The mission of Classical Civitas is to serve and support homeschool families by facilitating classical Christian homeschool programs. Our members have access to community, classes, field trips, and educational development opportunities.
As part of a one-day-a-week community day that meets at Meadowcroft Presbyterian Church in West Chester PA, Classical Civitas hosts student classes on Wednesdays that are classical and diverse in nature and taught from a Biblical World View. Primary grades meet for 28 weeks while secondary grades meet for 30 weeks out of the school year. Being a true co-op, every parent has a role and participates in facilitating our community day. We follow a four-year learning cycle in history and science from PreK-12th allowing families to study topics together at home and scale across all ages. We also include the cycle memory work from Claritas Publishing in grades 1st-6th. Memory work is taught at home and then classes are used to extend their knowledge in a fun, creative, integrated, and meaningful way. A shared curriculum is used in some grade-specific classes offered from 3rd-6th. Tutors of these classes guide class discussions and activities as well as assign work for the week. As the lead teachers in their homeschool, parents support their students at home through accountability, scaling, and grading when needed. In 7th through 10th grade, every class is run this way with a shared curriculum guided by a tutor and parental support at home.
