The world is full of knowledge, and to the classical mind, all knowledge is interrelated. Trying to find the links between fields of study can be a mind-twisting task. A Classical Education meets this challenge by using history as its organizing outline – beginning with the Ancients (6000 BC to AD 500), up to the Middle Ages (500-1600), continuing onto the Early Modern period (1600-1850), and progressing forward to Modern Times (1850-Present Day) in history, science, literature, art, and music. Accordingly, subject areas of our Classical Education program are linked to history studies and taught around the time period under study in history bringing a more meaningful and connected curriculum to the minds of our scholars. All curriculum employed at Capstone Classical Academy will follow the guidelines of classical education.
Scholars will embark upon an educational experience that is rich, rigorous, and thought provoking so as to reach our mission, which is to graduate scholars out into our community that are prepared for their next steps, be that a career or a university placement, and are able to be responsible, critically thinking citizens.
Some of the curricula scholars will engage with on a daily basis are: Core Knowledge, in grades six through eight, alongside Memoria Press Logic, Singapore Math, and The Bible Literacy Project Bible History. Ninth through twelfth graders will be immersed in Great Books, Prentice Hall Classics Math, Prentice Hall Science, Pearson History, Constitutionality, NCBCPS Bible Literature, Memoria Press Latin, and Memoria Press Rhetoric.
Curriculum will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and may be replaced, although the new curriculum must adhere to the classical requirements of the academy.
