LCS Middle School
In middle school, we focus our sixth through eighth grade students on learning how to think. Our rich curriculum and strong emphasis on Socratic teaching methods engages our students within the logic stage of our teaching philosophy, the Trivium. For example, while our students are engaged in seminars, debates, and speeches, our teachers are viewed more as guides, which allows our students to access parts of our curriculum on their own as opposed to just directly making statements to our students for them to memorize. Teaching in this fashion allows our middle school students to become more independent and to learn how to think for themselves based on reason.
For example, a teacher may introduce new material in such a way that our students have to figure it out on their own, by following a very detailed process setup by the teacher. Socratic teaching methods are excellent ways to instruct our middle school students because developmentally speaking, these students are ready to be part of the conversation. LCS capitalizes on young adolescents, who naturally like to argue, hold discussions, or state their opinions, which is a major reason why Socratic teaching methods, applied within the logic stage of the Trivium, are very successful in our middle school classrooms.

LCS thrives with the help of its dedicated volunteers! Whether you’re available during the school day or during evenings or weekends, we truly have something for everyone. Many of our volunteers enjoy contributing by way of car pools, morning forum, Watch D.O.G.S. and so many other opportunities.
Two of the 12 Core Virtues upon which our school is founded are Generosity and Service. Here at LCS, we take all of our Core Virtues to heart and are proud that these two virtues are so well demonstrated through the work of the LCS Cares team. Established immediately following the flooding in Loveland in September 2013, the LCS Cares team is composed of a group of staff members, who work to help those in the school community in need of assistance.
The Loveland Classical Schools Grandparents Club is run by grandparents with the purpose of staying in touch with other LCS grandparents, volunteering to help the school and engaging with your grandchildren, our students, in a more intentional way. Grandparents choose opportunities in which to participate.
