Welcome to Classical Writing


Classical Writing is a writing curriculum for beginners all the way through high school. Our method is based on the ancient Greek  progymnasmata, a set of exercises that come from a writing tradition which has produced many of the best thinkers, authors, and statesmen of the past two thousand years. We believe, along with the ancients, that training in writing cannot be separated from training in virtue. Our aim is to teach students the art of putting virtuous thoughts into words — true, beautiful, and persuasive words.
