Philosophy of the 3 Schools

Grammar: K — 6th Grade
Every academic subject has its own grammar—the basic building blocks and facts that must be learned. At the grammar stage a child’s mind is a lot like a sponge, and memorization comes easily and enjoyably.

Logic: 7th — 8th Grade
In the junior high years, we emphasize connections and interrelations. We study the why and how of each subject. The study of formal logic (fallacies and syllogisms) comes here, and the art of debate begins to emerge.

Rhetoric: 9th — 12th Grade
High school students are interested in presenting themselves well, so we take advantage of this stage by teaching them how to express their ideas most effectively—through beautiful, respectful, creative, and persuasive speech and writing.
