Fully Integrated

The Cambridge curriculum is intentionally integrated both vertically and horizontally.


As students get older, scaffolded concepts are built upon and nuanced while we work against a compartmentalized view of truth. Students daily engage with a host of interconnected ideas across the curriculum to prepare them for the complexity of discourse beyond the walls of our school. Beyond the traditional curriculum, Cambridge endeavors to socially integrate students across grade levels and foster the relationship they have with their teachers. This manifold approach to integration is an outworking of the integrative marriage of classical pedagogy with Christian thought.

History as the Backbone


Classical education at Cambridge uses history — from ancients to moderns — as its organizing theme. Other subject areas/disciplines are linked to history.

Related math and science topics could include a discussion of prolific Greek mathematician Archimedes’ inventions.

While history is the backbone of a Classical education, no core subject is neglected. In fact, among classical schools in San Diego, The Cambridge School offers the most diverse and integrated curriculum including mandarin, music, art, Latin, PE, history, science, reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, logic, and rhetoric and more….

Community


Cambridge endeavors to socially integrate students across grade levels and foster the relationship they have with their teachers. Teachers see their roles as more than mere dispensers of information. Our "Living Curriculum" teachers relate to students as mentors, embracing the master apprentice relationship.

Students are given ample opportunities to engage and serve each other, across grade levels. Buddy programs, peer tutoring, Ministerium days, and the House System offer students a chance to learn from one another and strengthen the school community.
