Curriculum

The classical education trivium (literally “three roads”) begins in the grammar phase, typically Kindergarten through Fourth Grade (our Lower School).

Grammar Phase: The grammar years provide the building blocks of the classical foundation. Information and memorization is taught through songs, rhymes, and poetry.

Logic or Dialectic Phase: In the Logic phase, usually Fifth through Eighth Grades, students begin to think critically about the facts they have learned and are able to apply knowledge, historical context, and fine points of logic. In the Seventh and Eighth Grades, special emphasis is placed on the development of oratory skills.

Rhetoric Phase: In the rhetoric phase, students develop exceptional writing and oratory abilities. The Geneva School of Manhattan offers Preschool through Eighth Grade, giving students an expansive and impressive knowledge base to carry them through their high school years.

Classical education has worked best for centuries because it corresponds to the way in which young minds develop. It delivers an extensive knowledge base to students which gives them the confidence to excel in any field that they choose.

In each grade, students are assessed individually so that teachers may:

  • Develop customized homework to further challenge students
  • Create individual assignments and classroom projects to encourage student curiosity
  • Enrich the school day through various in-class and afterschool activities that support their unique talents and provide opportunities for personal growth

Beginning in 2009, Geneva School transitioned to using Singapore Math as its mathematics curriculum, making it one of the first schools in the city to do so. Singapore Math is widely known around the world for producing superior math test scores; it teaches fewer subjects with the goal of completion, versus the spiral approach of other math programs. Furthermore, it adapts well to gifted and talented students, allowing them to delve deeper into mathematical studies instead of reviewing and learning in the more lateral math methodology.

Mission Statement

The Geneva School of Manhattan exists to provide a time-proven classical education within a biblical worldview. We inspire students to love learning, pursue excellence, and become leaders in scholarship, virtue, and faith.
