Classical Curriculum

two_studentsASA offers a Classical education.

A Classical approach to Education is an ideal choice for students with or without special needs and even for advanced students because it:

  • Capitalizes on a student’s natural abilities at every stage of development.
  • Encourages application of higher order thinking skills such as analysis, judgment, and evaluation of content.
  • Allows for flexibility as the curriculum can be easily expanded for the advanced child.
  • Utilizes a spiral model, a continuous and structured revisiting of concepts but at a deeper level each time. which benefits all students.
  • Offers hands-on, experiential opportunities supported with the use of “real” books instead of only textbooks.
