Liberal Arts Curriculum

All of our live, on-line Liberal Arts Curriculum classes are designed to offer the heart of a classical education integrated into a single course.  Taught in the spirit of Orthodox Christianity through a Charlotte Mason style pedagogy, the courses span seven levels, each on a two-year rotation, for a total of 14 years of unique material.  Classes meet four days per week, and class sizes are limited so that interactions within the classroom stay personal.
