A Community of Learners
Freedom to focus, freedom to explore, freedom to grow
There's a freedom in a single-sex classroom that allows us to accomplish our mission more effectively.

We bring philosophy, history, literature and theology under the same umbrella, and discuss them in one course. Three goals of the course are to learn how to read well, to discuss well and to write with clarity and depth.
