Our approach to education is distinctive because it is multi-directional. It looks to the past and the present to prepare students for the future. On the one hand, we employ what Dorothy Sayers calls “the lost tools of learning.” This includes providing our students with a firm foundation in grammar and logic, which itself includes the teaching of classical languages. In providing these skills, we equip students with the very best tools to think clearly and creatively. On the other hand, we take seriously the best contemporary tools of education. This means, for example, that we teach creative writing as well as inquiry-based science.
