This school is dedicated to pursuing the study of the humanities, i.e. art, literature, history, philosophy etc., from a spiritual point of view. It is founded in the tradition of the twelfth century School of Chartres, or Marsilio Ficino's Florentine Academy (itself modeled on Plato's academy) as a philosophically spiritual means of approach to education. We believe that academe as it currently stands is a petrified institution that is no longer redeemable and which this school is designed to counteract. It is, above all, founded as an act of rebellion against a corrupt university system that is no longer capable of providing a holistic education, a problem which this school intends to rectify with the application and restoration of Big Picture thinking.

Note that signing up for your school will add students to your Users list, but they will still need to enroll in specific courses and coaching products of their choice to access your content.
