Age-Specific K-12 Learning
In applying the trivium classical Christian schools use the children's God-given strength at each stage of growth to help them learn.
In the Grammar Stage, young children enjoy memorizing, singing, and rhymes through which a solid foundation is laid in each sbject of study.
Junior-high students are inquisitive, so we develop their ability to reason and sidcenr truth in the Logic Stage.
High School wants to talk, so we teach them how to present their ideas persuasively in the Rhetoric Stage.
This result in the a graduate who is confident!
The classical school graduate knows what he or she believes and why, and leaves school equipped to positively impact the community around him.
