School Overview

Classical prepares students for acceptance into competitive colleges and universities. Students participate in a rigorous liberal arts curriculum rooted in a study of the classics while embracing the common elements of the human experience found in other cultures.
The instructional model is based on the Paideia philosophy of education, which believes that human beings are primarily defined by their capacity and desire for learning. Students demonstrate a mastery of academics and actively participate in Paideia-based, coached project learning. Students are expected to demonstrate their ability to read and comprehend literature, write persuasively, think clearly, communicate effectively and solve problems. In addition to five core subjects, students choose from electives in Theatre, Music, Visual Arts and Physical Education. They model good citizenship and interpersonal skills through the completion of service learning and demonstration of the school’s core values of Dignitas, Gravitas, Pietas. Students are part of a community where they are learning not just for school, but for life.

School Report Card – the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has prepared this report, which includes information about student enrollment, student achievement, student and teacher diversity, and much more.
