Classical education is a holistic approach to learning that seeks the flourishing of its students in mind, body and soul. Classical education provides the traditional tools of learning – grammar, logic and rhetoric – so that students learn to use these tools to become wise and virtuous leaders in all aspects of their lives. Before other styles of education became popular, liberal education rooted in the classic texts of Western civilization was the primary way children were educated. Today, this approach to liberal education has been coined “classical,” indicating a return to and restoration of the style of education that is meant to make us truly free and flourishing.
Classical education is a time-tested approach to learning. In fact, it’s how great minds learned for centuries. It strives to build a firm foundation for students in each phase of their intellectual and social development, acknowledging that a student who is good at math, reading and writing will be well-equipped later in his education and life.
