Elementary Program:

As outlined in the Trivium, the elementary education portion of OCA is centered on what is known as Grammar.  During this stage, the students utilize memorization to gather and store information on multiple subjects into a body of knowledge.

The young mind is a sponge for information, and we utilize basic memorization techniques to teach students information on a variety of subjects - Math, Science, Geography, History, Music, English, Latin, and most importantly the Bible.

Once a body of knowledge has been gathered and arranged under the rules of general grammar, can now be subjected to logic for full understanding.
