Acquire Wisdom

Wisdom is the discerning and proper use of knowledge. Do we care how much our students know? Most certainly. But the acquisition of knowledge must be subservient to its purpose.

Students must not only learn historical facts, scientific theorems, and philosophical ideas, they must apply them with discernment in a multitude of situations. Students learn to magnify their acquisition of knowledge through the study of the liberal arts and by applying the principles learned in simulations, discussions and field experiences.

Although knowledge alone is more measurable than its application, a good mentor will strive to instill both.

Learn Diplomacy


“The habits of the activeutilization of well-understood principles is the final possession of wisdom.”
