RHETORIC SCHOOL

Grades 10-12

Students in grades 10‐12 make up our Rhetoric School student body. These final years of school are dedicated to continuing the Heritage Oak tradition of studying classic works, allowing students to engage with the great minds throughout history, pursuing academic excellence and personal spiritual growth as mentor teachers challenge students to apply logic to current event situations, wrestle with ethical dilemmas in society, and solidify their understanding and application of God’s Word in all areas of life.

The additional emphasis of preparing each individual student for God’s calling on their life is addressed through our unique Applied Theology and Apologetics classes, so that students are better equipped for life beyond graduation. All seniors present their final capstone thesis before a panel of judges who have an opportunity to challenge the thesis and give the student an opportunity to defend his position. This culminating event held in late Spring, presents the best of our students to the school and public audience.

Extra-curricular highlights of the Rhetoric School years include opportunities to serve as a House Captain or House Chaplain, serve on the House Council, participate in Protocol classes and events, missions trips, community service, debate, choir, drama, rocket club, cross-country and mountain biking.

See our Secondary Course of Study to access a list of all our courses in grades 7-12.

SPIRITUAL LIFE

Emphasis on spiritual growth for the student is the most important aspect of the Heritage Oak experience. It is our desire to provide an Biblically immersive experience where all the resources are provided for each individual heart to become passionate for Christ and to strengthen their mind through a deep understanding for the Truth; that each graduate would exemplify a joy filled relationship with Christ as their Lord and King.
