Wisdom of the Ancients
in the Modern World
As a classical school, we align ourselves with the established wisdom of the ancients, particularly the cultures of Greece and Rome. We believe that many of the tenets of the ancient world still pertain to the issues of the modern world. Our students study the language, literature, and history of the ancients. We further believe that education is a training of character, and character is the intersection of intellectual development and moral integrity. We seek to develop each student’s ability to be thoughtful, consider the views and needs of others, and act with integrity.
Our curriculum is designed to inform, provoke and inspire our students.
So much of the talk in education now revolves around the notion of preparation. We are preparing students for standardized tests, for college, for citizenship, for their professional lives. While we acknowledge preparation as a worthy goal, we want our curriculum to do more than that.
