At Belton Preparatory Academy, we are often asked what makes our tuition-free K5 & 2-7 charter school unique – and why a Classical Education is important. The short answer is that we prepare our students for success – in high school and beyond. How do we do that? Here are five ways!

1. Classical Education puts fundamentals first. 

Belton Prep students go “back to basics”when it comes to core learning. We teach the fundamentals of reading, writing and math, encouraging critical thinking and creativity. We also offer a comprehensive art and music curriculum – one of the finest in our area.


2. Classical Education builds a foundation of knowledge. 

Our K5-7 sequential, Core Knowledge curriculum builds on the Classical Education stages of Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric. Our students connect cross-curriculum topics through deep exploration and questioning and hands-on learning. Our graduates leave here prepared to succeed in high-level high school academics.

3. Classical Education develops character. 

We teach moral values by spending time each day on character building activities. Our Core Virtues program focuses on a different life principle every week, discussing core virtues and the principles in the student code of conduct. 


4. Classical Education students excel. 

Belton Prep students’ test scores are some of the highest in the state, and our school is recognized as a leader in effective and engaged education. Our academically rigorous curriculum challenges students and our supportive school culture celebrates their achievements. 


5. Classical Education is for life. 

We are proud of our ability to build a foundation for lifelong learning in our students – teaching them to make informed choices through critical thinking and effective communication. We are inspiring today’s learners to become productive citizens who will grow up to benefit our society.


Classical Education lays a solid foundation for success in high school and beyond. Are you interested in learning more about how classical education can be a fit for your child? Contact us and enroll in our tuition-free charter school today!
