When you think of a classical education, something that is rooted in old ideas, it might conjure up thoughts of rigid lessons but that is not what we are proposing. Classical education is incredibly stimulating for a child because the goal is not acquiring facts to pass a test or a smattering of random knowledge.The goal of a classical education is actually to develop in a child the tools of the mind she will need to engage and understand any information with which she might be confronted and to be a lifelong lover of learning. Likewise, the subjects are not studied in random isolation, but are integrated as they are studied in historical chronology.
Ideas fit together in cohesive way. This approach allows for deeper meaning and resonance. This method does not merely teach “subjects” but teaches how to think and in doing so, lead others.Is classical education still relevant for our fast and technological age? A society that forgets to train the young to think wisely slowly erodes its freedom. It opens us to embracing any illogical argument that elicits an emotional response.There will always be cultural fads that come and go, so what will help students see the big picture in the midst of a fast moving world? Furthermore, demands in the marketplace are always evolving, but those who acquire new skills quickly and independently will always be at the top of any field.
