Trivium, Philosophy, and Theology
The "three ways" or Trivium of classical education are the language arts of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Grammar is the study of the parts and pieces of language; logic is the art of correct reasoning; rhetoric is the art of "speaking well," adding the perfections of beauty to the truths of language. Grammar is studied, formally, in our Latin program; here you find Logic and Rhetoric in years I and II. In the third course, students use these tools to study nature and man. With an understanding of man they consider how man knows God and God's law in man (Course IV). Finally, the sequence finishes its ascent by considering what God reveals to man that exceeds his natural faculties (Course V).
"I purchased Alpha Year last summer for my first grader, and we have so thoroughly enjoyed the program. My 2 and a half year old son even loves it! He loves to recite the poetry and the history. What really astonished me, however, was his ability to apply the information he learned from the songs. I was talking to my husband about our history lesson, and I mentioned 'the king of Persia' and he shouted, 'that's King Cyrus!' " Camille in California
