Building a Life of Character (6 weeks)
This is a study of ethics for older students whose decisions are becoming more challenging and whose core values and choices have significance for the next steps in education and beyond. An important objective here is to create a personal mission statement and improve upon it through personal reflection and writing, discussion with fellow students and the teacher, and studying men and women who have set an example of living a life of character. Join us to wrestle with the kind of self-direction and inner strength that leads to a happy, fulfilling, and significant life.

 

Joining The Thinker in Paris: Western Philosophy (5 weeks)**

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” —Mark Twain

 

“Philosophy” comes from Greek words meaning “love of wisdom.”  Philosophy uses the tools of logic and reason to analyze the ways in which humans experience the world.  It teaches critical thinking, close reading, clear writing, and logical analysis; it uses these to understand the language we use to describe the world, and our place within it.  Different areas of philosophy are distinguished by the questions they ask.  Do our senses accurately describe reality?  What makes wrong actions wrong?  How should we live?  These are philosophical questions, and philosophy teaches the ways in which we might begin to answer them.**


Money Talk (5 weeks)

Financial literacy is a must for this age group! A financial mistake in the teens is recoverable, however, a financial mistake later in life can be disastrous. And that is why we offer this class. During these three intense weekly classes, children will develop an understanding of financial literacy, a first step to ensuring proper money management skills later in life. Setting a realistic budget, responsibly managing credit and debt, saving for unexpected expenses, and learning how to invest will all be important life skills for every young adult to master. We will have some serious fun as we study this serious subject of managing our money.
