Challenge: What's it all about?
Grammar, Dialectic, and Rhetoric...oh, my!
Challenge, the next BIG step!
What if you're student has never been through Foundations or Essentials? Not to worry! We have had many students jump right in to a Challenge program without having done Classical Conversations at all! They have proven themselves to be very successful and able to complete the program.
At this fun and engaging event, we will discuss the curriculum, the schedule and the costs. We will have both students and parents of Challenge students available to answer questions and discuss their experiences with the various programs we offer.

It's Not Too Early to Plan!
Research: the study of the natural world
Students discover the sciences through this strand. An emphasis is placed on researching and presenting a topic in writing through research papers and lab reports. Students also develop useful study skills through the use of science textbooks.
Exposition and Composition: the study of humane letters
Students read classic literature and engage in discussions about theme, purpose, context, and meaning. Students are challenged to further explore their ideas through writing persuasive essays and presenting them to the class.
Grammar: the study of language
Latin is used to practice learning a language. Students learn an English grammar concept and then learn how to systematically and analytically apply the concept in Latin. Students learn vocabulary and translate sentences which gradually increase in complexity from short sentences about the Romans attacking the Gauls to original speeches by Cicero.
