Welcome to The Stoa

Our Mission

With a commitment to traditional Stoicism, we endeavor to educate all who would be Stoics and Stoic philosophers, who aspire to the Good Life, and who wish to excel in their roles as family member, worker, creator, mentor, teacher, advisor, and leader, within the world community. We are the Stoa.

Our Educational Philosophy

The educational philosophy of the College of Stoic Philosophers is based upon the idea that philosophy is a way of life, not just a theoretical discipline. We believe that philosophy should aim at improving one’s character and conduct, and at attaining wisdom and happiness. We also believe that philosophy should be accessible and useful to everyone, regardless of their social status, gender, or background. Our College is a philosophical community of practice, which encourages study, dialogue, exercises and mentorship, as a means of applying Stoic principles to our daily lives.
