6th – 12th Grade
At Alpha Omega we believe in teaching our students according to their growing developmental stages. In the secondary school, we focus on dialectic or logic (6th-9th grades) and rhetoric (10th-12th grades).
In the dialectic years students learn argumentation, logical fallacies, and debate. Students at this age love to disagree, so logic is a great way for them to learn to hone those skills appropriately and apply those skills to each of their subject areas.
Rhetoric students are solidifying their worldviews and beliefs and are concerned with expressing those views. Classes at this level train students to not only say what they believe but defend their beliefs. Our students are also taught that while it is exciting to win an argument, it is more important to winsomely persuade others. Of course, all of this is within the convictions of the Christian worldview.
Arguing and defending the truth of God is an honorable task. We want to produce students who are morally grounded and biblically motivated to stand for God’s truth in the public square, in the work place, in the home, and in the church.
