Writing is Still Important: A Conversation with Paul Kortepeter

April 4 

Ponder with author Paul Kortepeter why rhetorical training is still vital in our information-saturated world.

Writing & Rhetoric taps into an ancient art that moves us beyond a chatbot world to imitating and emulating the great authors.

 Crispina Read Aloud Family Night

February 22  

Elizabeth Crispina Johnson, of blessed memory, was a founding instructor of St. Raphael School. Beloved by students, families, and the wide Orthodox community, she left a legacy of literacy which generations will treasure.  As she used to recall, one of her most joyous childhood memories was going to a nearby “small stone library” where she would “curl up in a corner” to read.  It is in this spirit, we announce our inaugural Crispina Read Aloud Family Night!  Come and join us!

Guest Reader: Celeste Gregor, Daughter of Elizabeth Johnson

Scholé Academy Lecture Hall Presents Heidi White

January 19th, 2023

In C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Professor Kirke laments the dreary landscape of modern education with the famous quip, “It’s all in Plato, all in Plato: Bless me, what do they teach them at these schools?” An essential touchstone of Plato’s and Lewis’ shared educational vision is the preeminence of instilling moral and intellectual virtue in our students. But to what end? Too many classical educators teach only to the dutiful part of our student’s souls, but virtue is also for delight. If we were made for infinite joy, how do we cultivate Christian happiness as well as holiness? In this talk, Heidi White draws from Plato and Lewis to cast a vision for virtuous delight guided by ancient understandings of beauty and temperance.

Scholé Academy Lecture Hall Presents Joshua Gibbs

December 12th, 2022

When you’re in the mood for a movie, how do you choose what you’ll watch? Given that the average American now spends more than a hundred hours every year just scrolling through Netflix menus, it is safe to assume that most Americans don’t know how to pick a movie. The way in which Christians choose what to watch is quite complicated. They want to be entertained, they want to be enlightened, but they also want to keep their finger on the cultural pulse of the country. What considerations ought to have top priority?

In this lecture, Joshua Gibbs reads the first chapter of Love What Lasts, his sprawling new book about how we choose what to watch, read, eat, wear, worship, and listen to. The first chapter of Love What Lasts is all about film—how film has changed since the 60s, how Christian viewing strategies have changed in the last generation, and what sort of questions confront the man who now has unlimited viewing options. If you often find yourself debating what to watch, are regularly disappointed with your choices, or simply want to have better taste in film—or better taste in general—this reading from Love What Lasts will help get you thinking in a new direction.
