Cultivate Your Classical Roots

Heritage is a summer honors program for high school students who demonstrate a commitment to Christ, a curiosity to explore the foundations of classical thought, and an eagerness to apply an integrated framework of creativity to life. During this program, students will experience college life on the coast of New England as they explore the riches of a liberal arts education. Throughout the week, full of faculty seminars, cross-cultural cooking classes, excursions into historic Boston and workshops in the creative arts, students will cultivate the disciplines and desires necessary to live a life of flourishing.  



The modern world poses unique challenges and opportunities to our fundamental worldview questions. How do we discern truth in a world of distractions and propaganda? How do we speak powerfully and persuasively as the people of God?

We are fashioned in the image of a Creator God. He invites us to use our whole selves—minds, bodies, and hearts—to create alongside him. How do we integrate doctrine with discovery, intellect with imagination, and communication with creativity?



We have been grafted into the beauty of a grand story. We have received a rich heritage of classical tradition from the world-shapers before us. How will we steward this inheritance to become godly and virtuous leaders?
