English Studies Classes
Our English Studies incorporate grammar, composition, literary analysis, and poetry. The composition portion of the class is based on classical methodology, including an emphasis on the progymnasmata (progym) and literature-based lessons. Materials are from Cottage Press. Please note that for Bards & Poets and up, grammar instruction and assignments are based on the assumption that students are studying Latin concurrently. We require all students (6 th grade and older) to be concurrently enrolled in Latin at Providence Prep. Latin grammar and English grammar reinforce one another in a way that produces superior understanding and mastery of principles and concepts. Please note that there is a tuition charge for high school English Studies (Logic & Rhetoric, Poetics & Progym I, II, and III) because the teachers of these classes will provide evaluation of compositions and accountability for weekly written exercises.
