The culmination of classical learning occurs in the rhetoric stage. Scholars work their way into advanced studies emphasizing critical-reasoning skills and stylistic expression. Seeking to instill a desire for contemplation and an appreciation for learning, faculty attempt to convey the relationship between the philosophical and practical aspects of life. Scholars are required to develop, deliver, and defend at least one thesis paper before peers, faculty, and parents their senior year, as well as present a classic text in Latin and English their junior year.

Many studies and experiences have proven that most students need to take the test at least three times to get the highest goal for the best scholarships - some take it four. The first test has many mental distractions and is seldom the highest: new school, new room, new proctor, new test. The highest score for EACH SUBJECT goes on the transcript to colleges, so we recommend setting the score goal and pursuing it relentlessly.
