We teach our students to think logically, read broadly, communicate eloquently, and appreciate artistic beauty.
Skilled Argument and Analysis
Authenticity and sincerity are not sufficient for truth. Students need to argue well with logical thinking and reasoning. Building strong arguments is emphasized through debates, speeches, Socratic discussions, and persuasive writing. Apologetics uses a debate method known as a disputatio that examines classic arguments for and against Christianity. Seniors propose a thesis in rhetoric class and use ethos, pathos, and logos to support their stance on a contemporary issue. While learning logical argument and research, students are thoroughly trained in scientific method and analysis. Math classes challenge students not only to execute procedures, but to understand underlying concepts and solve real-world problems.
