Elementary Division Introduction

This outline may help answer some questions you have regarding our classical elementary school program. There are two main differences between a “traditional” program and what we offer at TCA, addressing the how and what of education. To understand how lessons are taught one needs to look at how the Lord made each and every one of us. We believe that young children were created to naturally absorb information. Memorization and the dissection of words and their sounds are enjoyable and come easily to this age group. TCA’s elementary curriculum continues to instruct in the basics of math, spelling, and grammar, but the real difference lies in the execution of the content. Chanting and fun memorization drills are used constantly to take advantage of the student’s innate ability to take in a multitude of facts, figures, and sounds.

Latin is a singular field of study that addresses what is unique to our elementary curriculum. Instruction begins in the third grade and continues through fifth grade. By introducing children to the language at an early age, we take advantage of their vast capacity for learning vocabulary and their love for rhythmic chanting. Latin is taught for its development of analytical skills, for ease in learning foreign languages and as an aid for understanding English grammar and vocabulary.
