In a classical education, students first memorise the vocabulary of a subject. The Foundations program teaches students how to memorise anything, giving them the tools necessary for future learning. The material selected for memory practice is from the Challenge program, so that students go into a formal study of a subject already knowing the basic grammar for that subject. For example, when Challenge students begin to read their physical science textbooks or to study history, they understand the material easily because they have already memorised many of the important terms, names, and dates.
