Inspired by the Classical Model
Our philosophy of education and definition of rigor has been inspired by the Classical model. Key principles we have embraced include a focus on the whole person, embracing age-appropriate instruction (Grammar > Logic > Rhetoric), the teaching of cultural heritage, and a strong emphasis on Arts, Music, and Language Arts. We place an emphasis on the development of Christian character and an understanding of God’s Word as a way to inform learning and growth throughout life. We value truth, beauty and goodness.
- Grammar Stage (K-5)
The early years of school are spent absorbing facts, systematically laying the foundation for advanced study.
- Logic Stage (6-8)
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.
