Secondary Program:

Once students have utilized the Grammar stage to amass a body of knowledge, the Logic stage can begin around the 7th Grade.  During this stage, the students learn to utilize logic to analyze information.  This is a shift from concrete information to the analysis of information.  Through this analysis, students can begin to relate the facts they have learned to one another in significant ways.  Additionally, they learn to use the scientific method and other tools to objectively analyze information to determine what is fact.

The final stage is Rhetoric, and begins around the 10th grade.  During this stage, the students build further upon their knowledge and logic reasoning skills by learning the science of communication and the art of expression.  The Rhetoric stage teaches students how to express what they now understand in the most compelling manner possible.  Through this, "hard" sciences and mathematics are further mastered, history can be applied to economics and political science, the Bible study can turn into apologetics.
