Calvary Christian Academy High School completes the Trivium: Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric. Students in our School of Rhetoric learn to speak eloquently and persuasively, putting into practice the tools of knowledge and understanding they acquired in the earlier stages. Through guided research and discovery, students learn to synthesize ideas, write and give persuasive presentations, and grow in leadership skills. Speech, discussions, and a biblical worldview are incorporated into every subject. Students continue to learn about the world through local, national, and global fieldtrips.
Our students are taught the Truth as their foundation, know how to recognized it in the midst of a relative culture, and defend and express the Truth to influence our culture for God’s glory just like a modern-day Daniel or Esther.
The senior thesis represents the culmination of a Calvary Christian Academy student’s education—a good person speaking well. This thesis is a twenty minute presentation, following by a challenging twenty minutes of question and answer on a controversial and scholarly topic. The senior thesis, delivered and defended after final exams in the spring, is a required component of CCA graduation. Each thesis should reflect critical thinking skills, in-depth research, excellence in presentation style, and an ability to communicate effectively both from a manuscript and in a give-and-take exchange.
