It should be clear from the beginning that there are some differences between the WISDOM Socratic Online Program and a Provincial high school program. WISDOM’s aim is to offer a classical education. A classical education can refer to using the classics (i.e. the Great Books) in studies, or it can also refer to the time-honored approach to education, an approach which has been recognized from the time of ancient Greece, through Roman civilization, and through Christendom by means of Socratic dialogue. This classical approach is still preserved today by some educational institutions. WISDOM strives to offer an authentic classical education.
