High School Course & Sequence

​          In ninth through twelfth grade, students put together their acquired knowledge and skills in the creation and articulate expression of their own ideas and begin to formulate their own worldviews. This is the Rhetoric stage. Classical education is incomplete without the final phase of acquiring wisdom and developing the capacity for beauty and clarity of expression. Students take positions on issues and argue using cogent, articulate, and persuasive communication. Discussion and analysis of controversial and fundamental issues; and philosophies will continue, and students will be required to critically examine the assumptions and conclusions intrinsic to their own philosophies and those of the world around them.
