School of Logic:

The School of Logic, which is comprised of 7th through 9th grade, meets on campus five days a week. During the Logic school years, students and the methods of teaching build upon the foundation gained in Grammar School.  Socratic teaching is implemented to a higher degree and Logic is introduced in a more formal way. Beginning the use of discussion and debate does not change the expectations of order, peace, courtesy, and enthusiasm of that in the Grammar School, but rather students are encouraged to challenge one another in a manner that utilizes these qualities.
