grammar school (3-6)

We focus on training the mind through the study of the liberal arts and the great books.

We focus on training the heart through prayer, self-discipline and imitation of great men and women.

classes

Students in grades three through six will participate in a full day of block courses from 8:00am to 3:30pm. These classes are designed to build on the foundation laid in the Primary years, while focusing more in-depth on four pillars of classical education: Latin, Classical Studies, Literature and Composition.


An energetic, qualified teacher will give all the instruction for the week, with moderate assignments to be completed at home by the student. All tests and grading will be given by the parent and sent in for the teacher to review.
