CLASSICAL SCHOOL

Liberty Classical Academy’s classical approach arose out of the desire to provide a challenging, high-quality education that would provide emotional, intellectual and spiritual nurturing for the children. Classes are designed around a study of the flow of western history from Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and Israel to the present day. We use an integrated, unit-study approach that emphasizes experiential education and classic literature.
