Seacrest Symposium is essentially a four level philosophy course. It is graded, but there is little to no “homework”. All of our work in the classroom is done using the Socratic Method using formal discussions to introduce the deepest themes and questions from human history. The goal of Symposium is to reinforce the key values of our school and to help kids connect the most important themes in life to their everyday lives. In a word: Relevance. Symposium helps students see how school is relevant in both small, every day ways, and in large philosophical ways.
