Upper School

Welcome to Merit Academy, home of the most amazing Upper School students and staff! 

Upper School consists of School of Logic (grades 6th -8th) and School of Rhetoric (high school: grades 9th-12th).

 

Today's adolescents are growing up in a world that many parents say is adverse to their family values, their principles of integrity, or their pursuit of healthy, independent thinkers. At Merit Academy, we understand the complications of finding the right school for your students. It is challenging to find a school that allows adolescents to mature within a classical model, without the confusing conceptions propagated within schools. Fortunately, families have found this educational home with Merit Academy. We embrace excellence for adolescents without pressures of controversial social curriculum.

Through our programs and expectations, we do not settle for status quo.

We emphasize character development through our core virtues.

We teach our students resilience and grit.

We have expectations of deadlines, responsibility, and productivity.

We value a mindset of "can-do", not one of blame, poor attitude, or victimhood.

We are, after all, Merit Academy.

 

Our goal is to partner with parents to prepare students to: be responsible citizens in this free society, promote civic responsibility, and contribute their talents in a flourishing republic as they pursue the beautiful, the true, and the good.

Our curriculum is rich and intensive, and students rise to the expectations of excellence in academics and conduct.

Here, we provide opportunities for post-secondary readiness in college, career, and military pathways.
