Can a student begin participating in Challenge IV seminars without previous Challenge experience?

9 August 2021

Yes, a student can begin with Challenge IV, but we encourage you to consider carefully before making this decision. Remember that classical education does not follow the modern paradigm of Reception to Upper Sixth, but instead considers the child’s grasp of fundamental skills of learning. If your child does not have a background in the liberal arts, it may be better to start him at an earlier level (such as Challenge II or III). If your child is going to begin in Challenge IV, be aware that this year of study may be tougher for your student than for others who have completed the previous Challenge levels. Your student may have to spend more time studying the basics than his peers do, and he may need more parental guidance and encouragement than he would otherwise.
