The School of Rhetoric

The School of Rhetoric includes grades 9 through 12. With minds full of knowledge and the ability to logically organize that knowledge into meaningful arguments, students in the rhetoric stage of classical education are prepared to focus on expression. The School of Rhetoric teaches students to artfully express themselves in both written and spoken form. Additionally, students think, discuss, and reflect upon the virtues, ethics, and wisdom to be found as they study each subject.
Students are now on campus five days a week, following a true university schedule with some classes meeting two days per week and others meeting three days per week (all core courses meet 3hr/week). Students are also able to select from a broad variety of electives intended to expose them to potential future occupations or hobbies to be enjoyed.
