A Community of Learners
Freedom to focus, freedom to explore, freedom to grow
There's a freedom in a single-sex classroom that allows us to accomplish our mission more effectively.
Fostering one great conversation
We bring philosophy, history, literature and theology under the same umbrella, and discuss them in one course. Three goals of the course are to learn how to read well, to discuss well and to write with clarity and depth.
Filling the gap between the chalkboard and demonstrations
Matlab programming enables students to integrate what they're learning in math and science.
Enabling students to thrive
"I want them to see the beauty of our topics, not just ask: how do you solve a problem?"— Faculty member.
