Our Classical Approach

Our Classical Approach

Hickory Christian Academy embraces Classical Christian Education as a return to a time-honored approach to learning. We believe the classical method is best for students as it focuses on how they naturally develop. Using the centuries-old method of education known as the Trivium, teaching methods are divided into the three major stages below:


K - 5th Grade

Grammar students are naturally inclined to memorize. The grammar stage capitalizes on that desire to memorize, recite, and chant.


6th - 8th Grade

The logic stage capitalizes on the student’s love of challenging ideas, debating and finding holes in communication.


9th - 12th Grade

Rhetoric students strive to express themselves. They are taught how to communicate clearly in written and verbal forms.
