WHAT IS CLASSICAL CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

Classical Christian education is a conscious return to the ancient goal of education: teaching children to think and learn for themselves by imparting to them the tools of learning. It is based on seeing the world (all subjects) through a biblical worldview. It is an approach to education that is rooted in the ancient medieval concept of the Trivium. The Trivium is comprised of three basic tools of learning: Grammar (the tool of knowledge), Logic (the tool of reasoning) and Rhetoric (the tool of communication and expression).

 

Classical education is language-focused (words both written and spoken), rather than image focused (pictures, videos, television). This is important because language focused learning requires the mind to work. The brain must translate symbols into words and words into pictures. Also, it trains the brain to pay attention for longer periods of time. Image focused learning is passive. The student can “sit back” and receive information and information is quick, entertaining, and does not train the brain to listen attentively.

 

Classical education connects knowledge and is systematic. Subjects are not taught in isolation. Teachers and students connect concepts through discussion which makes their learning more meaningful. This allows students to engage in meaningful conversations about what they have learned and to become lifelong learners.

 

We encourage you to become lifelong learners as well by learning more about Classical education and about Christian resources we used as a foundation for our school.  To read more about Classical education, check out the recommended reading on our parents page.
