Education alone is not the solution to the world’s problems. An education does not necessarily make students good. It can, in fact, make them puffed up and vain. Knowledge is power. The goal of a classical education is to form the mind and character of the student so that he will use the power of knowledge for good ends.
Every school has a culture which is a reflection of its leadership. We strive to form the mind and character of the student to follow the example of Jesus Christ, the hero and savior of mankind, to practice the seven cardinal virtues, and to avoid the seven deadly sins.
At Highlands Latin, students start their day with this prayer:
Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous;
teach me to serve You as You deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward
save that of knowing I am doing Your Will.
Through Christ Our Lord,
