The TKCA 2022-2023 School Year Begins August 23rd
The goal of Classical, Christian Education (CCE) is to develop students who love learning, think clearly, articulate persuasively, and evaluate everything in light of the Bible. It does that by cultivating a love of learning and virtue through classical methodology that has been proven to work over centuries. We prepare students to influence the culture by engaging them with the great ideas that have shaped Western Civilization.
Fundamentally, CCE trains students to seek out and enjoy all that is true, good, and beautiful.
In 1948, Dorothy Sayers wrote an essay titled The Lost Tools of Learning. In that essay she suggested that children be taught according to the three stages of development called The Trivium.
The ancients divided all of learning into seven liberal arts. The first three were known as The Trivium. It provides a structure and methodology for a strong elementary through high school education. It can be summarized as follows:
Here, children find it fun to learn songs and chants that help them memorize facts in Math, English, Bible, Geography, and Latin.
Preteens and teens naturally begin to ask "Why?", and this stage of the Trivium teaches students to think clearly and independently with reasoned principles. Students in the logic stage desire to understand the why and how of the subjects they are learning.
Rhetoric is the art of communicating well. Once a student has obtained the knowledge of facts, and can successfully arrange those facts into an organized argument, they can then effectively communicate those skills to others.
