A Message from Joe Fana, Principal of The Classical School

It’s been an amazing first week back at TCS!

If you recall from last week’s post, I wanted to spend a few weeks discussing the elements of our School’s Mission Statement.  This week, I want to focus on “Wisdom beyond scholarship…”  At TCS, the idea of academic rigor and excellence in learning are at the core of who we are; however, it is not the pinnacle of what we desire of our students.  Our desire is for our students to display wisdom.  Merriam-Webster defines wisdom as “the natural ability to understand things that most other people cannot understand.”  So where does the wisdom come from?  We see in James 1 that wisdom not only comes from God, but he will also give it to us generously.  Let us focus not only on high scholastic excellence, but also asking our God to give us the wisdom to use the knowledge learned for His glory.

 

RECOGNITION

First Day of School

The first day for TCS students and teachers was successful! It was so wonderful to see both old and new faces! We are looking forward to a fabulous school year.
