The Institute's mission is to promote civic and personal virtue through the strengthening and expansion of classical, liberal arts education. Its vision is to lead the classical education movement by engaging academics, intellectual leaders, and policymakers in ways that promote holistic, character-centered education both inside and outside the classical world.
In classical education, where you came from doesn’t matter; we’re focused on where you’re going. We are more than a growing charter network. We are a coalition of people committed to bringing the opportunity a classical education affords to children and young adults in communities across the country.
A truly classical, liberal arts education is the best way to produce well-rounded, thoughtful students whose intellectual capacities for precision, insight, and eloquence are developed through conducting experiments, solving math problems, exploring imaginative worlds, and producing fine art.
The classically educated graduate is more than college- or career-ready. Each of our alumni is equipped with the ability to make wise decisions and the character necessary to ensure that everything they do improves their community and our world.
Virtue is the flagship publication of the Institute for Classical Education. It disseminates stories, ideas, research and experiences in classical education to readers across the nation, helping them pursue the classical ideals of truth, goodness, and beauty.
At the Institute for Classical Education, we believe that a classical education is not only for the privileged few, but for every child, no matter their zip code. We invite you to help us bring a classical education to dozens of additional communities and thousands more children as we aim to bring a Classical education to more than 50,000 students by 2025.
We are honored to partner with a wide range of generous corporations, foundations,
and individual donors in bringing a classical education to as many children as possible.
New academies can only be created with substantial philanthropic investment. We long to open more school doors to cultivate the hearts and minds of students to pursue Truth, Goodness and Beauty. Please join us in this moral imperative for our country.
