The loss of faith among young Christians in the Millennial Generation (est. 50-70%) is now well established and is based upon solid research in the last ten years. The solutions emerging all hone in on the role of the church, in general, and youth ministries in particular with an ancillary role for parents. Universally ignored has been the contribution of secondary school experience. A 2014 study of all alumni of Ad Fontes Academy, revealed the vital role classical Christian education can play in addressing this challenge and the principles and practices upon which any school can contribute to reversing the current trend among emerging Christian adults.
