This program can be described as “classical plus.” Elizabeth Fry and Tiffany McBryde teach students who are ready for a more rigorous, structured program. The focus in this program is learning how to be successful students. They practice self-management skills, writing skills, and reasoning skills, which will prepare them for KONOS Academy high school. The academic focus is world cultures — the history, art, geography, religion, traditions, and daily life. With each culture, students read related classics, do hands-on activities, and work together on challenging projects. Vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking lessons support the students’ reasoning and writing skills.
