Rhetoric School

 

The rhetoric school at Trinity Classical School comprises ninth to twelfth grade. After studying and mastering the disciplines of grammar and logic, students spend their last four years of their classical education prepared to focus on expression. 

One of the most valuable tools in our modern world is not simply knowing information, but to be able to synthesize information and then communicate it in a winsome and compelling manner.  A classical education focuses on equipping young people to communicate with others effectively. In addition, students study the great books of the Western tradition, as they learn from authors whose words and ideas have transformed cultures and history. Learning from these cultural giants, they begin at a young age to cultivate their own voice.
