Latin plays an important role in helping to develop literacy skills and English vocabulary skills for students at all levels. Additionally, through the study of Latin, students can build a solid base for the subsequent study of Romance languages such as Spanish, French, and Italian.
A true classical education gives a student the tools of learning, not through superficial subject completion but through the use of focused concentration on just a few subjects to develop key skills. Our focus is on creating lifelong learners who are able to learn for themselves. They themselves will fill in any “gaps” as they continue to grow and mature.
Students learn the language through the exploration of the histories of Italy, geography, the Vulgate, and various other historical aspects of the birth of Christ and Christianity. More than just grammar and rhetoric, students learn to use the language in a context-appropriate, Classical manner.
The classical education movement has received a strong reception within the homeschool community in recent years, and with good reason. Classical methodology, when taught properly, teaches students how to think and learn for themselves. As the benefits become widely known, more classical programs are being written and marketed to homeschool families than ever before. But while they may appear similar on the surface, classical programs can in fact have quite different approaches.
