Our School Levels
L.E.A.D. Academy consists of Lower, Middle, and Upper School.
Grammar, which involves the memorization of basic facts about a subject, is taught to younger children who naturally love to chant, recite, and memorize. Students learn how to acquire, store, and recall information, training their brains how to operate efficiently for a lifetime of use.
Logic teaches children how to integrate facts into a coherent system that reflects biblical truth. Students explore cause and effect, why things happened instead of just what happened, and to use logic to solve problems. This is taught in the middle school years and matches well with the development of the child.
The final phase of classical education is the rhetoric stage. It builds on the first two. At this point, students learn to write and speak persuasively using originality. Students learn to use the facts and logic from the first two stages to create intelligent dialogue. Our goal is to have taught students to be bold enough to speak truth and live righteously.
