Spring 2021 Colloquia
What is Colloquia?

Colloquia are small discussion groups, offered frequently throughout the year that add another level to our academic challenge. Each colloquium studies one book, epic poem, piece of music, art, or topic, so that the focus is limited and “bite-sized.” It has only a handful of students to allow for intimate discussions of the topic. Each colloquium is offered by a mentor and is based on a work he or she loves. The colloquium meets outside the normal classroom and centers on discussion of the great elements of the piece. While students must prepare for the meetings and are expected to participate, there are no tests or grades … only a love of what can be learned for its own sake.
COLLOQUIA QUICK FACTS:
  • Open to students in the School of Rhetoric (high school) 
  • Seniors have first choice enrollment
  • Small group discussion format
  • No grades or tests 
  • Students must complete a certain number of Colloqui points depending on their diploma track

What students receive from a colloquium is proportional to their desire for truth, goodness, and beauty, and their willingness to build relationships with the mentor and the work. We have found that in this nontraditional setting, the student often gains a greater appreciation for the mentor, and the mentor for the student, and both gain a greater love for the truth they discover together.
