Middle School Introduction

The dialectic program for middle school students uses age-appropriate curriculum created to meet the needs of young men and women – a true middle school experience.  In this second stage of the Trivium, students try to understand the facts they have learned and begin to relate those facts to one another in a significant and meaningful way.  God created middle school students to question and debate. Their cognitive skills shift from the concrete to the analytical, where students question whether what they learned in grammar school is indeed true.  The truth holds up well under close examination, and only proves its nature by this process. Teaching Logic is thus critical at this stage of a student’s natural development. It gives them the right tools they need to question with precision and arrive at valid conclusions.

TCA’s middle school division is also quite unique in yet another way.  Our Homebase program, designed by our own faculty, complements the very nature of the dialectic stage. In this program, we continue to reinforce math facts, geography, spelling, and vocabulary through drills. Students are assigned to respective teams to compete against each other academically. Steady homework completes the Homebase program to equip our students better for the passage into their high school years.
