Our Academic Program

Classical Consortium teaches students to become independent learners, logical thinkers and articulate speakers. But more than just academic skills, we build love of God's wisdom and strong character into our program so that our students are "equipped for every good work" 2 Timothy 3:17.

Primary Level K-2nd

Laying the foundation of knowledge through exposure to each subject area and memorization of important facts.

Grammar Level 3rd-6th

Laying the foundation of knowledge through exposure to each subject area and memorization of important facts.

Logic Level 7th-8th

Teaching students to develop critical thinking skills and learn to analyze arguments.

Rhetoric Level 9th-12th

Equipping students to recognize God's truth in all areas of study and elegantly communicate their ideas.

What is a Classical Christian Education?

1. God is at the center of all learning and our ultimate source of Truth. Our mission is to help our students to see the Good, the True, and the Beautiful in this world God has created.

2. Classical Christian education seeks to develop a love of wisdom and strong character in our students. Students learn the value of perseverance as they are challenged academically, and they see the beauty that comes through doing hard things. In community they serve others and see godly character modeled through parents and teachers.

3. Classical education is based on the Trivium, an understanding of how a child's brain works at each stage of development. By using particular teaching techniques in the context of specific courses, students are equipped to reach their full God-given potential. The Trivium includes three stages: Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric.


Academic Challenge

Classical Consortium is a classical Christian program which by definition is an academically rigorous one. However, it is not a program designed only for the gifted student. Expectations are high, but not unreachable by average students. It is important to remember that not every child is a straight “A” student and that your student’s expectations of grades may have to be adjusted. At Classical Consortium, we strive to help you challenge your child academically and grow his/her character.

We highly recommend that you read Douglas Wilson’s book
Recovering The Lost Tools of Learning for a complete understanding of the benefits of and methods unique to a classical Christian education.
