What is a Classically-Oriented Charter School?

Beginning in wonder, classical education nurtures the intellectual, moral, aesthetic, and physical capacities of students with a rich and ordered course of study, grounded in the traditional seven liberal arts and leading through language, literature, history, mathematics, natural sciences, fine arts, and philosophy. Premised on the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty, classical education aspires to transmit our inherited cultural endowment of wisdom and excellence to successive generations, thus cultivating virtuous neighbors and citizens.*

A charter school is a public school operating within a public school district. A contract with the local board of education allows a charter school to operate free from specified district policies and state regulations thereby allowing more flexible and innovative ways of educating children.

The classical approach to education can be described as a journey to meaning. It begins with students acquiring knowledge through a wide familiarity with literature, history, science, math, music, arts, people, and places. Liberty’s purpose is to lead young people on an odyssey of the mind and heart, which will steer them towards self-reliance.
