Torchlight takes a distinctively secular Socratic-inspired approach with Humanist underpinnings. Torchlight supports the Golden Rule, kindness, exploration, questioning, and scientific thinking. A worldly approach full of logic, equality, and empathy. Equality is one of the tenets we venture to exhibit throughout this curriculum.
Eclectic In Nature
Torchlight is an eclectic curriculum. We include hands-on learning, game-schooling, car-schooling options, direct-linked media, and extra bedtime story recommendations into our curriculum to spread out the learning and make it a lifestyle.
Pantomime Poetry is a Torchlight original(included in levels 1+) developed based on cross-body movement studies showing kids were more engaged and had far better memory retention when making movements over the middle and center lines of the body. With or without the science, moving is fun!
Weaving Learning Into Your Life Instead of Weaving Life Around Your Learning
We encourage our families to break up their learning and use everyday opportunities to integrate the learning within our pages. One way to accomplish this is to take advantage of our daily or weekly commutes to run errands and attend activities.
