A Culture of Collaboration

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

We Work Together to Create High School Access

Together with families, we work to ensure Classical alumni earn acceptance into the competitive high school of their choice. To see a list of the high schools our alumni attend around the city, click here

To achieve this goal, we start the conversation with families early. Starting in 5th grade, our 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. We also work with families to choose schools based on scholars’ interests and help them navigate the application process by tracking deadlines, reviewing applications, and coordinating teacher recommendations. 

Where scholars choose to attend high school has a massive impact on their future opportunities. At Classical, we’re committed to ensuring all alumni leave on a path that will lead them to their goals.

Academic Support & Special Education

Classical is committed to supporting all scholars and our model ensures scholars receive the support they need. 

Classical Charter Schools teaches to the student and gives individual attention to each student and challenges they may have.

I appreciate the curriculum; in a short two months my son was able to read. Overall, it’s been great so far.
