What is the foundation of a great education?
Foundations is a grammar-stage program for children age twelve and under and their parents. Using creative activities, games, and lots of enthusiasm, Foundations tutors make memorization fun. Tutors use techniques such as drawing to teach geography, singing to teach Latin, mnemonics in science, singing and rebuses for history, visual pegs to teach the timeline, and movements to teach English grammar. The facts they memorize establish a set of knowledge “pegs” on which they will “hang” the details of higher learning in later years.
What are the essentials of math and language arts?
The Essentials program is a bridge between the grammar and dialectic stages and prepares students for the Challenge program. This power-packed course guides fourth- to sixth-grade students and their parents through the foundational principles of language structure and analysis, the structure and style of writing, and arithmetic speed and accuracy.
