Why Classical?

What sets Classical apart from other schools? In a nutshell - our entire philosophy! We believe in educating the whole child. Our students participate in a rigorous liberal arts curriculum, great sports, a Nationally recognized theatre program, and an award winning music program. We also offer fantastic technology and art courses to round out our elective offerings! We are devoted to creating creative thinkers, problem solvers, and communicaters who are ready to tackle college and the job market! We are also one of the only magnet schools in the state with NEASC accreditation, which recognized our rigorous curriculum and is the educational seal of approval from the regional governing body of schools.

At Classical our graduation rate is 98.5% - 14 points higher than the state average - with a 97.6% college acceptance rate - 15 points higher than the state average! At Classical our students graduate and go to four year colleges. We have an 88% 4-year college attendance rate (those students who attend after getting in) with a 94% college perseverence rate (our alumni graduating college). Both of these numbers are well above the State average and almost all other magnet schools as well!

Last year we sent 2 students to Yale and this year one of our seniors, Shay, was accepted to 6 Ivy league schools! Additionally, several other students were accepted to Ivy league schools this year. Our liberal arts, Paideia curriculum and focus on the a well rounded education that also includes the arts and sports sets up our students for success in life.
