Upper School Parents, Carpool Needs your Help and Support – For morning carpool drop-off, please pull around to the back of the school as far as the traffic in front of you will allow. This expedites student drop-off and prevents traffic back-ups onto Old Apex Road. For afternoon pickup, if the 6-12 line is full of traffic, please circle around the school and line up in the inside lane of the outer loop. Traffic attendants will ensure you get in the line to pick up your student. During carpool times, please do not turn left out of campus onto Old Apex. 


The Iliad in 9th Grade – The story of the Iliad takes place during the ninth year of the mythical Trojan War. Tensions are high between the warriors and their leaders, which causes Achilleus, the greatest warrior, to argue with his commander-in-chief and abstain from the fighting. His absence leads to disaster, for the men and for Achilleus. Though Homer recorded the story over two thousand years ago, he wrestles with ideas that are deeply human. Because God’s truth is written on every human heart, Homer gets it right. Achilleus fails when he tries to glorify himself because he was created for the glory of another. Humans cannot bear that weight. Full of rage, he destroys himself and those he loves. The Iliad is a story that explores glory and shame, suffering and triumph, love and hate. Most of all, it culminates in reconciliation when Achilleus has the courage to humble himself. We will focus on the following themes:

    • Virtue and excellence, especially in battle; the hero code
    • Glory, honor, and shame
    • Hubris
    • Suffering and mortality
    • The devastation of war
    • The affects of anger and rage
    • Fate and divine intervention
    • Hospitality
