College Preparatory with Honors Classes
The SGCA high school program exists to cultivate wisdom and virtue in its students in order for them to become leaders and light bearers. We encourage students to live out a Biblical worldview. By means of the liberal arts of dialectic and rhetoric, we prepare students to think well, reason well, and persuade convincingly for the glory of God.

Rhetoric School Leadership Program
The development of leadership/collaborative skills, and mentoring opportunities for high school students. Our leadership program is a special opportunity within SGCA for those students who are academic achievers with high integrity. Students will receive mentoring, leadership training classes, service hours/opportunities, mentoring for younger students, and encouragement throughout the school year from their Advisor. We call these special leaders our Senatores Solae Gratiae!
- Students will need to remain in good academic standing, and must maintain an B+ average or higher to remain a Senator.
- Students should demonstrate a high standard of behavior when on and off campus, refraining from getting into any situations that would require documented disciplinary action.
- Each Senator serves throughout the community on a daily basis from greeting younger students as they come in from carpool to serving as judges for Science Fair! Plenty of opportunities to be leaders are given to Senatores per semester.
- Friday Leadership Training curriculum for Senatores only, led by an Advisor
- Committee choices such as Justice, Spirit or Yearbook to be a part of with assigned Advisors
- Mentoring from your Committee Advisor
- Service hours and certificate at year end
- Special Senatores only social outings
