What is a
Classical Education?

A Curriculum Rooted in
Western History and Culture
AND
Instructed Through
Traditional Teaching Methods
What Will Your Child Learn?
Academic Excellence
How to Be a Good Citizen
How to Grow as Faithful Sons and Daughters of God
So... How is it different from other systems of Education?
OTHER SCHOOLS PRIMARILY SEEK TO PREPARE STUDENTS FOR THE FUTURE.
WHILE WE TOO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS SHOULD BE A PROMINENT END RESULT OF A GOOD EDUCATION...
WE
ALSO SEEK TO TEACH
OUR STUDENTS TO VALUE KNOWLEDGE FOR ITS OWN SAKE!

The Fruits of a Neumann Education
Who will our children be at the end of their classical education?
Studies show that
students at classical curriculum schools tend to test higher than students from other schools. They are also more likely to do well in both college and the
workplace.
Anthony B. Splittgerber, ‘The Effects of Classical Education on Achievement in Lutheran Schools’ (2010, Concordia University) http://www.zionkearney.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Splittgerber.classicalresearch.spring2010.pdf
A study in Philadelphia showed 4th – 6th graders who studied Latin placed a full year higher on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.
And yes...
Students who study Latin also test
higher than other students.
Similarly, the 1981 LaFleur study found that the average verbal score for Latin students on the SAT was nearly 150 points higher than those of non-Latin students.
For additional research on the study of Latin and academic performance see Alice K. DeVane, ‘Efficacy of Latin Studies in the Information Age’ (1997, Valdosta State University) http:// teach.valdosta.edu/whuitt/files/latin.html
But why is that?
Dorothy Sayers: "[T]he best grounding for education is the Latin grammar. I say this, not because Latin is traditional and mediaeval, but simply because even a rudimentary knowledge of Latin cuts down the labor and pains of learning almost any other subject by at least fifty percent. It is the key to the vocabulary and structure of all the Teutonic [and Romance] languages, as well as to the technical vocabulary of all the sciences and to the literature of the entire Mediterranean civilization, together with all its historical documents. … Latin should be begun as early as possible–at a time when inflected speech seems no more astonishing than any other phenomenon in an astonishing world; and when the chanting of “Amo, amas, amat” is as ritually agreeable to the feelings as the chanting of “eeny, meeny, miney, moe.” (Dorothy Sayers, “The Lost Tools of Learning”)
Your son or daughter will have a good grasp of Western History and Culture
And will have been taught to appreciate all that our predecessors have to offer us!
They will have learned the teachings of the Catholic Church from Orthodox sources and teachers...
And will have discovered that learning does not end when school ends... Rather, they will seek to become life-long learners and lovers of education.
