Q: How do you teach math, reading, and grammar if students go at their own pace?
A: Math, phonics, and grammar are taught in a general way covering a different concept each week. It will be new to some and review for others. Additionally, students are asked to bring in their grammar and math assignments and will be given time in class to work on it with help from the teacher as needed.

Q: What are the age requirements for starting 1st grade?
A: In order to join the lower grammar class, students need to be six years of age by August 15th of the current school year.

Q: Why use forms instead of individual grade levels?
Grouping kids together with a wider age range allows for less classrooms and less teachers. This helps keeps costs at a minimum. It gives the youngest students someone to look to as examples and older students a chance to lead. It also allows for larger groups of older students so they can have more robust discussions.

Q: What are living books?
A: “‘Living books are those that engage the reader (of any age), relay ideas, and are written in a lively style by someone with a passion for and great knowledge of the subject.”1
