The Classical Approach to Education
Classical education is one of the oldest forms of education with a foundation in Judeo-Christian culture. Until around 1850, it was used almost exclusively throughout Western Civilization for millenia and was most formally developed in the Middle Ages. This style of learning has produced some of the world’s greatest thinkers, inventors, entrepreneurs, and leaders, such as Augustine, Socrates, Luther, and many of our founding fathers. Why? Because this model does not simply teach students what to learn; it trains the mind in how to learn. It cultivates critical thinkers that are lifelong learners seeking out truth, goodness, and beauty in every aspect of their existence.
