The entirety of a student’s education while at St. Johns Classical Academy points to the Senior Thesis. The Senior Thesis is a 25 page dissertation in which the student will have to defend the philosophical question based on their studies at SJCA. Nothing prepares students for college or for the responsibilities of citizenship better than having at least a tentative answer to a question which must be defended through Socratic debate and academic pedagogy.
In order to graduate with a St. Johns Classical Academy degree, seniors must complete a Thesis under the supervision of a faculty advisor.
Students will complete a 25-page paper and defend the thesis before the faculty, other students, and members of a panel in a 1-hour presentation and question period.
