Our Language Arts curriculum encourages a love for the beautiful expression of the spoken and written word, for only in a love affair with beauty will students passionately seek to find and elegantly express truth. That love affair is ignited, in primary and middle school, when teachers model the structure and elegance of the English language. We“model” such expression in a number of ways:
- The Telling and Retelling of Fables and Fairy Tales
- Poetry Memorization and Recitation
- Dictation and Copying
- Rigorous Grammar Curriculum
Institute for Excellence in Writing (I.E.W.)
Our school uses the rigorous writing program from Institute for Excellence in Writing because it is based on the basic principle from Aristotle, humans learn by imitation. In this unique curriculum students learn how to write by studying beautiful and concise examples of writing.
