Logic

Logic (7-8)

 

Schaeffer Academy follows the Trivium, a method of instruction first used in medieval times. Its three stages (Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric) correspond to a child's developmental stages. By the middle years (grades 7-8), building on the facts and rules gained in the grammar stage, our students progress to learning logic, defined as the rational use of concepts within the content of a subject. In addition, the students have room in their schedule for two electives.

Here are the core subjects studied in grades 7 and 8:
