Liberal Arts as Liberty, Truth, and Harmony: A New College Franklin + CiRCE Collaboration

In an age of fragmentation and discord, the souls of our students need to learn how to resolve what can be resolved and to endure what must be endured. They need the habits and virtues cultivated through the ancient wisdom tradition, especially in its use of the liberal arts of the quadrivium. The Christian classical renewal opens unimagined possibilities for our students minds and even the wider culture, and our approach to the quadrivium will largely determine how well we succeed.

Join us for this important contemplation of what this means for our schools, homes, and classrooms, and how we might take on this challenge in the 21st century.
