A Higher Glory

A school is a dream. It’s built on the fantasy that one can create a world, a community, a culture, that nourishes the soul and leads people to higher ends. For some the ends are individualistic, particular, even the self-indulgence of a self-important mind. For others the ends are higher – oriented toward the perfection of the nature of an object. For others there is a still higher dream, in which perfected (mature, highly developed) adults give a higher glory to a higher God.
