Curriculum

We Are Classical

What is classical education? Definitively, classical education is proven scholastic methodologies and curricula (i.e., courses of study) which concentrate on teaching a core body of knowledge (i.e., art, geography, history, language, literature, mathematics, music, religion, and science) as well as the literacy skills of reading and writing. Furthermore, there is significant emphasis on the development of learning skills (i.e., study, inquiry, research, and discovery) which shape the abilities to question, think, reason and decide. In addition, much emphasis is placed on grammar, logic and rhetoric.

Grammar: The beginning fundamental rules of each subject – grades K-6.

Logic: The ordered relationship of particulars in each subject – grades 7-10.

Rhetoric: How the grammar and logic of each subject may clearly be explained – grades 10-12.

Moreover, classical education is an environment of hard-work, challenge, testing, evaluation, feedback, setbacks, rewards, and achievement. It is an environment which strengthens interpersonal relationships as well as personal skills and abilities. It shapes values, character, and confidence.

Finally, classical education provides the necessary academic, intellectual and spiritual resources for higher learning and career development. Most important, it provides the foundation and resources for life as well as a lifetime of learning with an emphasis on a Bilblical world and life view.

Curriculum

The curriculum is chosen by the school committee with much prayer and research. In keeping with Midway’s high academic standards, curriculum is evaluated for academic soundness and Biblical Worldview.

  • Presentation of God’s truth in all areas of instruction and learning.
  • Develop a Biblical worldview.
  • Equip young people to be Biblical Christians living in a secular world able to give an answer for the hope that is within them.
  • Recognition that parents have the primary responsibility in training their children and Midway is acting on their behalf as an extension of the home.
  • Recognition that we are bearers of a sinful nature and are due appropriate discipline. (“Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him.” Prov. 22:15)
  • Recognition that as fallen man our inclination is to seek the road of least resistance; therefore, we must challenge and stretch students by encouraging them to strive for excellence, take responsibility for their actions, to persevere even in the face of a difficult task.
  • Because we are in the image of God, we must always do our best in all that we do.
  • Recognition that as bearers of the image of God we must treat on another with respect, acknowledging that “whatever we do to the least of these my brothers you do unto me.”
