Sundial Classical Farmstead
The home of supplemental instruction programs in Classical Education: Liberal Arts, Fine & Performing Arts, Practical Arts, and the Sciences.
Sundial Classical Arts & Sciences
This program is for home-schooling families seeking supplemental instruction for their children ages 5-12. It operates Monday-Thursday and follows the principles of Charlotte Mason, a 19th century English education reformer, who believed children learn best when their days are focused on a few key elements: good literature, lots of time outside, and exploring the arts in order to experience beauty, goodness, and truth in tangible ways.
Sundial Classical Arts & Trades
This program brings together local experts and students in highly experiential demonstration and application sessions. Our students learn by practicing the Practical Arts along with Fine & Performing Arts, that is: life skills, drama, music, drawing/painting, sculpture, hobbies, leisure sports, and skilled trades like agriculture, woodworking, architecture, stonemasonry, tailoring/weaving, metalworking, electronics, navigation, and cooking to name a few.
In essence this means “restful learning in the natural world.” We believe students learn better when they are given the time and space to be comfortable, curious, and actively engaged.
