Upper School Profile 2020–2021

Mission

The Geneva School seeks to provide students in grades K4–12 an extraordinary education, by means of an integrated curriculum, pedagogy, and culture, both distinctly classical and distinctively Christian, that pursues goodness, truth, and beauty in all spheres of life, while viewing these spheres as elements of a divinely ordered whole. Further, Geneva seeks to instill in students a desire to love beauty, think deeply, and pursue Christ’s calling.

Accreditation & Membership

The Geneva School is accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools, is a charter member of The Association of Classical & Christian Schools, and is also a member of the Society for Classical Learning.

School & Community

The Geneva School, established in 1993, is a coeducational, college-preparatory day school with a K4–12 student body of 535 (229 in grades 7–12). The lower school campus is located in Winter Park and the upper school campus is located in Casselberry, both in suburban Orlando.

Faculty

The Geneva School seeks master teachers who have a passion for learning and who have advanced educational credentials and experience. Of the 35 faculty serving the upper school, 36 are degreed and one is a professional photographer with an AS and 15 years of experience; 20 have earned one or more master’s degrees; and 5 have undertaken or earned their doctorate.

Admission

Admission to The Geneva School is selective. The admission committee’s evaluation of each applicant is based on academic records, teacher recommendations, standardized test scores, pre-admission assessments, and student interviews. The Geneva School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.

Rhetoric and Christian Thought (with Senior Thesis)

Rhetoric is both the power of seeing the available means of persuasion in any given situation and the art of leading souls. As Christians, we have a responsibility to think, speak, and act in ways that lead to human flourishing, that are faithful to Scripture and the historic Christian tradition, and that promote the kingdom of God. The aim of this four-year sequence of courses is for students to understand and practice the art of rhetoric in a way that emphasizes the skills and habits of reasoning well and speaking well in light of the Christian faith. These courses culminate in the Senior Thesis project, in which students compose an original, persuasive argument on a topic of contemporary significance, deliver that argument orally in the form of a classical oration, and defend it before faculty, peers, and community.
