(1) The Latin course is divided in two parts:
 – A spoken Latin course based on the Orberg and Assimil methods (CD made by the pupils). The learning of both spoken and living Latin facilitates the understanding of the language and makes the literature more accessible.
 – The Latin grammar course is along traditional lines.

(2) The mathematics course follows the 'mathematics 6 hours a week' course, which covers the learning of traditional and modern maths.

(3) The history courses follow the timeline: Egypt, Greece and Mesopotamia in the first year; Rome in the second year; Middle Ages (in Latin) in the third year; Modern Era in the fourth year; Contemporary Era in the fifth year.

(4) The studients are grouped by level instead of classes. The most advanced have a course in Dutch (aardrijkskunde-Geography ; kunstgeschiedenis-Art history)
