What is Christian Classical Education

What is Classical Christian Education?

Our Classical Education Model

At Trinity Christian School, we are classical in methodology, which is structured around the three stages of learning known as the Trivium: the Grammar Stage, the Logic Stage, and the Rhetoric Stage.

Grammar Stage

In the Grammar Stage, kindergarten through 6th grade, students focus on acquiring foundational knowledge in core subjects such as language arts, mathematics, history, and science. Through memorization, songs, and rhymes, students develop a solid framework of facts and vocabulary that will serve as the building blocks for deeper understanding in later stages.

Logic Stage

As students progress to the Logic Stage, grades 7th through 8th, they learn to think critically and analytically. They explore the relationships between different subjects and begin to ask probing questions, seeking to understand the underlying principles and connections that govern the world around them. Students engage in formal logic, argumentation, and debate, honing their ability to reason soundly and articulate their thoughts effectively.

Rhetoric Stage

In the Rhetoric Stage, grades 9th through 12th, students refine their communication skills and learn to express themselves eloquently and persuasively. They study classical texts, analyze complex ideas, and develop their own voice through writing and public speaking. By crafting well-reasoned arguments and presentations, students become confident communicators and leaders who can engage meaningfully with the world.
