The Good, The True, The Beautiful

What is a Classical Education?

Classical education seeks to form children in virtue, good habits of the soul, that allow them to know the Truth, love the Good, and take pleasure in the Beautiful. The classical Liberal Arts, including Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric, teach students to read well, think coherently, and express the truth clearly and persuasively in writing and speech. The classical Liberal Arts of Arithmetic, Geometry, Music, and Astronomy, form students in mathematics and the natural sciences, cultivating a sense of wonder by observing the order and harmony of the created universe. Good poetry, songs, and stories about heroes provide examples of heroic virtue, living ideals of prudence, temperance, justice, and courage. Ennobled by such role models, students, who are formed in wisdom and virtue, are prepared for a life of true freedom and happiness.
