Who we are…

Sola Gratia Classical Academy Inc. (SGCA) is the Triangle’s Premier Hybrid Homeschooling Community that employs the content of a classical curriculum and the pedagogy of intentional learning embodied by the word scholé. The word scholé (pronounced skoh-LAY) comes from a Greek word that in it’s ancient context was the diligent and purposeful development of the mind, body and soul of a student.  Our mission is to pursue deep engagement that results in enjoyable, permanent learning.

We strive for excellence in the classical tradition!
