Students develop strong math understanding through Singapore Math, with a heavy emphasis on word problems. In Science, students learn through hands-on curiosity how our world works, applying their knowledge and defending their premises in high school science.
In every grade and every course, Ad Fontes students develop their thinking and communication skills. Students actively engage in classes, participating and leading discussion with use of Socratic and Harkness methods in the Upper School. Students take a full year logic course in 8th grade to understand the foundations of valid argument. Ad Fontes is distinguished from other Christian schools in Northern Virginia because we offer separate writing and speaking courses throughout the curriculum, in concert with intensive written and oral speaking assignments.
