Life long learners - that is one of the goals of classical Christian education and Regents School of Charlottesville. As a school, we hope to inspire our students, our faculty and also our families to be life long learners, to seek truth, to dig a little deeper into that science concept or literary element, to ask, "Why is the sky blue?" or "What inspired an orphaned J.S. Bach to create such magnificent pieces of music?"
The 2016-2017 school year is our seventh year of operation. We are excited to open this school year with nearly 150 students in kindergarten through twelfth grades. We offer a classical curriculum of literature, writing, grammar, science, math, history, and Bible as well as Latin, logic, rhetoric, PE, art, and music.
"At Regents, phonograms are an integral part of our curriculum because they are the foundation of reading and spelling. First grade students enjoy learning seventy-two phonograms along with motions and key words. In addition to reading, students use phonograms to learn the relationships among sounds, letters, words, and sentences. As I introduce spelling words, we consider the specific phonograms being studied in those particular words so that the students see them in context. Students love to learn the phonograms and are overjoyed when they are able to point them out as we read sentences from history, science, and literature!"
