About UsAdmissionsAcademicsCampus LifeAthleticsAlumniParentsGiving


We take what might be called a "humanist" approach to the teaching of literature and writing. We recognize that we deal in confidence and self-esteem, as well as in imagery and syntax. Together, we are involved in the four-year project of helping our students to think of themselves as writers, thinkers, and as moral citizens.

We recognize that, for a lot of students, the English classroom can be a kind of sanctuary for self-expression, and with the beauty of self-expression comes the messiness of self-reflection. Each teacher in the department has attempted to create a learning environment in which students are not afraid to express themselves as they search for their own personal visions of truth.
