Classical education for independent students

We hold small, discussion-based classes where students learn to ask good questions and think for themselves.

We focus on the Great Books and classics that form the basis of a classical liberal arts education.

We want to connect teachers with families to build alternatives to the regular school system.

What is education? Properly speaking, there is no such thing as education. Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another. Whatever the soul is like, it will have to be passed on somehow, consciously or unconsciously, and that transition may be called education. . . . What we need is to have a culture before we hand it down. In other words, it is a truth, however sad and strange, that we cannot give what we have not got, and cannot teach to other people what we do not know ourselves.

Without education, we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously.

Men must be taught as if you taught them not,

And things unknown proposed as things forgot.
