The School of Rhetoric’s primary objective is cultivating students’ abilities to articulate the integrated knowledge they have acquired clearly and persuasively and to apply the knowledge wisely and purposefully in various life situations based on the biblical worldview.
The senior year culminates in Senior Thesis, where students demonstrate a broad knowledge of related subjects by presenting and defending their 20-minute topically controversial speech before a panel of judges. A thesis presentation is required for a diploma.
The school year is divided into two semesters, with comprehensive examinations at the end of each term. There are seven class periods each day from 7:50 a.m. until 2:40 p.m. While no advanced coursework is specifically available in the School of Rhetoric, many of our classes like Calculus and Rhetoric II, are considerably more advanced compared to standard classes in the US. Therefore, it would be appropriate to call these “Honors” level classes.
