  • Friday Elective Highlight - K-1 Hands On Science

    Learning about God's amazing creation is fun and exciting, even when it comes to learning about rocks.  Recently our kinders and 1st graders did an experiment sifting with screens different sizes of gravel, pebbles, and small river rocks. They are also bringing rocks to class to determine what type they might be.  There's just so much to learn and marvel over!

  • Friday Elective Highlight - Torchlighers

    This year our campus is offering a new grammar elective - Torchlighters.  Mrs. Kellie Parmar has been instrumental in its inception. The class is designed to teach about Church history and mission work across the ages.  This past week, our students learned about Martin Luther and his contribution to not only the Church, but also, more broadly, to western culture.  

    In imitation of Luther, our students created three 'theses' that they believe will lead to "a good and proper classroom." They then 'hammered' their theses to the door of the classroom for all to see.

    Please enjoy these pictures of the postings!

  • Friday Elective Highlight - Hands On Science

    On Fridays, we offer many choices for our grammar students, and one of the most popular is our Hands On Science class. In Classical education, we approach 'science' as natural philosophy; we observe God's creation to see His abundant creativity and wonder about how and why what we see happens.

    This semester, our 2nd through 4th graders are studying the unit "Flight and Rocketry". They are observing gravity and how to defy it. In this lesson, the students used surface area to create air resistance with parachutes.  

    Each semester the unit changes, so a grammar student could take Hands On Science his or her entire grammar school experience and never repeat the same lessons! It's great to see our students excited about their own learning.

  • Health, Fitness and FUN!

    Classical education is so much more than just an academic approach to math and reading. In our modern context and as residents of a postmodern, perhaps post-postmodern, society, it seems almost natural to see things in their discreet parts and not as created wholes. This includes our children. Many institutions in our day, schools foremost, address only one 'part' of our children's experience ignoring everything that makes them whole and human. 

    Charlotte Mason, a 19th century educator, is influential in regards to our Classical approach.  She recognized the failures of modern education even back in the mid-1800s. She stated clearly that children are born persons, meaning that we are not a 'tabula rasa' to be written upon or a brain packaged in muscles and bones. We, and our children, are an integrated whole - a mind and soul in a body. 

    So, how to we as a school care for all the parts in a holsitic way?  How do we engage all aspects of the children that we serve? We offer a rigorous academic education to engage their minds and imaginations.  We point them towards wonder and worship as forms of soul formation.  And, we honor their bodies in play and movement. Physical education is as important to growing bodies as math and reading.  Our bodies and brains work together to keep each other healthy! Enjoy the pictures and video of our students having FUN by moving their bodies.

    The Virtues are moral muscles, and there are foundational muscle groups that every human, as a moral being, should know something about.
    The Cardinal Virtues are the four foundational virtues, upon which nearly all other virtues are built. These cardinal virtues—and the ability to strengthening or weakening them over time—are a gift of grace given to all humans by God.
