Levels 2 and 3 students will learn to write using the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) and analyze literature with Socratic-style discussion following the “Teaching the Classics” model. They will take history lessons, poetry recitation training, and theological studies, including virtue studies, expansions on the catechism and the lives of the saints. They will have the opportunity to memorize facts about 8 different disciplines, one of which is a song with 144 events or persons in chronological order with motions that they will perform at the end of the year showcase for parents. They get all this plus:
