WHY A CATHOLIC CLASSICAL CURRICULUM?
The Classical curriculum is a time proven method that nurtures student's intellectual and spiritual potential, inspiring them to want to learn. It teaches them logic, reason and critical thinking; showing them how not just what to think.
A Classical education develops students' analytical and critical thinking skills by teaching them how to use reason and think logically. This prepares children for higher-level learning, teaches them to become solutions-oriented problem-solvers, and develops independent thinkers who seek the truth; all through the lens of our Catholic Faith.
Does this time tested approach still work in today's education systems where standardized tests have taken over?
The answer is a resounding YES! Students who learn through this method have been shown to:
Have higher SAT scores in reading, math and writing as compared to those from other public, independent and religious schools (1).
