PURPOSE OF EDUCATION

Each person possesses an inherent dignity, along with the ability to formulate rational, independent thought.  The purpose of education is to develop this reasoning ability so that scholars are equipped to be moral and intellectual leaders, seeking truth, goodness, and beauty throughout their lives.   In keeping with the classical tradition, truth exists and is objective, ordered, and knowable.   Scholars are to pursue knowledge in an effort to find truth, acknowledging, as Socrates did, the difficulties of this as well as the limits of intellect, yet agreeing with him that “the unexamined life is not worth living.”  

METHOD
The method of liberal education is to present students with the general knowledge needed to live a meaningful life, including how to analyze information and form independent conclusions, express thoughts persuasively, and possess the character necessary to make wise, long-term choices.
