The Higher Studies Division covers a period of four years, comprising grades eleventh and twelfth.
Its object is to broaden and deepen the classical knowledge gained in the Lower Studies Division. There is an emphasis on communication of truth and persuasion and on mental and moral philosophy. The subject-matter of these years is of vital importance for the candidates of the learned professions, because it contains the general philosophical principles upon which the specifically professional branches are based.
This sequence of studies is to serve as a guide for what a student may take during grades eleven through twelve. Options for electives vary from year-to-year.
