Please view our website for detailed information about our mission, structure, curricula, and more: www.theMGA.org.
Students are divided into Grammar stage, K-5th; Logic stage, 6th-8th; and Rhetoric stage, 9th-12th. These levels guide both the content and the teaching methods of our classes. More detail on this classical approach to education is on our website.
Our classes take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 3:10 pm for all levels, and on Mondays and Wednesdays for Logic 3, Rhetoric 1 and Rhetoric 2. Learning remains home-centered, but the child has group learning experiences and peer interaction in our classes. We study together the core subjects of World History, Literature and Language Arts, Science, and Math.
We have a wonderfully convenient location, central to Keller, Southlake, Ft. Worth, Roanoke, Watauga, Colleyville, and North Richland Hills. We support families by:
- offering teaching support to parents;
- providing a class environment for students;
- offering the flexibility of more time at home;
- providing accountability and structure for students.
The interview process will help us and you know whether MGA is appropriate for your child and what level is best. Because of our small class sizes, our policy of partnering WITH parents, and our dedicated teachers, we are able to welcome students who need adaptations from the 'traditional' classroom environment. MGA is an inclusive learning community, welcoming children with a variety of learning styles, capacities, and diagnoses. If a student is able to participate appropriately in a class environment and benefit from it, we are happy to include them in MGA. Our students include those who are traditional learners in typical styles; those who have learning challenges, and those who are considered 'gifted and talented.' We have a wide variety and want to maintain that broad spectrum in our learning community.
Students, parents, and teachers commit to emulating Christ in their conduct, their conversation, and their efforts. Students sign a Code of Conduct that delineates our expectations for classroom behavior, and are expected to abide by it. Parents are provided a Parent Partnership Statement that outlines our expectations for completion of homework assignments necessary to profitable group discussion and interactive learning. We are partners in educating our and your children, and clearly defined expectations are foundational to success in this venture.
We limit class sizes to 18 students per class. The Humanities studies (World History/ Literature) rely heavily upon discussion, with the students preparing by reading, researching, and writing outside of class. Science is lab- and activity-based. Math classes are a combination of lecture and time for students to work problems. In every class, our commitment is to provide worthwhile learning activities in support of your child's education.
