The Catholic Classical Curriculum... You Have A Choice

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:

  1. Have higher SAT scores in reading, math and writing as compared to those from other public, independent and religious schools (1).
  2. Will learn to speak and write more effectively, more articulately and more persuasively.
  3. Will develop the skills, self-confidence and moral filter needed to navigate our increasingly complex society.
