The Classical School (TCS), The First Academy’s hybrid home school program, serves students in grades K-12. The curriculum at TCS is designed to develop students both academically and spiritually through classical elements that include a focus on memorization, training students to think critically, and teaching them to speak and write persuasively. Because of this, students will be prepared for collegiate rigor.
Through our Living Curriculum teachers, those who emphasize rigor, relevance, and relationships in the learning process, The Classical School is able to shape life-long learners who seek wisdom beyond scholarship, service before self, character before career, and participation as a way of life.
The Classical School grades K-5 students, when on campus, are in self-contained classrooms where they focus on core subject areas such as math, language arts, science, social studies, and Bible. Additionally, students attend special area classes such as art, physical education and Latin. Middle School students rotate through academic classes like math, history, science, English, art, Bible, debate, Latin, and logic. Each Spring, students in grades K-8 participate in Terra Nova 3 Standardized Testing.
