"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all."

—Aristotle

Classical Education

One of the hallmarks of classical education is a rich and engaging curriculum in which all subjects are seamlessly woven together.

Intentional Design

The chronological study of history serves as an organizing framework for understanding the great thinkers, events, and ideas that have shaped our world. Grammar, phonics, vocabulary, and handwriting are systematically taught to ensure mastery of the fundamental tools of writing. Classic works of literature give opportunities to read closely with comprehension and engagement.

Each element of the curriculum is intentionally chosen in order to help students recognize the interconnectedness of ideas and find their place in the great conversation.

Proven Methods

Our teachers use time-tested methods that work with the grain of a child’s development, including songs and movement, guided discovery, round-table discussions, and Socratic questioning.

Beyond the Classroom

We are blessed to call the city of Chicago our classroom, with several world-class museums on our doorstep. As part of a holistic education, field trips at every grade level allow us to provide our students with hands-on experiences that support and enhance a robust and rich curriculum.
