High School Subjects


Philosophy is not traditionally taught in American high schools. We believe this deprives students of the training needed to ponder important questions and think independently. Knowledge of how history's greatest thinkers have approached philosophical questions should be part of the patrimony of every human being.

This course starts with a series of philosophy lectures from The Great Courses, organized by philosophical topic rather than chronologically.

Philosophy textbooks can often be dry. Instead, we use a unique book that presents the history of Western thought in the form of a novel.

Students then read primary sources including several of Plato's dialogues, and an anthology of selections from both historical and modern philosophers.
