The Imago School was founded in 1981 by two former L’Abri staff members, Linny Dey and Joodi Ward. At that time, the school opened its doors to 13 students in Grades 1-6, striving to instill excellence in spiritual, moral, intellectual, cultural, and physical formation.
Unbeknownst to these two women, they, alongside many other faithful Christians, were pioneers in what has today become known as the Christian Classical schooling movement. In a unique and specialized way, the Imago school has sought to adhere to the following tenets:
- To provide a nurturing Christian atmosphere where biblical truth is taught as an integral part of all subjects.
- To provide an excellent education that measurably exceeds that available in other schools as evidenced by standardized tests and high school placements.
- To offer an affordable education to diverse Christian families who live in the western suburbs of Boston, including those working in full-time ministry and serving in our military.
Today, the Imago school operates a Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade program.
Students who leave the Imago School consistently perform with distinction in the surrounding high schools. As a result, we are today seeing the children of our early students coming to receive an Imago education.
