Super Scholar and Truth, Goodness, and Beauty Incentive

Super Scholar

Super Scholar is an incentive for our grammar students to learn all of the memory work.  Awards will be given to those who have successfully memorized each subject area. Students may choose all or one or more subjects to work toward.

Parents will work with their student at home and confirm they are ready to be evaluated at year’s end. The Director/Coordinator Team will quiz the student with just the parent present. (Parents are there for support and witness but must remain quiet.) The Director will randomly quiz the child with the beginning portion of the memory work or asking about a topic.

For example:

Director:  “Tell me about the area of a rectangle.”

Student:  “The area of a rectangle equals length times width.”

Director:  “Finish this statement: The Civil Rights movement started in…” and the child will respond with the entire history statement.​ OR Tell me about the Civil Rights Movement.”

Once the Director is satisfied the child indeed has achieved the award, achievements and prizes will be celebrated and awarded at our Year End Showcase!

Truth, Goodness, and Beauty Incentive

CSH introduces scholars to Saints, Art, and Composers/Music that follow along with the timeline of each Tour.  Scholars who know 1-2 facts about any or all of the fine arts subjects can achieve this award, achievements and prizes will be celebrated and awarded at our Year End Showcase!  This is more conversational with the tester.  For Saints and art the scholars will identify a picture and tell the tester a few things they find interesting about the subject.  The Composer/Music testing will include the picture of composer (or instrument) and also listening to the piece.  Again the scholar will identify and then tell a few tidbits of information about the composer.
