Hillsdale College's Charter School Initiative and the Reformation of Classical Public Education

Via Susan

Hillsdale College is a longstanding institution whose mission is to provide an education steeped in a strong foundation of the classical arts and sciences, combined with an emphasis on each student’s uniqueness and the development of “critical, well-disciplined minds.

Having implemented this mission at the collegiate level, Hillsdale College has now been reaching out to parents and school founding groups, seeking to reform K-12 public education.

As its website indicates, the Barney Charter School Initiative of Hillsdale College promises that the charter schools it helps launch “will train the minds and improve the hearts of young people through a rigorous, classical education in the liberal arts and sciences, with instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue.”
