The upper school maintains the emphasis on logic by introducing the students to a rigorous college-preparatory program dedicated to challenging the students to creatively solve problems, make distinctions, and write insightfully. The Quadrivium is added to their classical curriculum through deeper study of natural science, mathematics, music and Euclidean geometry. Finally, juniors and seniors demonstrate rhetorical skills by carefully considering, artfully writing and successfully defending a self-selected philosophical thesis topic. Consequently, seniors are prepared to enter college or pursue a career with poise.
