1. Academic Excellence
We have adopted a rigorous, classical approach to education. We believe that the holistic approach personified by the classical model is exceptionally outstanding in preparing the scholar to retain knowledge, think logically and analytically, communicate effectively and succeed in life by being a responsible, caring, contributing member to society. Within that context, every teacher is passionate about their subject and has exceptional qualifications to perform their role with excellence. High academic standards are maintained for each scholar, with the expectation that each can succeed. Every young person is encouraged to maximize his/her learning potential and develop a lifelong love for learning.
2. Partnership with Families
We believe that parents have the ultimate responsibility for the education of their children. We serve as an extension of the home, partnering with parents and serving families in the intellectual, social, emotional and ethical development of their children. Parental support is essential to the success of educating young people with a classical approach to education. Teachers, administration and parents must work together to make sure that scholars’ learning takes place in both the school and the home.
3. Children & Learning
We believe children are unique and worthy of our utmost attention, love and respect. The child’s mind is not a blank slate or a bucket to be filled. It is a living thing and needs knowledge to grow. We believe that each child has powers of mind which fit him to deal with all knowledge proper to him, and therefore, we should give him a full, rich and generous curriculum, taking care only that all knowledge offered him is vital, that is, that facts are not presented without their informing ideas, allowing scholars to think in an independent and critical fashion.
