Classical Middle School (5th Grade-8th Grade)

Middle school follows the design of the elementary program. The 5-8 grades of classical education are the Dialectic Stage which emphasizes logical thinking and debate.

Daily lesson plans are presented in a user-friendly format enabling parents who are not educators to present the lesson effectively.  Rather than the traditional lecture format, the lesson plans are Socratic in nature; provide leading questions that encourage the student to make discoveries. The lesson plans:

  • indicate the skills and competencies that are being taught
  • provide direction for each day
  • list materials needed for each lesson

Suggestions are given for formal and informal evaluations. Nationally-normed standardized tests are provided each quarter and at the end of the year.
