A Classical & Christian Education

"To introduce children to literature is to install them in a very rich and glorious kingdom, to bring a continual holiday to their doors, to lay before them a feast exquisitely served."
-Charlotte Mason

The Parts of a​ Classical Curriculum:

"The start of learning...lies in reading, but its consummation lies in meditation; which, if any man will learn to love it..and...be engaged very frequently upon it, renders his life pleasant..and provides the greatest consolation to him in his trials."

"It is in the seven liberal arts, however, that the foundation of all learning is to be found. Before all others these ought to be had at hand, because without them the philosophical discipline does not and cannot explain and define anything. These, indeed, so hang together and so depend upon one another in their ideas that if only one of the arts be lacking, all the rest cannot make a man into a philosopher."

-Hugh of St. Victor

 All of the arts culuminate in Philosophy & Theology

 ​The Trivium - Grammar, Logic, & Rhetoric

 ​The Quadrivium - Math, Sciences, & Music  

The Curriculum at St. George

The curriculum at St. George invites students to enter upon a life-long journey, to see the world that God made, through the wisdom of old books. Our curriculum derives from a number of sources: Hillsdale College, Memoria Press, Core Knowledge Sequence, and others. We believe in a whole-person educational method, where virtue is developed in mind and body, through training in the tools of learning as well as life skills, physical education, and the exploration of the natural world in the great outdoors.

K-2nd Curriculum

Children at this age, often called the "pre-Grammar stage", are beginning to learn their letters, building words and sentences. We use a variety of methods to guide them towards mastery of English grammar, including Orton-Gillingham based phonics, Bible memorization, as well as the immersive Latin program of Lingua Latina developed by Hans Orberg. We use Singapore math, and science is taught through hands on gardening and field trips. Music is learned in chapel, and children learn to develop their physical abilities through P.E. and outdoor play. 

3rd-8th Curriculum

At these grade levels, there is an increased emphasis on Grammar and Logic. ​Students develop greater confidence in their reading ability, as they begin to encounter great works of literature by authors from Homer to C.S. Lewis. Latin grammar is formally taught. Latin and English prayers and Bible verses are memorized. An increased capacity for mathematical computation and Logic enables them to see the value in the life of the mind, and they begin to formulate their own answers to the great questions of life, of science and faith.
