What level class should my child take?

Grades 3 - 5
(Grammar Stage)

The stage where children are building foundational knowledge. Students often think in concrete terms, repetition and memorization. Vocabulary and word lists are valuable weapons!


Grades 6 - 8
(Dialectic Stage)

The stage where students begin to ask questions and compare and contrast to understand how knowledge relates to other knowledge. Theme-based writing is a powerful tool at this level.


Grades 9 - 12
(Rhetoric Stage)

The stage when foundational knowledge and critical thinking skills have armed students to engage in reasoned debates, persuasive writing and literary analysis.
