The Collegiate Model Rhetoric Program

The classical model of education culminates with the Rhetoric School. Covenant Classical School is launching a Collegiate Model high school program to serve families in Chicago’s western suburbs starting with 9th grade this fall! Collegiate Model high school programs (sometimes referred to as “University Model” or Collaborative Schools”) have been rapidly growing in number across America.

Academic Rigor

Our students explore the most masterful and influential creations of human thought. Great works of art and literature, groundbreaking ideas in science and philosophy, and pivotal movements in history and culture are examined thoughtfully, as our students learn how to take their places as thinkers and creators in the human cultural tradition.

Essential Habits

Our aim is to prepare graduates who accomplish success beyond academic achievements. By dedicating three days to traditional classroom instruction and two days to independent learning, we provide the optimal environment for students to practice and master the executive skills necessary for leading a life of purpose and impact.

Real Faith

The classical education model fosters deep engagement with complex concepts, encouraging students to grapple with challenging questions. Within this framework, exploration of ideas frequently intersects with matters of faith. Christian teachers are committed to supporting students on this journey, providing guidance and steadfastly upholding their Christian identity.

The Gift of Time

Our independent study days provide a platform for our diverse student body to tailor their time for unique individual needs. Students have the opportunity to delve deeper into their texts, prioritize self-care, and strengthen family bonds during these critical years before college. Our flexibility encourages holistic development, fostering a well-rounded and resilient foundation for the future.
