Smith Prep offers an array of challenging semester-long elective courses designed to prepare students to live wisely and faithfully in the midst of a culture that is often inhospitable to the Christian faith.
These courses count half a high school credit and are conducted in a seminar style that emphasizes careful reading and vigorous discussion.
In the 2017 Spring semester, Smith Prep will be offering two such courses: Christian Ethics and The Life and Thought of Augustine.
Christian Ethics will meet on Mondays from 11:45 to 1:00 and it will be taught by Mr. Sacasas. This class is designed to help students think biblically about both the moral dimensions of everyday life and the more extraordinary ethical problems that we face in the 21st century.
The Life and Thought of Augustine will meet on Wednesdays from 2:20 to 3:35 and it will be taught by Mr. Phillips. The course will explore Augustine’s classic texts including the Confessions, The City of God, On Christian Doctrine, and On the Trinity with a view to better understanding our own moment of cultural confusion and learning how we should navigate the tensions of living as both citizens of the City of God and the City of Man.
