RHETORIC

NINTH THROUGH TWELFTH GRADE

In the study of rhetoric, students learn how to express what they know and what they are learning. Debate, apologetics, speech, essay writing, and drama are emphasized during this stage as a means to equip students as effective communicators. Students are challenged and trained to implement a Biblical worldview by engaging the culture for Christ. The rhetoric stage is built on a foundation of accumulated knowledge and is the capstone of the Trivium.
