The Edge, our high school seminar program meets monthly at Chestnut Hill Center. High school young men meet in three different grade settings to broaden their high school education and look forward to becoming good professionals, fathers, citizens and friends.
The picture shows some of the seniors in Professor Dwight Duncan’s class discussing philosophical ideas that currently underlie the academics at most universities. Some topics discussed this year include authority and freedom, morality and conscience and human rights.
Sophomores and Juniors in The Edge explore career interests by learning from presentations given by guests in a variety of fields. This year they have heard about Engineering, Law, Marketing, Investments and Communications. Up next: Robotics, Environmental science, Data analysis and Education.
The Freshmen learn to establish the right priorities in high school. Topics have included studying for success, character and maturity and the importance of friendship.
