The Barney Charter School Initiative of Hillsdale College

Southeast Ohio Classical Academy is a Hillsdale College Candidate Member School. This means that SOCA is partnering with Barney Charter School Initiative (BSCI), a project of Hillsdale College whose aim is to facilitate the opening of classical charter schools in the U.S. Because SOCA has been accepted into this prestigious program, our school will utilize Hillsdale's time-tested classical curriculum. This curriculum includes things such as the reading of classical literature, the study of Latin, Singapore Mathematics, explicit phonics, integrated music and arts programs, and grammar and composition. You can read more about the curriculum here.
