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.

Our students are dedicated to a system of beliefs held throughout the school that holds them to the highest standard of values.

One initiative that I am excited about here that helps prepare for students for college is our new AP program. Students in AP classes have the opportunity to undertake collegiate level study and even earn credits for their work with the AP exam at the end of the year. It is a great way for students to familiarize themselves with the high standards and rigor of higher education.
