How the Trivium meets
all student needs

About the Workshop

Truly excellent education should serve all.  The Trivium as the “stages of development” has too often led to rigor mortis rather than rigor.  A student that can’t memorize during the “grammar stage” repeats a grade and the advanced student is bored.  A student who struggles with logical reasoning can’t get past early secondary, and the advanced student is ready for more.  The “rhetoric” stage doesn’t “arrive” for the struggling learner and the advanced student is ready far earlier to develop rhetoric.  But, the Trivium, rightly understood, moves away from stages of development and instead develops the thinking skills that lead to discernment – meeting the student where they are at. All students, no matter their cognitive ability, are image bearers of the Triune God and as such should have this rich education.  Developing these crucial trivium skills in Christian students is excellent education and it truly serves all.

Meeting Dates and Times: Meeting on Wednesdays beginning September 14th, 4:00 PM PST
