“We seek to establish our children in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. Using pedagogical terms, we educate them in grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric. They should be brought to know the truth, understand the good, and attain wisdom in that which is lovely.” – Douglas Wilson – Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning
Grammar school at Claremore Christian School includes grades 1 – 6 and helps to provide a solid foundation of knowledge for future studies. Students will learn basic facts of arithmetic, reading and writing through intelligently selected classical Christian curriculum.
The grammar school years are an exceptional time to expose students to ideas and vocabulary in a joyful and interactive environment. Students will memorize Scripture, retell historical events, participate in grammar chants, recite Latin verb endings, and read from great literature. These foundation years will help build their Christian character alongside an enthusiasm for learning!
