Rolling Acres School’s curriculumRAS-Logo-200px reflects the classical and medieval model of the trivium and quadrivium, as well as the traditions, old and new, of great books discussion, and the belief that, to broaden Newman’s statement, “to be deep in history” is necessary to understand Christ and His Church.  As such, students are guided through an integrated educational program that includes elements of each approach.  Students develop a true understanding of nature, man, and history in which the incarnate Christ is the beginning, the middle and the end.  Our modus docendi (“way of teaching”) is really a modus intellegendi (“way of understanding”), focused upon those things which are true, beautiful, and good.
