Highlands Latin Cottage School Greenville aims to pass on the heritage of the Christian West to the modern student. We are CHRISTIAN, CLASSICAL, and TRADITIONAL.
Highlands Latin Cottage School Greenville follows the traditional school calendar, mid-August through May.
Our faith statement is the Apostle’s Creed, the most ancient and widely accepted expression of the essential beliefs of the Christian faith. Highlands Latin Cottage School Greenville teaches and upholds traditional Christian morality, and the Holy Scriptures as the divinely inspired word of God.
The intensive study of Latin in the grammar school years develops the minds of students as no other subject can. Students who have learned how to learn with Latin become better students in all other subjects. The study of classical languages and Greek and Roman classics provides a path to wisdom and knowledge that cannot be attained by any other method. In the tradition of the western civilization, education and classical education have always been synonymous.
Although schools have tried many experimental innovations during the last century, none have been able to duplicate the success of the traditional classroom. In the traditional classroom, a knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher carefully leads students into an understanding of each subject. Classrooms are quiet, orderly, and disciplined. Lessons are incremental, content is age-appropriate, and the students learn the important skill of quality written work in a timely manner. Homework is moderate and is for the purpose of practicing or preparing for a lesson. The traditional classroom is consistent with human nature and the experience of many decades has demonstrated its superiority over the modern child centered classroom.
