The Logic Years
Logic is all about asking "what do we think about?" and "how do we think correctly?"
What we think about: As students enter the Logic Stage, they begin to shift away from chants and memorization to discussion and argumentation. Students are taught to think about all things pertaining to truth, goodness, beauty. With the introduction of Logic as a discipline, the overarching goal of the Logic Curriculum at Covenant Academy is to prepare our students to take every thought captive to Christ, as Paul recounts in 2 Corinthians 10.
"We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ...” 2 Cor. 10:5 (ESV)
Thinking Correctly: during the Logic School years, Covenant students will be taught how to articulate what is good, true, and beautiful about each area of study. They will employ Logic as a tool in every class, whether that be through the exposing of fallacies or the presentation of arguments. The goal in all classes is to instill a love for order, respectful argumentation, and discussion.

Logic School Courses of Study
*Note: High School course work that is reflected on the high school transcript. Students are still completing their Logic course of study while at the same time being introduced to the high school Great Books program. 9th grade at Covenant is a transition grade from Logic to Rhetoric. Students receive high school credit as they continue to develop requisite logic and rhetoric skills.
