What is a Liberal Education?

Liberal Education has been described as a philosophy of education that empowers individuals with broad knowledge, transferable skills, strong sense of values, ethics, and civic engagement - characterised by challenging encounters with important issues. It is more a way of studying than a specific course or field of study.

Why should children pursue liberal education in high school:

Liberal education equips learners to develop a global outlook and gain the skills necessary to address real-world problems. More importantly, it is designed to help students develop them in a way that is unique to each one of them.

How can liberal education contribute to a fuller life and career:

Liberal education prepares learners for their futures and not our pasts. Learners who pursue a liberal education think critically and creatively, solve problems collaboratively, and arrive at well-considered and original solutions.
