We have a broad and purposeful view of education. We do much more than teach the subject areas. We are preparing our students to be virtuous, intelligent citizens who lead in a constitutional democracy. We believe in pursuing truth, goodness, and beauty, so that we might gain a deeper understanding of the world and live life more authentically. We believe in the classical structure of liberal education.
Imagine: a nation that was conceived as a city on a hill to shine for all the world to see. Imagine: eleven score and three years ago, our forefathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Imagine: this nation one generation from now, who in turn passes on for generations to come, not only the ideals and principles, but also the wherewithal for a more perfect union, with truer justice, with widespread domestic tranquility, with a more invulnerable common defense, with a deeper sense of personal and national well-being, and with the blessings of liberty more securely intact.
We do not necessarily channel our students into the political arena nor into the military field nor any particular career. It does not matter whether our students are butchers or bakers or candlestick makers. What matters is that we help equip them in how to live… as intelligent and virtuous citizens who lead.
