Given the fledgling nature of many of our programs, it is often difficult to know if we are heading in the right direction and making the right decisions. We want to retain students throughout the rhetoric years and see whole classes graduate, not just the few who “stick with it.” Hear the journey of Geneva School of Boerne, how they planned and implemented their rhetoric school program and saw the fruit of a successful first graduating class.
