A classically educated student is taught according to the Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric), which emphasizes that as children develop cognitively, they learn differently. Young children love to memorize and learn facts. During their elementary years, students learn the grammar of each subject. Middle school students are inquisitive, so we teach logic to develop their ability to reason and discern truth. In high school, students develop a deeper sense of how they are perceived by others. Therefore, an emphasis is placed on rhetoric where students learn to write and present their ideas persuasively.
