What is Classical Christian Education?

The core of classical education is the trivium, which, simply put, is a teaching model that seeks to tailor the curriculum subject matter to a child's cognitive development. 

 

The trivium emphasizes:

  • concrete thinking and memorization of the facts of the subjects in grade school;

  • analytical thinking and understanding of the subjects in middle school; and

  • abstract thinking and articulation of the subjects in high school. 

Subjects unique to classical education which help accomplish the goals of the trivium are:

  • grammar, the science of language usage;

  • logic, the science of right thinking; and

  • rhetoric, the science of verbal and written expression. 

Classical Christian education is further characterized by a rich exposure to the history, art, and culture of Western Civilization, including:

  • it's languages (Latin and Greek),

  • it's philosophy and literature (the great books of Western Civilization and the Christian tradition), and

  • the development of a Biblical worldview with theology in its proper place as the Queen of the Sciences.
