About Our School Program

The time-tested method of the Trivium gives students more than book knowledge. The Trivium is the pattern of education used in schools in the great liberal arts tradition. A classical education provides students with the tools for learning and makes them learners for life. Our education harkens back to the learning done by leaders such as Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and Jonathan Edwards. Our Grammar School (K-6) focuses on memorizing facts, mastering crucial skills like reading and mathematical ability, and exercising the memory. During the Logic years (7th-9th grades), our focus is on encouraging students to think logically, clearly, and critically about ideas. During the Rhetoric years (10th-12th grades), our focus shifts to presentation, persuasion, and effective communication. Our distinctive Omnibus curriculum combines history, theology and literature. The curriculum culminates with a 35-page Senior Thesis that is defended orally in front of a panel of experts in the subject matter of the thesis.
