There is only one way to preserve in the world that high levity and more leisurely outlook which fulfills the old vision of universalism…there must be in the center of every humanity one human being upon a larger plan; one who does not ‘give her best,’ but gives her all.
G.K. Chesterton, What’s Wrong With the World
Women’s vocation as spouse and mother, whether in the biological or spiritual sense, involves the preservation and transmission of culture in all its breadth and variety.
In the face of increasing specialization and the loss of many of the basic arts, she must stand for liberality, for the personal and the human.
She must, as Chesterton suggests, be free to develop “all her second bests.”
To this end, the school’s founders believe strongly that education must involve more than classroom subjects.
What might be considered “extras” by some are instead treated as an essential part of our educational philosophy and structure.
Young women will be given the opportunity to develop aesthetic sensibilities and acquire meaningful wisdom and skill through a study of both traditionally academic and non-academic subjects.
Our curriculum will reflect a synthesis of the liberal arts with varied, practical applications.
