The Portico Education Foundation is a non-profit corporation made up of local public school educators, parents, and community volunteers who believe in offering families a choice in public school education.  Our goal is to grow community interest and support for the Trivium Academy - a proposed charter school serving Collin and Denton Counties. We plan to open as a K-8 school and eventually expand to K-12. Trivium Academy will offer students a classical education for the modern world. Classical education is a three part process of training the mind. Initially, students will ENGAGE in learning content and facts, laying foundations for more advanced learning. Next they learn to EXAMINE information from a critical viewpoint and develop arguments. And finally, students will be able to EXPRESS their ideas and opinion to the world.  That's what we call the three E's, based on the art of teaching by the trivium. Our students will be able to learn, think, and communicate with increasing sophistication each year. This will be achieved by assessing our students' strengths, weaknesses, learning styles, and interests in order to prepare an individualized learning program that fits their needs. Our teachers will educate the whole child, resulting in well-rounded students who are prepared to challenge the world.
