In the Rhetoric Stage (9 - 12), students will develop their use of language, both written and spoken, to express their thoughts eloquently and persuasively. Students learn to express themselves well in writing and in speech. By the end of the Rhetoric Stage, our goal for students is to be well-rounded and godly young men and women who can articulate their faith.
Young adults in high school are very concerned with their appearance, both physically and socially. Therefore, we capitalize on this by improving their learned debate skills by teaching them to be persuasive. Through the Trivium, students are taught facts early, then taught to think logically and finally, trained to be persuasive by articulating arguments based in facts and logic.
