Reading and Literature
Our students study meaningful classical literature throughout all grade levels.  Students read, analyze and enjoy a variety of selections throughout the year.

Phonics and Spelling
Phonics and Spelling are taught on a daily basis in our primary grades.  Intensive phonics in the early grades gives the students a sound foundation and is an extremely successful method of teaching.   Daily practice helps our students develop word recognition and reading skills.

English and Composition
English Grammar Recitation and Classical Composition are taught in grades 3-8.  Students learn how to examine and discuss literature and poetry and express themselves with accuracy, transparency and distinctiveness through their own writing.  Our program teaches students the art of communication in a logical, organized approach as they learn to refine and master their writing skills.
