10 Key Characteristics of a Classical School

Hill Pointe, as a classical school, has committed to upholding and embracing the following 10 key characteristics:

  • The Western Tradition is at the center as the children study history, literature, philosophy, and the fine arts.

  • There is a rich and recurring examination of the American literary, moral, political, and historical traditions.

  • We use explicit phonics instruction leading to reading fluency and use explicit grammar instruction leading to mastery of the English language.

  • We teach Latin, beginning with the study of Latin and Greek roots in grades 3-5, and Latin language in 6th grade.

  • We acknowledge objective standards of truth, logic, and beauty intrinsic to the liberal arts.

  • We establish a school culture demanding moral virtue, discipline and decorum, and studiousness among the students and faculty.

  • We deliver a curriculum that is content-rich, balanced and strong across the four core disciplines of math, science, literature, and history.

  • Our faculty comprises well-educated and articulate teachers who convey real knowledge using traditional teaching methods rather than student-centered learning methods.

  • We aim to be a school that uses technology effectively, not extensively, without diminishing the faculty leadership that is crucial to academic achievement.

  • We are a school with a plan to serve grades K through 12, beginning with K-5 in Sept 2023 and adding one additional grade each year until we reach grade 12.

We appreciate your support and look forward to announcing exciting news in the coming months.
