The Rhetoric School

The Rhetoric School is the third and final stage of the Trivium. It is our high school.


The Rhetoric School focuses on the written and verbal art of communication that incorporates both grammar and logic. The purpose of rhetoric is to direct the soul to truth. We challenge students to contemplate great books and art, to express difficult mathematical and scientific concepts, and to wrestle with truths about human nature and virtue. We do all of this with one end in mind – to pursue what it means to be an authentic human being.

In addition to our rigorous academics, we offer athletics, music, drama, and other co-curricular opportunities. 

Rhetoric School teachers spend time outside our classrooms and learning spaces tutoring students and serving as advisors. Through these relationships and through the knowledge, skills, and insights they have acquired and honed during their time at Veritas, students graduate ready to thrive in college while meeting the ultimate mission: to glorify God by equipping students with the tools necessary to pursue a lifetime of learning so that they may discern, reason and defend truth in service to our Lord, Jesus Christ.
