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

Enabling students to thrive

TSMV's Class of 2015
Challenged to Protect Religious Liberty
Each year, TSMV’s senior class gathers for the Headmaster’s Breakfast followed by the Senior Challenge. The key highlight of the annual event is a distinguished guest speaker. This year, on August 21, the Class of 2015 heard Dr. Thomas Farr, director of the Religious Freedom Project and the Program on Religion and U.S. Foreign Policy at Georgetown's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs. Dr. Farr described the growing crisis of religious persecution in the world and challenged them to work diligently to protect religious liberty. Citing a 2012 Pew Research study detailing how Christians constitute the most persecuted religious group in the world, Farr informed them about the United States’ Religious Liberty Protection Act of 1998 that makes religious liberty part of American foreign policy. He encouraged the students to play a role: some, he hopes, by joining the U.S. Foreign Service; all of them by encouraging their representatives to uphold Religious Liberty Protection Act. Finally, he exhorted the Class of 2015 to leave a lasting legacy and to work toward social unity by fighting for religious liberty in our world.
