In the rhetoric stage, students are engaged with the great minds of the past. Classic literature is our core; complementary subjects (such as history and Latin) are also covered. With an emphasis on critical thinking, students communicate the truths they’ve acquired in these subjects and learn to express their thoughts effectively and articulately.

TEACHERS

 
  Lindy Gordon   Lindy graduated from the University of Florida in 2003 with a major in English and a minor in History. Since then, she's rarely stopped reading or studying; the way she sees it, teaching has given her an excellent excuse to do both. Currently, Lindy is pursuing her instructor certification with the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW), and continues to edit part-time. She has been teaching high school classes since 2012. Lindy is also on the winsome, wonderful journey of homeschooling her own two curious children.
