School of Logic

School of Logic

The Logic Stage (5th-8th grade) is the second level of the classical Trivium. In this stage, the student’s natural inclination to argue is directed towards productive and good ends. Through such things as the Socratic method, debate, and the study of logic, students are taught to discern truth.

Logic students continue to expand their written responses through enhanced essays and written products; by constructing and evaluating arguments; by comparing and contrasting events in the Bible and history, as well as in works of literature; by employing mathematical reasoning; by recognizing cause and effect; and by thinking scientifically.

Students travel a significant journey through the School of Logic from the start of fifth grade through the end of eighth grade. A noted amount of maturation occurs emotionally, developmentally, physically, and academically over this span of years.
