Curriculum

Academic Program The Cambridge School of Dallas seeks to address both the heart and the mind, equipping students to influence and actively engage their culture and the world through challenging academic standards and high spiritual expectations. Cambridge seeks to maximize the potential of average to above-average students by placing them in an above-average curriculum founded upon an emphasis on the disciplines of the classical trivium—grammar, logic, and rhetoric. The grammar stage is not a reference merely to early language, but more broadly to the basics of every subject. Similarly, logic is not merely a subject or course unto itself but is the discipline of thinking well about any and all subjects. Finally, rhetoric refers to the formulation and communication of a subject, any subject, in a manner that demonstrates careful understanding and application.

In order to accomplish the school’s aims, the curriculum must be integrated universally. Each course within a particular subject is designed to build upon the previous, and our commitment to universal truth ensures that each discipline builds upon the others, so that upper level science is dependent upon earlier theology or literature courses in addition to earlier science courses. These demands demonstrate the importance of a classical, integrated structure and pedagogy. In a similar fashion, a distinctly Christian approach requires the integration of subject and faith at virtually every turn in the learning process. It goes without saying that the earlier students are immersed in this educational approach, the more likely they are to thrive and reach their full potential. Cambridge’s academic program culminates in Advanced Placement [AP] courses in core and elective disciplines, which may be accepted for college credit. All upper school students take four required AP courses in English and history and have the option to take other AP courses as student interest and enrollment permit. Each AP course must meet the College Board’s curriculum guidelines and standards and use college level textbooks and materials. It follows naturally from Cambridge’s mission as a college preparatory school with a rigorous curriculum that AP courses would be required and offered both to challenge the students academically and to prepare them for future studies. In addition, students are required 2015-16 Cambridge Curriculum Guide, page 2 v.6.0 to take four years of theology and complete a senior tutorial, a course which requires them to present and defend a thesis before a faculty panel.
