For the first time, this summer Thomas Aquinas College’s High School Great Books program will be offered in two locations — at the College’s California campus, just 70 miles north of Los Angeles, and at its new campus in Massachusetts, 100 miles west of Boston.
For two weeks at each location, rising high school seniors from around the country and abroad will delight in spirited conversation, engaging firsthand some of the best works of the past 2,500 years. They will read and discuss texts selected from the masters of the Western intellectual tradition, including Plato, Euclid, Shakespeare, Pascal, and St. Thomas Aquinas. Although the different venues will feature attractions and outings particular to their locales, both will be centered around the College’s unique program of Catholic liberal education.
Whether on the West Coast or East, the High School Summer Program is a time for forging new friendships, for enjoying the give and take of rational argument, and for pursuing the truth, which civilizes, ennobles, and liberates.
There are still spots available on both coasts, so apply now!
