THE 4 PILLARS OF EASTBROOK ACADEMY
Eastbrook Academy aligns itself with the Truth as upheld in the Bible and taught by Jesus Christ. At the same time, we accept all students and families who understand and agree to abide by the standard the school sets by that faith. While rigorous academics is key, spiritual truths are required to prepare your student for life and eternity.
The classical education model at Eastbrook Academy is based on a three-part process of training the student’s mind. This classical approach is called the trivium. In a biblical sense, it could be viewed as stages of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
I. Grammar Stage (K-4)
The early years of school is spent absorbing facts, systematically laying the foundation for advanced study.
II. Logic Stage (5-8)
At the middle school level, teachers teach skills of reasoning, critical thinking, analysis, and evaluation. Students learn to discern causes, motives, and to investigate theory.
III. Rhetoric Stage (9-12)
In high school, students learn to express themselves and become proficient in communicating analyzed information. They ask questions, investigate the truth and then formulate responses. They hone their communication skills by defending their position both verbally and in writing.
