The Classical Curriculum of the Classical Liberal Arts Academy
St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) established “Scholastic Philosophy” in the 13th century.

In classical Philosophy, we use the arts of Grammar and Reasoning to investigate three subjects: Physics, Ethics and Metaphysics, as explained in the Curriculum Overview. In the Classical Liberal Arts Academy, we offer courses in each of these, studying the works of Aristotle with the guidance of the commentaries of St. Thomas Aquinas.

In addition to these, we offer a number of related courses intended to help younger students prepare for classical Philosophy studies, such as Aesop’s Fables, Pliny’s Natural History and Theophrastus’ Characters. To extend philosophical studies beyond Aristotle, we also offer courses on the works of Plato and the Stoics. 

All available courses are listed below.
