Ages 14-18 (pre-I)
The Stoic Prep Course is a ten (10) week program that helps teens understand Stoicism as a way of life, and to prepare them to navigate life’s turbulence: Stoicism is not about suppressing your emotions; it is about understanding your emotions and having that understanding guide your actions.
A qualified Stoic mentor will accompany you through this journey as an adviser and friend, but will also help you see how just a few simple ideas can change and improve the way you live each day. The course involves some reading and writing activities. All work is completion-based (not graded), and will be accepted based on the honor system. At the end of the course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion.
This 10 week course utilizes curriculum developed by the school, along with the Epictetus’ Enchiridion and Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations. Graduates receive a Certificate of Completion.
Application is open to students ages 14 to 18. Students who are under 18 must have their parents complete the Parental Consent form (downloadable here) prior to being considered for admission. Should parental consent be denied, payment will be refunded. The tuition fee is US$90.
