History & Staff


Our History

The New Classical Academy was founded in 2006 by Kate Hyde and Kelly Homolka, educators who had a vision for bringing the benefits that their own children drew from homeschooling -- internal motivation, imaginative play, multi-age collaboration, individualized work flow, hands-on learning, extended outdoor time, and fun -- into a more structured classroom setting shaped by the principles of classical education.

Since that time, The New Classical Academy has moved locations, grown in size, expanded academic and extracurricular programs, and adjusted curriculum to meet the ever-changing needs of our students. But the core values and beliefs upon which we were founded remain the same, and we continue to strive to graduate thinkers armed with the tools required for meaningful participation in their community, their lives, and their world.
