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 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|
