Virtue: Fall 2018

Virtue Magazine — Science

Each issue of Virtue will have articles and interviews from the nation’s leading intellectuals; profiles of outstanding teachers, alumni, and students; succinct descriptions of classical education—what, how, and why we teach the liberal arts; essays by leading academic scholars, relating their work to classical education; and an assortment of topics to keep us all thinking afresh, as we continue to pursue the classical ideals of truth, goodness, and beauty. 

The Director’s Take

In due time, classical education touches upon every subject, through the arts of language and the sciences of inquiry, preparing students for an ever-expanding circle of knowledge and equipping them to apply that knowledge to the common good. 

Character, the Project of Life

When I started looking at the characteristics of high achievers, I found that they had lots of things that made them special, but grit emerged as an important common denominator, whether you’re talking about a prima ballerina, a grand chess master, a mathematician, or a writer.

Profiles in Classical Education

In 2007, Meredith Palmer received her diploma from Veritas Preparatory Academy (Phoenix, AZ) as part of the first graduating class of that classical charter school. Eleven years later, she is pursuing her passions for research, biology, and the Serengeti. 

Psychometric Innovations

When the SAT was founded in 1926, it helped to level the playing field for excellent students who lacked the pedigree to attend Ivy League colleges. It allowed the very best students to rise to positions of leadership and influence in business and politics, regardless of background. 

STEM Students need the liberal arts

The liberal arts, which teach us to consider at the same time the huge and the tiny, are the antidote par excellence to this microscopic approach. Moreover, the liberal arts teach about the human things—what we especially need to emphasize in an age of mechanism and simulation.
