Character education at Classical  Charter Schools is core to our curriculum. In collaboration with parents, we teach scholars the value of six key character pillars.

Citizenship are the qualities of a responsible member of a community. Scholar-citizens take care of their classroom and neighborhoods.

Caring is showing kindness and concern for others. Caring people are compassionate and empathetic, even when it seems unfair.

Fairness is doing what is right and treating people in a way that does not favor some over others.

Responsibility is taking control of your life by owning your thoughts, words, and actions.

Respect means treating others in the same way you would want to be treated.

Trustworthiness is telling the truth, keeping promises, and being honest.

Classical Parents are Involved

Classical believes collaboration between staff and families is vital to the success of our scholars. There are many opportunities to stay involved throughout the year including, Parent Academy, Family Advisory Council, and various school events. 

Parent Academy

Parent Academy is a series of monthly workshops aimed to connect parents and staff to develop best practices for supporting our scholars. Parents with scholars in grades K-3 are required to attend. Sample Parent Academy workshops include: Advocating for Your Child’s Needs, Using Character Pillars to Shape Positive Behavior, Making the Most of Your Child’s Summer, Time Management, Family Book Clubs

High School Access

Starting in 5th grade, a dedicated high school advisor works one-on-one with scholars and their families to navigate the high school admissions process. We help families enroll in competitive preparatory programs around the city like Prep for Prep, Breakthrough, DREAM, TEAK, and ESPI, which provide tutoring, test prep, admissions assistance, financial aid, and campus visits. 

High school impacts scholars’ future opportunities. At Classical, we’re committed to ensuring all alumni leave on a path towards their goals. To see a list of the high schools our alumni attend around the city, click below. 

Special Education

Classical is committed to supporting all scholars regardless of their individual needs. We offer a wide range of services including counseling, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. We also educate a large population of English Language Learners.
