The Dialectic (Logic) Stage: In junior high (7th and 8th grades), students, armed with facts and principles from the Grammar Stage, learn to reason and think logically through arguments. This is known as the Logic Stage in Classical Education. These students develop skills in logic and argument, preparing them for the next stage, the Rhetoric Stage. 

Junior High is full-time (Monday – Thursday, 8:30AM – 3:30PM; Friday, 8:30AM – 12:11PM).
