Practically: What Does it Mean to Be a Classical School?

Posted by Joy Hale on Jun 25, 2019 10:00:00 AM

In the video below, Keith Castello explains the goal of classical education as leading students to discern, articulate and practice truth, goodness, and beauty in their lives.

Classical Education Part 1

Practically, what does leading a child to discern, articulate, and practice truth, goodness, and beauty look like during a student's school day? What are teachers doing to accomplish this goal?

Here is a recent example of "classical" in action at CCA:

In the 7th grade Bible class, the students were given an assignment to write and illustrate a story to communicate the gospel message.  After completion, the students read and explained their stories to the 2nd grade classes. The 2nd graders were especially excited to see the 7th graders because the two grades were reading buddies last school year.

The Unlucky Story of Jose by Weston Cox and Abe Rutherford was one of my favorites.

This is a beautiful example of students learning to articulate truth, goodness, and beauty.
