School Notes

  • The New Classical Academy offers a classical education in a nurturing, individualized learning environment. Our school graduates polite, enthusiastic, thoughtful young men and women who are strong readers, adept mathematicians, skilled writers, and leaders with an extensive working knowledge of history, science,geography, and the arts.
  • Our philosophy encompasses cooperative, multi-age learning, as well as independent, self-directed study. The school is alive with real science experiments, dramatic presentations, debates, art projects, music, classic literature, and manipulative math.
  • As our educational philosophy recognizes that children need time for both work and play, child-directed imaginative play andoutdoor playare a substantial part of every day at our school.
  • The New Classical Academy curriculum combines individualized progression through thebasics--reading, arithmetic and mathematics, and handwriting--with a rotating school-widecourse of studyin the sciences, history, and literature. As students gain mastery of the more mechanical aspects of scholarship, they are able to manage increasingly advanced presentation and exploration of the material.
  • The classical concept of the trivium guides our presentation of the material we teach, giving students first the knowledge, then the understanding, and finally the creativity to approach each subject in the fullest way. In this way, we make knowledge attainable to all students, regardless of their learning differences.

School Reviews

TNCA has been the perfect place for our boys. The morning block of learning time teaches kids to focus and the large amount of outside time keeps them able to learn. The curriculum is tailored to each child so that everyone is challenged. Learning with kids in other grades teaches respect and kindness. The teachers love the kids - and the families!
