A Closer Look at Classical Curriculum
If you’ve never heard of a classical curriculum, then you may be interested in what exactly it is
referring to. How can it make a difference in everything that you’re doing?How does it help your
child to grow and advance in their education? In this article, we’re going to give you an idea as
to what a classical curriculum is and how it can benefit your child as they grow and learn.
First off, you need to recognize that the process of a classical curriculum is made up of three
parts, and each of those parts is making it so that the mind is able to adapt and think well. Also, a
classical curriculum is set up in such a way that it follows the standard development of the child.
Essentially, whatever stage the child is at, the classical curriculum is going to match up with it,
making it much easier for the child to adapt to and embrace whatever it is that they’re learning.
Let’s take a look at the three parts in more detail.
The first part of classical curriculum is all about the building blocks. At this point in time, the
mind is ready to take in information, and educators work to make sure that the children are
getting all of the information that they want or need in order to succeed. Memorizing information
when they’re in elementary school is actually an enjoyable experience, so giving them things to
remember can really help them out. They will learn about all sorts of facts, including grammar,
how to speak, descriptions of plants and animals, and more. By giving them information to learn,
they have information to build upon as they get older.
The next part of the educational system is about analyzing information. This is that stage of life
where kids start asking the question “why” all of the time. Instead of just learning the
information that they were learning facts, they want to start to connect things and create
situations where cause and effect play a role in what they’re learning. So, during this stage, the
curriculum will shift from learning facts to learning how to think a bit more. How does that
caterpillar turn into a butterfly? Why do we get sick? How do birds and planes fly? By giving
children the ability to be curious and explore how things work and are put together, we help to
encourage this, and thus make it easier for them to learn as life goes on. This logical stage is
incredibly important to a child’s development, and so the curriculum matches that and allows
them to explore.
The last stage of the classical curriculum is about helping the child to find and embrace the
things that they enjoy and want to learn about. This is where they go to different events and learn
about the things they want to learn about. Are they interested in music? Then now’s the time for
singing or musical instrument lessons. Are they interested in art? Allow them to take art classes
during school. By giving them the freedom of individuality and the ability to explore anything
and everything that they want to learn about when it comes to their education, children start
becoming the adults that they want to be. This is where they decide (at least, for the first time)
what they may want to explore when they go on to higher education. This may also be where
children want to explore potential interests as well, and determine which they like and which
they dislike. This is, essentially, a higher form of exploration than the previous step, and the
curriculum parallels that stage.
Are you looking for a school that will help your child get started with a classical curriculum
that they can continue as they go into elementary, middle, and high school? Then take a look at
our program. We have years of experience in this area and we can help you to determine the best
course of action for your child’s future. By getting them engaged in learning, you will find that
it’s a lot easier for them to learn as they grow older.
