Classical & Christian Approach
Regents' academic guiding principles are two-fold: to integrate God's word into the curriculum and to capitalize on the Western liberal arts tradition. Students gain Christian wisdom and training in classical eloquence, uniquely equipping them for leadership in the modern world. To create this environment our students learn in ways that best fit their cognitive and developmental needs. The classical structure provides a sequence of content and skills in keeping with a student's natural ability to absorb facts, to analyze concepts, and to express themselves as they synthesize their accumulated knowledge and understanding.
The first three of the seven traditional Liberal Arts, known collectively as the trivium, are Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric. Each is a set of content and skills utilized to produce thoughtful and articulate students. Our school divisions derive their names from these arts, and the teaching styles reflect the nature of the skills which are emphasized in each:
