DIALECTIC

a classical foundation

The Dialectic Stage begins with a natural desire to make order out of chaos. At the Classical School, the Dialectic Stage is generally equivalent to grades 5 through 8. This includes a deeper look at history, literature, Bible studies, Logic, Latin, English grammar, and worldview studies.
