Refining Persuasive Speech and Writing, 9th -12th Grade
The educational philosophy of The Habersham School involves an integrated approach, where meaning and purpose
underpin every aspect, leaving students to discover the joy of learning and the virtue of hard work.
The Rhetoric School years yield a thoughtful conviction on an ever-deepening body of knowledge. Students graduate the Rhetoric School with the ability to eloquently, yet humbly, articulate the truths learned in their pursuit of classical education. Articulation is learned and perfected with students presenting public speeches, writing persuasive essays, gathering ’round the Harkness table, studying Rhetoric and Theology, and, lastly, creating and defending their Senior Thesis.
