At Houston Classical, we believe in the Great Books such as Don Quixote by Cervantes, Iliad by Homer, Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, to understand society through the lens of great thinkers. We ensure curriculum includes socially relevant and responsive literature to expose our scholars to a wide variety of texts and perspectives. Through our books, scholars learn civics and participate in readings and conversations about civics and what makes up our society. This model trains young adults to think through different perspectives and understand multiple ideas that derive from one topic, one of the goals of a classical education.
