A True Partnership

Classical believes collaboration between staff and families is vital to scholars’ success. We believe that education can be liberating. We see it as the first step in becoming a citizen of impeccable character with a life full of choices. We strive to prepare our scholars for success, both at their next school and for the rest of their lives. 

Families play a critical role in our school community. Discover if Classical is the right fit for your scholar. Applications for the 2021-2022 academic year open in October.

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 Services

Classical is committed to supporting all scholars and our model ensures scholars receive the support they need. With the added supports we provide, we have a high success rate at ensuring all scholars, regardless of their individual needs, meet or excel grade-wide expectations. 

We offer a wide range of services including counseling, speech and language therapy, and occupational therapy and physical therapy. We also educate a large population of English Language Learners with support through our strong curriculum and intervention.

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