“Man may not be the colossus some secular spirits would have him be, armed with the strength and wisdom of the gods, but he has partaken of ambrosia. He has squinted through the veil and seen just enough of divinity to measure himself by it. The Humanist knows both the strengths and the frailties of man. He strives. But he knows the bounds of his striving.......
Visions and ideals need a path, a way, a roadmap people can use as to arrive at those better, more permanent things that the wise are always seeing dimly whenever they strained their eyes. So man turned a mirror on himself, looked soberly, and-one day-began to write accounts of the discoveries made on the grandest odyssey of them all: the journey to the core of the human mind and soul. The grateful among us read them.”

All students will take music theory & choir, that will emphasize tho to read music and how to engage in an ensemble vocal performance.
If you don't have a great voice, do not worry! It will still be fun because you'll learn how to read music, tablature, composition and classical music appreciation
AND... it won't be boring. Although you'll learn about classical music, performance selections will include current and relatable music.
YES! You will perform in the winter and spring showcase! you might even find that you enjoy being a star...
Summit Homeschool Academy is a classical academic collaborative. For the upper grades, courses are delivered in a university style. Students are given instruction 1 day a week, and parents support homework. Depending on the level of focus, skillset and independent working ability of the student, parent support varies. (In homeschool, parents are the primary teachers and are responsible for the academic success of their child. If a student needs additional support, we can help by providing recommendations for tutoring and other learning resources.)
Annual Materials Fee $100/student
