A Classical Christian Culture Growing Mind, Body, and Spirit
Classical education teaches the art of learning – more than what to think, but how to think. While once the traditional educational model, classical education has become counter-cultural. Through its language-focused learning approach, development of well-ordered reasoning skills, and pursuit of Christian virtues and godly wisdom, a classically-trained student not only seeks out that which is good, true, and beautiful, but effectively guides others toward these virtues as well.
The primary focus of the grammar stage is to build a strong foundation for all other learning. At this age, children are eager to learn and memorize new facts, which we often help them retain with songs, jingles, and rhymes. These facts that span all subjects from Bible to history to science become the building blocks upon which they apply reasoning skills later on.
During the school of logic years – the early teenage years – children begin to think independently and question the why and how of things. Classical Christian education fosters this natural tendency by introducing reasoning skills, argument structure, and methods by which to evaluate ideas.
Students in the school of rhetoric are training to assimilate what they have learned and to articulate these ideas eloquently, both in written and verbal form. They are practicing the skills essential for a meaningful lifetime of learning.
