Grammar Workshop
trains students in basic grammar skills. Supplementing your grammar program at home, Grammar Workshop reinforces basic areas of grammar, including parts of speech and punctuation. We will use review and editing activities that help students master this important language that we use to talk about language. Students receive small take-home assignments for additional reinforcement.

Why study grammar?
"Grammar is important because it is the language that makes it possible for us to talk about language. Grammar names the types of words and word groups that make up sentences not only in English but in any language. . .

Look & Listen
How do students learn to truly appreciate music, art, and poetry? By looking and listening – by attending – to good music, art, and poetry. “The first demand any work of art makes upon us,” C.S. Lewis says, “is surrender. Look. Listen. Receive. Get yourself out of the way.” This skill takes practice to develop. Just as a trainer guides an athlete’s progress in physical skills, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic teacher can guide students into a lifelong love and appreciation of music, art, and poetry.
