ABOUT US - A WELCOME FROM THE HEADMASTER
Thank you for your interest in The Lyceum. Our program of classical Catholic education is an exceptional college preparatory program which lays a solid foundation for lifelong learning. Our graduates score exceptionally high on the SAT and about 25% of them have received national merit recognition on the PSAT as Commended Students, Finalists, and Scholars. They attend some of the finest college and universities throughout the country and major in a variety of disciplines from engineering and pre-medicine to politics and theology.
Students of The Lyceum experience a breadth of education that encompasses each and every area of learning. At the heart of classical education are “the classics” -- the greatest works of mathematics, science, history, music, literature, philosophy, and theology. The classics, often referred to as the “great books”, are the foundational works without which Western Civilization would not exist. Each generation must “discover” these works anew for real learning is in souls, not in books. Through the reading and discussion of the classics, true liberal education, i.e. the education of free men, takes place. Such an education is necessary for all people, but especially for citizens of a democracy for whom freedom is essential. Without a liberal education, liberty can become license and men can be subject to the darkness of a “dictatorship of relativism.”
The motto of the Lyceum is “Fiat lux.” Let there be light. With a liberal education the light of truth shines in the soul and the individual develops an integrity of mind which allows him to judge wisely in all fields of learning. Classical liberal education is not only good for the individual, but it is essential for the survival of Western Civilization, a civilization which arose out of the “logos” of the Greeks and The Logos--“The Word” who became flesh.
Enjoy reading about our program of classical Catholic education and discover if The Lyceum is right for your child. We believe that it is right for every child who desires to live as a free man in a free society.Fiat lux!
