What is Schola?

Schola │Latin │noun │ /ˈskʰo.la/

1. leisure for learning

2. an intermission from work

3. learned conversation

4. a meeting place for teachers and students

Schola is a unique high school summer program that affords students an opportunity to grow in friendship, devotion, wisdom, and wonder—through leisure. Participants are invited to slow down, to spend a summer week cultivating the goodness of their souls by reading and discussing classic works of philosophy and literature with friends and having meaningful conversations about the fundamental questions of life.
