Classical Liberal Arts High School Courses
How is a “classical” curriculum different from what they’re doing in other schools?

Classical schools teach all of the subjects in an integrated manner. History, literature, philosophy, and theology are pursued together to create a rich experience with history throughout time.

Classical schools aim to cultivate wisdom and virtue through teaching students Latin, exposing them to “Great Books” and focusing on appreciation of “beauty, goodness, and truth.”

Classical versus Secular
Ordered toward eternal happiness  Ordered toward material ends 
Integration of subjects, knowledge, faith Fragmented, industrialized   
Restores meaning and purpose  Focus on practical skills 
Awakes wonder  Emphasis on information   
Nurtures the moral imagination  Ignores the moral imagination   
Cultivates habits of rigorous thinking    One mile wide, one inch deep 
Constant discussion = active learning Lectures + testing = passive learning
Develops intellectual freedom Limits theological exposure
