Traditional Education

We believe that learning, hard work, and fun are not mutually exclusive and that learning should be a joyful and exciting endeavor, especially for children. Traditional Education is the foundation of our curriculum. During the K-6 years, also known as the Grammar Stage in Classical education, our students focus on learning the fundamental rules, terms, and facts about subjects.
