Our aim is to facilitate lifelong learning for high school students and adults of all ages, outside of the pressures and time constraints of formal schooling. We understand that many educated and successful adults did not enjoy the benefit of formal schooling in the humanities or the liberal arts - this is why we would like to offer a one-on-one 'out-of-the-classroom' experience that is both enriching and exciting.
Increasingly, humanities education includes an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses a wide variety of fields. Skills such as critical thought, persuasive writing and historical depth are needed to succeed is fields as diverse as finance and physics. We seek to integrate liberal arts education with the needs of contemporary society, whether that's mental health, media literacy, or better decisions in public policy or finance.
