Kingswood Academy offers a rigorous, classically-based education rooted in the Catholic faith.  We focus on educating the whole person. We teach each child the value of respect, responsibility, reverence, and independence. We provide a safe and encouraging environment where children can share, explore, question, and develop a love for learning.

Classically Based Education:

    • Teaches students how to reason and think critically
    • Exposes children to the greatest minds in Western thought and literature, resulting in well-rounded and culturally literate students
    • Teaches history chronologically
    • Emphasizes instruction through written and spoken words instead of through pictures and videos


The classical method of education has its roots in ancient Greece and Rome. By the 16th century, it was being used throughout the Western world, and it remained the norm until at least 1850. And the main reason for its widespread use?  It works. Many of the world’s greatest authors, saints, statesmen, scientists, and politicians were classically educated.

For the last 50 years, conventional education has experimented with a variety of methods, retaining some while abandoning others as attitudes toward education shift. Much of modern education is so eclectic that the student has little opportunity to make connections between past events and the flood of current information.

In the 1940s, Dorothy Sayers advocated a return to classical education, and to teaching students how to think, instead of teaching to the latest fad. Classical education is a return to a system proven effective for well over 1,000 years.
