An essential component of CALLA’s mission is to foster the academic development of classical education in the context of the Lutheran confession. To further that mission, CALLA draws together scholars and educators from colleges and universities that appreciate the value of a classical education in the 21st century. CALLA partners with other schools within the Concordia University System and other Lutheran colleges in order to develop a coordinated and complementary approach to classical education.
CALLA also reaches out to classical Christian educators who share a commitment to the historic confessions of the Christian church. While valuing the work accomplished within other confessional circles, CALLA seeks to act as a unique institution to strengthen the classical Christian educational community. By supporting and encouraging other colleges and universities, CALLA promotes a strong and vibrant classical education community empowered to be a positive influence on the church and the world.
