Classical Model

Colearn Classical Communities are built for families who want to dive deep into the study of History, Science and Enrichment. We are using a loose Classical education model, designed to be a fun and non-stressful way for students to learn. We use the 3 stages of learning in the Classical model:

Grammar Stage (K-5)

Students learn through memorization, soaking up information through song, games, and hands- on exploration of their world. This stage lays the foundation of all future areas of study in a child's life.

Logic Stage (6th-8th)

Students are encouraged to dive deep, ask questions, and analyze information. During this stage, there is an emphasis on using logic to ask questions, analyze and organize facts that they have learned.

Rhetoric Stage (9th-12th)

Students are ready to use the skills laid in the foundations of their learning to form conclusions and to express themselves with confidence. Students are taught to analyze and synthesize their own thoughts, beliefs and opinions.


All grade levels will study the same 4 year cycle of science and history. The topics repeat every 4 years, allowing for a comprehensive understanding as students advance through the grammar, logic and rhetoric stages.
