The Department of English is designed to develop and strengthen each Cadet’s skills in communication. Curriculum focus is on composition, grammar, and literature. SAT preparation is integrated into the curriculum. Beginning with 7th grade English and continuing through Advanced English, students are given a solid foundation of grammar as applied to written and oral expression. They are guided through studies of literature and taught to appreciate reading material. They learn about human reactions and ethics through literature. They are taught to express themselves fluently through creative writing and oral interpretation.
“If words are to enter men’s minds and bear fruit, they must be the right words shaped cunningly to pass men’s defenses and explode silently and effectually within their minds.”— J.B. Phillips \ English Bible scholar, translator, author and clergyman
