At St. John’s College (SJC), a leader in the renewal of classical and liberal education in America, the great books—from Augustine to Shakespeare, Plato to Pascal—are our most important teachers. Johnnies study such authors in small, discussion-based seminars, diving deeply into works of literature, philosophy, theology, mathematics and the sciences. SJC offers both undergraduate and graduate programs on two beautiful campuses, in Annapolis, MD and Santa Fe, NM. SJC’s Graduate Institute, founded more than 50 years ago as the “Teachers Institute for Liberal Education,” features two programs specifically designed for educators: the two-summer Certificate in Liberal Arts Education with a classical focus and a four-semester MA in Liberal Arts. Graduate Institute students may select from five segments: “Philosophy and Theology,” “Politics and Society,” “Literature,” “History,” and “Mathematics and Natural Science.” Additionally, we offer the opportunity to study Greek and Latin. Both administrators and teachers who are enrolled in the Certificate or full degree programs may receive significant financial aid, including some full-tuition fellowships. President of St. John’s College, Annapolis, Pano Kanelos, serves on the Institute’s Advisory Council.

The Charter Management Organization (CMO) for Brilla Schools Network is Seton Education Partners, an organization inspired by the Catholic educational tradition, that also manages the Seton Teaching Fellows missionary program and El Camino, an after-school Catholic faith formation program. At the heart of the Seton educational mission is our dedication to help students become young men and women of good character and spirit who are prepared for excellence in high school, college, and beyond. Brilla combines a Classical approach to education – an emphasis on an ennobling and content-rich curriculum, inductive inquiry-driven instruction, and virtue formation that fosters an encounter with Truth, Beauty, and Goodness – with co-teaching practices and individualized online instructional support.

Ours is a joyful community that honors the dignity of each student, our staff members, and the families we serve.

In the tradition of missions that have established schools, colleges, hospitals, food banks, shelters and other works intended to meet the needs of their neighbors, no matter their background, we offer support to any teacher in any kind of school or adult education program, serving all kinds of students. We believe in the dignity of every human being and that each one deserves an exceptional humanities education. That is why we are committed to serving all teachers and fostering humanities for everyone.
The support we provide improves teaching; better teaching improves learning; and better learning advances both the good of each individual student and the common good.
As an Academy we study, develop, and teach the best ways for teachers to master their art. Why “Cana”? A modern adaptation of the ancient story of the wedding feast proved restorative for the protagonist in Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov. In that restoration his vision of the order and goodness of life became clear, his ability to serve others in that light grew strong. We are inspired by that story in its ancient and modern versions. It drives all we do.

For generations, West Virginia has been an object of ridicule, pity, and even curiosity – its economy and people among the poorest in the United States for well over a century.
An “island” of poverty in the wealthiest country the world, West Virginia’s brighter future depends on a new paradigm: a new way of looking at the world with new ideas and a philosophy built on innovation, human flourishing, and a recognition that freedom is the greatest alleviator of poverty the world has ever seen. Ours is a philosophy built on the entrepreneur, the tinkerer in the garage, and the idea that small government means more room for people to create and build their own futures.
The Cardinal Institute for West Virginia Policy was founded by a group of West Virginians in 2014 to usher in this vision, and lay the intellectual groundwork for West Virginia’s brighter future. Cardinal’s founders believed that West Virginia must get the government out of the way so its citizens can craft their own future free of unnecessary government intrusion, bureaucracy, arbitrary regulation, and burdensome taxes.
The founders felt that this new paradigm needed an organization whose sole mission was to create, research, communicate, and popularize freedom-enhancing ideas for the public. Cardinal hired its first employee in the fall of 2015, has been deeply engaged in West Virginia’s marketplace of ideas ever since.

Eighth Day Books has specialized in classic books across the disciplines of art, science, and the humanities since 1988, when we first opened our store in Wichita, Kansas.
From the beginning, we have not been a typical independent bookstore; we eschew the trendy, and do not carry books solely based on their sale ability. Instead, we’re selective, offering an eccentric community of books based on this organizing principle: if a book (be it literary, scientific, historical, or theological) sheds light on ultimate questions in an excellent way, then it’s a worthy candidate for inclusion in our catalog.
Reality doesn’t divide itself into “religious” and “literary” and “secular” spheres, so we don’t either. We’re convinced that all truths are related and every truth, if we pay attention rightly, directs our gaze toward God. One of our customers found us “eclectic but orthodox.” We like that.

Increasingly, American institutions — colleges and universities, businesses, government, the media and even our children’s schools — are enforcing a cynical and intolerant orthodoxy. This orthodoxy requires us to identify ourselves and each other based on immutable characteristics like skin color, gender and sexual orientation. It pits us against one another, and diminishes what it means to be human.
Today, almost 70 years after Brown v. Board of Education ushered in the Civil Rights Movement, there is an urgent need to reaffirm and advance its core principles. To insist on our common humanity. To demand that we are each entitled to equality under the law. To bring about a world in which we are all judged by the content of our character and not by the color of our skin.
That’s where FAIR comes in.

What Will They Learn?® evaluates over 1,100 general education programs annually so that high school counselors, students, and parents know, in advance, which institutions offer rigorous liberal arts-oriented general education programs.
We aim to encourage institutions to strengthen their general education requirements so that students graduate better prepared for the workforce, ready to participate in their communities as informed citizens, and acquainted with our cultural and intellectual inheritance. We also work to educate families, high school counselors, and educators about the importance of students selecting colleges or universities with a strong core curriculum.
Reasoned debate and free inquiry are the cornerstone of a quality collegiate education. That is why we work to spotlight universities that have adopted the Chicago Principles on Freedom of Expression as well as academic programs that foster intellectual community in pursuit of liberal learning and a free and open marketplace of ideas.
