What Is Classical Education?
The Classical Method refers to the style of education and also the content of the studies.
The Classical Method emphasizes the basics including mathematics, history, the sciences, and language studies including a study of Latin and classic literature. An awareness of and appreciation for the heritage of western civilization is developed.
Latin is introduced at the 4th grade level. Students will appreciate Latin’s value for English vocabulary and grammar, as a basis for foreign languages, and for training in detailed systematic study.
The Classical Method of study is organized according to the “Trivium,” the three-phase approach to education that capitalizes on developmental characteristics of students as they mature.
- The Grammar stage (K-6th grade) emphasizes the acquisition of basic facts in each subject. Young students enjoy absorbing information through songs, recitation, repetitious activities, and educational games.
- The Logic stage (grades 7-9) focuses on organizing facts learned in the Grammar stage while helping students address the question, “Why?” A formal study of logic gives focus to the naturally argumentative nature of students in this stage. Other tools of learning include debates, as well as research and persuasive writing projects.
- The Rhetoric stage (grades 10-12) refines the students’ ability to persuasively express the grammar and logic of a subject through written and oral presentations, as well as debate.
