Academics

Our approach to academic excellence is delivered through Classical Educational Methods. We focus on three stages of instruction: Knowledge, Ideas, and Skills. The early years are the grammar stage, which students learn concrete facts. These concrete facts turn into ideas and questions for the students to explore. Finally, they learn to apply and defend their ideas thoughtfully through dialogue.
