Scholé of Northern Virginia

Our educational philosophy is inspired by the concept of scholé, or “restful learning.” We believe in education for the pursuit of truth, beauty, and goodness, not for checking boxes. Our philosophy is best described as classical progressivism: in order to be part of the “great conversation” of human history, one must be familiar with the canon of knowledge, however, the best way to truly become educated is through real, hands-on experiences, self-motivated learning, and learning side-by-side with others.
