Classical Education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue by nourishing the soul on truth, goodness, and beauty, so that, in Christ, the student is better able to know, glorify, and enjoy God.
Author of Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum
"Classical education seeks the fullest integration of self, world, and God. It treats every aspect of the curriculum as an inroad to the divine law in which God is revealed and in which God reveals man to himself. In the light of this revelation the learner receives facts (no matter the subject) as pieces of a divine family story and skills as the means of serving that family.
By virtue of integral learning, the student arrives at a deeper understanding of fact itself, and of its application to the good of the student and the world in which the student lives. Over the centuries, we have labeled this integration "wisdom" and have taken it as the key to success, happiness, and fulfillment in this world and the next."
In this light, the first and most crucial test of knowledge is interior, in the conscience, which “bears witness to the authority of truth in reference to the supreme Good to which the human person is drawn”
(Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1777).
