Liberty Classical Academy arose out of the desire to provide a challenging, high-quality education
that would provide emotional, intellectual and spiritual nurturing for children. We use an integrated,
unit-study approach that emphasizes classic literature and experiential education.
Liberty Classical Academy structures its curriculum within a classical framework:
Students younger than 12 years old are in the Grammar Stage. It is a time period when children naturally acquire knowledge, facts, and information. The Grammar Stage teaches the foundation of all learning, as well as a love of learning.
From 5th grade to high school, students are in the Logic Stage. This is a time when students begin to pay attention to cause and effect, the relationships between different fields of knowledge, and the way facts fit together into a logical framework.
The student of Rhetoric applies the rules of logic to the foundational information learned in the Grammar Stage, and expresses his conclusions in clear, forceful, elegant language. Students also begin to specialize in the branch of knowledge that attracts them.

"I was lucky enough to be born into a wonderful family, and to attend a quite extraordinary school from a very young age. My family has always cultivated my education, but at Liberty Classical Academy I eventually understood what learning truly is. LCA's foundational principle is teaching its students how to think, not what to think, and I thrived in this environment.
