A Modern Take Classical Education
Most schools, private or public, have taken to a modern education philosophy of teaching facts and information. Kids are taught to soak up and regurgitate information on command.
To make a school "Christian" simply sprinkle the Bible on top of modern education trends.
Eukarya is different. Eukarya seeks to teach children like the founding fathers of our nation were taught. Instead of just raw information we are focused critical thinking skills and teaching children to analyze and understand knowledge on a deeper level.
Children who are taught in the classical method can recognize truth, see the beauty in the world, have an appetite for goodness, view the world from other people's viewpoints, and communicate effectively.
What We Emphasize
Classical Christian Education
Academics at Eukarya Christian Academy include Classical Christian Education Philosophies
At Eukarya Christian Academy we follow the classical educational philosophies that are defined in Dorothy Sayer’s Essay, “The Lost Tools of Learning”. In this essay, classical education is defined in 3 developmental stages and describes what may be expected at each developmental stage of classical Christian academics.
- Stage One: The Grammar Stage
Kindergarten through 6th grade
- Stage Two: The Dialectic Stage
7th through 9th grade
- Stage Three: The Rhetoric Stage
10th through 12th grade
Teaching the trivium (the three classical stages) through a Christian worldview prepares students for lifelong learning. Grammar, logic, and rhetoric are not merely subjects and stages but are tools of learning that may be applied to any subject. Every subject whether it be a language, history, science or knowledge contains fundamental grammar, a logical understanding of how those parts work together, that can be assimilated and communicated rhetorically. Classical education empowers its student with tools to approach any subject.
Students at Eukarya are presented a large amount of factual material. Memorization is easy for the student in this stage of development so we recite in Language Arts, we chant and sing in Latin, and we play games and use flashcards in Mathematics. In this way, our students learn the concrete facts of mathematics, grammar terms, phonics, historical dates, science terms, and Bible knowledge.
Students are taught to think analytically about the facts learned during the Grammar Stage. Since students are developmentally ready for abstract concepts, Eukarya teaches Formal Logic for a full year during this stage. Using the tools learned in logic, teachers can assign cross-curricular projects, ask students to formulate opinions and theories, create opportunities for research, and encourage students to investigate, debate, and communicate their thoughts orally and in writing.
Students demonstrate their abstract thoughts with wisdom and reason. The knowledge learned during the grammar stage and the understanding of how those facts relate in the dialectic stage is then further applied while exploring deeper into classic literature, mathematics, history, Christian apologetics, and laboratory sciences. A prominent feature of Rhetorical level classwork at Eukarya is the use of the Omnibus Curriculum. In Omnibus students further build their knowledge of history, social sciences, culture, and literature and apply it through constructive dialogue and criticism. Students are armed with the ability to write persuasive essays, research papers, and complete cross-curricular projects.
Cultivating Lifelong Learning for a Stronger Mindset and Perspective
Here at Eukarya, we believe that the best way to hone a child's capability is by teaching them how to think logically and embody the Christian virtues imparted by God through Christ.
We educate the wholeness of our students not to learn the academic basics merely but for them to acquire the highest degree of excellence while teaching them to become passionate people with strong moral character and Christ-like goodness.
Our education model and curriculum are modeled on the educational principles perfected by the Greeks and Romans while following the solid biblical framework that focuses on imitating Christ thru character, attitude, work, and service.
Classical education will help your children succeed academically and succeed in having an unshakeable faith.
An Overview of Eukarya's Major Subject Areas
Our language arts are divided into the following major components:
- Students who are starting to learn how to read will use Guided Reading groups.
- The Phonics Museum by Veritas Press and Explode the Code will be used within the class to teach the phonics lessons.
- Students who have already cracked the reading code and are ready for comprehensive development will use Literature Groups. Students will also read classical literature books depending on their reading level. Students will also read 6-8 chapter books per year.
- The Continuum of Literacy Learning by G. Pinnell and I. Fountas will be utilized by the teachers to create their teachers’ plans and lessons.
- Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System will be used for the quarterly assessment of the students.
- For emergent spellers we work with words through activities like making words, word sorts, and word family explorations.
- For students who are ready for spelling lists we assess them and provide a suitable word list for their development. Then, students will be tested regularly through The Grammar of Spelling word lists.
- First Language Lessons will be utilized by Kindergarten to 1st Grade to understand and memorize poetry, parts of speech, punctuation, and capitalization rules.
- Shurley Grammar is used by 2nd to 6th Grade students for them to know the proper punctuation and capitalization rules, as well as reference skills.
- For emergent writers we use First Language Lessons by Jessie Wise Bauer.
- Students will be utilizing "A Reason For Handwriting" to learn the proper letter formation of both manuscript and cursive.
- To learn writing with structure and style, students will use the "Institute for the Excellence in Writing.”
Reading is foundational to both our lower school and upper school. Students will be exposed to many books available in our school library. They are encouraged to read both their assignments and also word and chapter books according to their current skill level.
