Distinctives

COPYBOOKS – permanently bound texts transcribed by the students. A copybook entry can be drawn from a beautifully written passage of Scripture, literature, poetry, primary source or lyric. They are the means by which ideas from a variety of living sources are digested and assimilated by the mind of the student. The purpose of these student-built texts is to train students in the habit of careful attention to details that make for finished and correct pieces that show a focused study of a given subject. Copybook entries document a breadth of experiences, texts, and media used to impart a topic of study. They give evidence of students’ best effort and proficiency in writing, drawing, and expressing ideas of a given study.
