Although children ask “why,” from a very young age, at a certain point their “why” takes on a new character.
Middle school children start challenging opinions and facts and seeking evidence. Dialogue with great thinkers and training in charitable argument are essential as students use their own thinking skills to present and understand both sound and unsound arguments.
Our curriculum encourages students to think through more challenging ideas and concepts so that they can capitalize on the natural desire to develop argumentative skills. Clarity of thought, presentation of textual and scientific evidence, and careful analysis of arguments lay a solid foundation for knowing, loving and serving God.
