What is a Classical School?
Classical education is about giving our children the fundamental intellectual skills that will make them think for themselves and critically understand and evaluate the world around them.
Through a curriculum that focuses on language and the written word and the tradition of Western Christian culture, children learn a vast array of universal competencies and skills.
Throughout their school years, and starting from pre-school, children move from the grammar phase to the logic one, and ultimately to the rhetoric one. We consider this teaching approach the perfect foundation for bringing up responsible and caring Christian children and future adults.
What is School Education like in a Classical Christian School?
Here at Providence Classical School
, we believe that Classical Christian education should start from preschool, through kindergarten, middle school, and finally high school.
Classical education starts with the grammar phase at kindergarten. Children are taught to observe and memorize while learning the basics.
The logic phase is taught in middle school, when students begin to ask questions and appraise certainties by debating about them.
The rhetoric phase is taught in high school, by which time students have grasped all the knowledge from the previous two phases and can now critically judge topics to draw their own conclusions.
By the end of their school education, children have acquired a breadth of knowledge and have understood the essentials of truth, wisdom, and integrity.
We believe that a truly Christian education from kindergarten to high school equips children with the values, love, and faith transmitted to us by Jesus. The combination of classical and Christian education is the most outstanding way to teach children to think for themselves, build their character, and communicate with excellence.
After leaving a private school, children will be able to take their Christian faith and share it within the greater community, while living a life worthy of Jesus.
The variety of educational opportunities offered to our students of all ages means that our education center provides a learning space dedicated to excellence. Our loving and supportive community makes sure that all children and parents are guided throughout the learning process.
