Senior Thesis

Thursday, May 23rd, 2024

Congratulations to the Class of 2024 for successfully defending their theses last week! All eleven seniors prepared 20 minute speechs, then answered questions from panelists for 15-20 minutes.

“The senior thesis is both summative and formative in the life of our students,” said Logic and Rhetoric School Principal Christopher Webb. “It brings together all the skills that we’ve been trying to pour into the students since the Grammar School: their ability to memorize large bits of information, to think logically and see the relationships between one thing and another, and to communicate that winsomely and persuasively.”

“The senior thesis is also formative. When we think about classical education, we’re trying to reorder our affections so we love the right things, in the right way, in the right order. The senior thesis forms who the students are just as much as they form something of which to persuade us.”
