Our objective is to establish a strong, healthy and sustainable secondary education that is Catholic, classical in nature, and single sex. We will start from a solid core so as to establish deep roots while simultaneously employing a scalable model in order to enable sustainable growth.
First, we seek to incorporate students into the wisdom of two thousand years of Catholic thought, history, culture, and arts so that they might understand themselves and their world in the light of the truth. In doing so, we aim to instill the character to live happy and integrated lives in the service of God and others.
As such, we stand with the Church in the belief that it is Jesus Christ who most fully embodies what it means to be a free person: that “Christ the Lord. Christ the new Adam, in the very revelation of the mystery of the Father and of his love, fully reveals man to himself and brings to light his most high calling.” (GS 22)
We will employ the tools of classical learning which provide a time-tested means of educating students, and is in large part, a key contributor to the longevity of western civilization. Students will read well, speak well, write well, and think well – key skills to thrive in the modern world.
Classical education will also contribute to the formation of students beyond the classroom and will ultimately be far more than the mere acquisition of skills. Our students will become intimately familiar with the physical world through outdoor learning which will be a key component of our identity. Ultimately, via the classroom and beyond, students will embrace the inherent value of truth and beauty.
In our highly fragmented culture, a key distinction has been lost, namely, the simple and obvious learning differences between boys and girls. If we hope to develop young men and young women who thrive, we must usher them into adulthood with a vision towards the full meaning of their particular vocations as men and as women. The school we are creating is in reality two schools operating in unison – one for young men and one for young women.
These schools will benefit from joint resources and will coexist in the shared filial task of meeting the world together. Eventually this will take shape in a shared campus with multiple buildings. Some academic and physical facilities will be divided, while others will be consolidated. This environment will achieve the goal of each school having a clear sense of its own identity, manifested in proper independence yet interdependence.
Our implementation plan will employ a scalable approach that will set and reach realistic growth objectives for the overall realization of the mission. We will establish and order our priorities early and clearly, allowing us to work within the realities of any possible limitations but never compromising the primary and paramount goal of providing an excellent education. In all phases of development, we will consistently strive to achieve uncompromised academic excellence.
