8TH GRADE

Our full-year tuition includes 5 full-year courses. Feedback from parents, students, and teachers indicates that this workload achieves a balance of academic rigor while leaving time for outside activities. It is possible to add additional courses for an additional charge, but we strongly encourage students to take no more than five courses.

    Designed in a language arts format, grammar, composition, and literature are integrated into one course. Students continue the study of advanced grammar that forms the basis of literacy, primarily through composition, with writing being considered a process calling for repeated, multi-layered revisions. Course readings that feature the study of European authors improve comprehension skills while strengthening the writing and intellectual skills necessary for success in high school.

    • Prerequisites
    SYLLABUS  
    An exploration of the foundational language for understanding Western culture, the study of Latin strengthens mental dexterity, sharpens focus, and dramatically expands understanding of English vocabulary and spelling. Training in Latin declensions and conjugations continues as students gain knowledge of the origins of the English language and its grammatical structure while experiencing the Roman culture through language. The grammar-first approach is presented systematically in order to facilitate retention and understanding, rather than to facilitate translation.
