In the Fundamentals Program we seek to cultivate the young student’s mind by providing them with a smorgasbord of facts that are fully integrated with the historical time period we are currently studying and that will serve as “pegs” of knowledge upon which the student will be able to return to when studying the historical time period again at another stage of the trivium (logic stage, rhetoric stage).
In the Masters Program we are building on that solid grammar foundation as students enter the dialectic stage.
In the Logic Program we continue to cultivate the students’ minds by now building upon the facts that they have accumulated throughout the grammar stage. No longer are they just memorizing facts. Now the students begin to make connections between these facts during their classroom experiences as they begin to explore original texts both in history and in literature, in practical science courses with lab work, in writing compositions that are integrated with the historical time period, in Latin, art, mathematics, and English grammar.
