On Athletics: the Nobility, Purpose, and Formational Value of High School Sports Properly Understood

Mr. Thompson and Mr. Berthe will share with us a proper understanding of a commonly misprioritized activity. Athletics are important, but for reasons that sometimes escape us. Spend an evening thinking about our sons' true love, and how we can do more to help them get the most from their athletic experience at The Heights and beyond.

“You GET to take Latin”: On the Benefits of Classical Studies in the 21st Century

Few people speak Latin; even fewer speak ancient Greek. Why do we study these languages here at The Heights? Why do we REQUIRE our students to study Latin? Is it out of a quaint fascination with the old and the ancient? Or, are there both practical and noble, servile and liberal, reasons to study not only the languages of the ancients but their texts as well?
