A short-term missionary about her experience using Rafiki’s classical Christian curriculum: “[Rafiki students] are exposed to facets of learning I never had as a teacher nor as a student in the United States. The Freshmen class begins the study of Othello next Monday; the Sophomore class is just finishing a 7-week study of English poet John Donne; a week ago the 6th graders acted out a scene from The Iliad, Homer’s adventures of Ulysses.”
