Our Mission & Philosophy

The Lyceum has as its mission nothing less than the formation of a liberally educated Catholic lady or gentleman. Broadly stated, The Lyceum aims to produce graduates who, having been formed by Catholic western civilization, then become bearers and guardians of that civilization. In more specific terms, the Lyceum aims to prepare its students not only for successful performance in excellent colleges, but to prepare students who will be a “leaven” in the world. Most importantly The Lyceum seeks to form students who will become lifelong learners in a joyful pursuit of the Truth who is Christ.

Liberal Education

“This process of training, by which the intellect, instead of being formed or sacrificed to some particular or accidental purpose, some specific trade or profession, or study or science, is disciplined for its own sake, for the perception of its own proper object, and for its own highest culture, is called Liberal Education…”

--Saint John Henry Newman
