Classical Christian education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue through the meditation on the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. This is accomplished through training in the liberal arts, and through a familiarity with the great books and the great thinkers of the Western Tradition. A classical education transmits the inheritance of the Christian Western civilization to our children. Familiarity with the Greeks, the Romans, and the Bible is essential to understanding our culture and prepares students for success academically and throughout life.
Highlands Latin Cottage Schools are homeschool support programs that meet weekly. Group instruction is provided in the classroom on Mondays with parents providing individual, focused direction throughout the remainder of week. Class sizes are small to increase participation, and ensure a high level of attention is granted each student.
Lessons are incremental, content is age-appropriate, and students learn the important skill of quality written work completed in a timely manner. The Cottage School classroom is consistent with human nature and the experience of many decades has demonstrated its superiority over the modern child-centered classroom.
