High School (Rhetoric)

Rhetoric: Clearly expressing grammar and logic components in each subject

The culmination of classical education is to intentionally and extensively practice the expression of the knowledge and understanding that has been gained in earlier years. Teachers help students hone their communicative skills and challenge their assumptions in order to promote further consideration. Students learn to engage, both in verbal and written form, in discussions that are both edifying to society and glorifying to God.

Abiding Savior Academy offers the only full-time Classical Christian educational approach in Sioux Falls and surrounding communities. At its core, Classical Christian Education (CCE) trains students to be life-long learners who reason clearly, think critically, and speak eloquently.

Each of our classes are centered on the principle that God is the Creator of all that exists, and therefore all knowledge is interrelated and ultimately points back to Him. Biblical standards of conduct are applied in all areas of classroom life, acknowledging that Jesus Christ is Lord of all. A pastoral Bible instructor teaches Bible classes.

Our smaller class sizes (relative to other nearby school options) allow for our teachers to work more closely with students individually. This school environment also offers greater interaction with students from different grades, through which students learn in unique ways from each other.
