In 6th-8th grade, scholars at Classical Prep expand on the skills and knowledge developed during the grammar years through learning to analyze causal connections and relationships between facts in all content courses. Teachers challenge scholars during classrooms discussion to participate in inquiry and debate. This is why all middle school courses are honors-level. Rather than merely learning the facts in history, literature, arts, or science classes, scholars must think logically about the content they study. Writing assignments are assessed for style and quality of argumentation. Scholars learn to synthesize information across subject areas, beginning to look beyond their own narrow world and recognize and understand the viewpoints of others both past and present.
