WHY A CLASSICAL EDUCATION?
What is a classical education? It's composed of three stages called the Trivium. It breaks down the Who, What, Where, When, How and Why of a subject into three separate categories. These three categories correlate to a child's development. This method is a methodology of learning how to learn and learning how to think.
"Is not the great defect of our education today --- a defect traceable through all the disquieting symptoms of trouble that I have mentioned -- that although we often succeed in teaching our pupils "subjects," we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to think?" - Dorothy Sayers
"I’ve just been on a journey—an adventure—beginning at the base of an immense mountain God wanted me to climb. It was so overwhelming at first, I couldn’t see the summit. So He gave me guides and mentors to lead me up the mountain. He also gave me many wonderful teachers who provided me with tools for climbing—tools such as Math and Science, Logic and Rhetoric. These tools helped me to begin and continue my journey." - April Smith, 2017 Graduate
