The preschool class is for children who will be 4-years-old by August 1st. Children who are 5-years-old and not yet starting kindergarten will also enjoy this class. They will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning Tuesday, September 3 from 8:15 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
In an era that seems to say, “we know better” and “let’s reinvent the wheel,” these parents have boldly embraced the old paths of teaching that seeks to impart knowledge, yes, but also teaches children to think deeply and exhibit great character by training the mind to think God’s thoughts after Him.
The question usually goes something like this: You seem to really know your stuff and the school is so small, why don’t you just homeschool your kids? An excellent question that I can’t wait to answer! I could homeschool my kids. I know I could do it, I know it can be a great choice for many families, I even think I could do it well. But there are a few key reasons my husband and I have intentionally chosen not to homeschool our kids.
Thursday evening I had the pleasure of attending an informal seminar at PCA hosted by our headmaster, Bill Izard. The topic was entitled Men of Valor, Women of Virtue and it was both simple and profound. The heart of the topic was about raising our children in such as way as to both model and thus instill in them a character that is in line with God’s ideal for us. In quintessential classical style, Mr. Izard encouraged us as parents and teachers to put great importance on growing our kids’ character and less on the career they may someday have.
Great job students of Pinnacle Classical Academy! It was a joy to listen to your songs of praise, to see your science lessons and book reports and to watch you smile as you enjoyed each other! I am proud of each and every one of you for your hard work!
Monday was a big day in Miss Claxton’s class. The 2nd and 3rd graders had been working on their big book reports for three weeks, choosing just the right book, reading it at home, writing out a report in their neatest handwriting, and creating a poster board visual to display during their presentation of the book.
Recitation night is when Pinnacle Classical Academy really shines. I have been to four Recitation Nights over the past two years and every one leaves me amazed at how much information our kids have learned in a short number of weeks. I am always proud of the confidence and professionalism of the students and faculty, while at the same time thrilled at the little smiles and giggles and wiggles that let me know they’re having fun at school.
Every parent has their own reasons for choosing their child’s school, these are simply mine. This is the first of several posts describing the major reasons why my husband and I chose Pinnacle Classical Academy for our kids’ education.
