Summer has arrived and your children are home with nothing to do. As a favor to your kids, enlist their help with household chores—they will benefit greatly. Giving children household chores at an early age helps to build a lasting sense of mastery, responsibility and self-reliance with many benefits academically, emotionally and professionally.
Aristotle famously stated that rhetoric is “an ability, in each particular case, to see the available means of persuasion.” In other words, rhetoric is about finding all communicative options in a given situation and carefully choosing effective tools that will most likely persuade your audience.
If your student enjoyed the workout during recess with Coach Jonny, then they will love the summer camp with the experts at Pros on the Rope. Your child will be active and move through different stations and will be given multiple activities learned and played each day.
Liberty parent and coach, Trey Thompson, will be covering the principles of attacking, defending and possession on the field. The camp will focus on individual ball skills and games to develop those skills. There is also a high focus on attitude and character as we become better players.

If you read last week’s blog about the senior thesis, you saw that our students put the kind of work into their final semester that many colleges don’t require of their upperclassmen.

Families choose Liberty Classical for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s a safe environment. For others, it’s the private school level of personal attention. For some, it’s about being Christian. For some, it’s classical education. For most, it’s a combination of these. There’s a lot that goes into education at Liberty.
Our open houses are hands-down the best way to get to know us. Meet teachers, parents and students. Ask questions and view curriculum.
We were recently blessed to have Liberty Classical Academy alumnus Ben Leone share about his life and activity since graduation from Liberty in 2009.
