What is a Classical & Christ-Centered Education?

In all its levels, it is…

A Classical Education is provided by:

  • Emphasizing grammar, logic, and rhetoric in all subjects, which are described as follows:
    • Grammar Stage (Grades K – 6): The fundamental facts and rules of each subject.
    • Logic (Grades 7 – 9): The ordered relationship of particulars in each subject.
    • Rhetoric (Grades 10-12): The clear expression and application of the grammar and logic of each subject may be clearly expressed.
  • Encouraging every student to develop a love for learning and live up to his or her academic potential. By virtue of its definition, the classical model is both academically challenging and developmentally appropriate.
