Transformational Classical Model
Dr. Susan Goers has witnessed the decline in American education, traditional American values, and the acceptance of mediocrity amongst the nation’s young adults. It became her passion and desire to be a part of a movement that would radically transform and inspire America’s youth, and assist in developing the leaders of tomorrow by instilling the precepts of wisdom, service and honor. Embedded in her model are traditions of classical education, Latin, Logic and Rhetoric, Communications, the Bible in History and Literature, speech and debate, and the Constitution. Scholars also understand and practice core virtues such as responsibility, friendship, wonder, prudence, courage, moderation, excellence, and justice. The Transformational Classical Model© joins instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue with a rigorous curriculum, thereby restoring scholars to traditional American virtues and liberty.
Through proper education, America’s young adults can be equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge to revive their nation that was founded on conservative principles of capitalism, empowered liberty, limited government, and American virtues. Dr. Goers and her team will not cease to ensure that America’s youth are educated and equipped to be excellent citizens for generations to come.
If your vision and desire is to see America restored to its founding principles of liberty, justice and freedom, then join Dr. Goers in transforming America’s young adults. As the next leaders of this great nation, now is the time to invest in their futures. Now is the time to commit to helping educate scholars in their responsibilities as American citizens. Now is the time to commit to empowering today’s youth to be the leaders the nation needs in the future. Restore America and make it great again, by committing to educate, empower and equip America’s young adults to become the next virtuous and conservative generation.
Scholars in this model are educated in the precepts of a true and thorough classical education. Scholars study the beginnings of western civilization, the importance of the Greeks and their contributions to Society as well as the relationship between the Greek and Roman civilizations and the founding of America. All scholars will be educated in the written and spoken word with classical curriculum in classroom settings. Rhetoric, Constitution, Logic, and Bible classes round out the classical curriculum. Throughout the learning process a scholar is expected to advocate for themselves and their education. Any concepts that are not fully understood need to be brought to the attention of the mentor by the scholar.
The Transformational Classical Model © employs this rigorous curriculum to master standards, while empowering scholars to build their knowledge base in such a way as to become a profitable member of society by being a critical thinker and to discover his or her God given gifts and talents. Scholars are expected to take personal and academic risks to understand and challenge their own personal abilities. The Grammar, Logic, and Rhetorical stages of the trivium and quadrivium are preserved through the study of classical literature, cursive writing, and unadulterated history.
Finally in the Transformational Classical Model ©, the family plays a vital role in being successful due to their being the primary educators of their children in the home. To support this element, the TCM© incorporates a no homework policy, employing only simple practice for the elementary foundations, training scholars to work an eight hour day and produce product during that time. After academy hours are dedicated to family enrichment and activity.
Incorporating schole, a ten minute journaling in the morning and the afternoon to solidify learning for scholars allows them to share at home with family. The term “schole” is actually where we get our word “school” . It means to think in a leisurely way. It allows the mind to relax and process information that you have gained without rushing to the next subject. Schole time is essential to fully digesting a day of learning.
