Grammar School Curriculum Overview

Kalos Christian Academy is enrolling kindergarten through sixth grade for the 2023 – 2024 school year. During these younger years of a child’s education, we focus on the gathering of facts and the mastery of the tools of learning like phonics, arithmetic, narration, and more.

This time is called the grammar stage in the trivium and lays the foundation for the logic stage. Kalos Christian Academy aims to open secondary (seventh through twelfth grade) enrollment in the fall of 2024.

Some secondary courses will be offered a la carte, and they will be posted as they become available for the 2023 -2024 school year.

Kansas City Kalos Christian Academy's Grammar School Curriculum Overview, Classical Education

The [Grammar] stage is the one in which learning by heart is easy and, on the whole, pleasurable; whereas reasoning is difficult and, on the whole, little relished. At this age, one readily memorizes the shapes and appearances of things; one likes to recite the number-plates of cars; one rejoices in the chanting of rhymes and the rumble and thunder of unintelligible polysyllables; one enjoys the mere accumulation of things.
