Learning takes place each time a person experiences something new. Education, however, is more than the sum total of facts, people, processes, skills, and experiences imparted in the classroom. Fundamentally, education involves the transmission of a manner of thinking about the most important and inescapable ideas that would result in changed behavior. Historically speaking, one distinguished the education that took place through the study of the Liberal Arts (Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric, Astronomy, Arithmetic, Music, and Geometry) from the varied vocational training programs that taught a student a skill or task in order to be a productive member of society. The ancient Greeks would have reasoned that the former was the only suitable form of education for a free man (hence, the derivation of “liberal” education), while the latter was appropriate for the slave, who didn’t have to think, but merely obey and execute. We wish to maintain this important distinction between education and vocational training at MHA, believing that we are called as a classical and Christian school to do the former. It is important to note that while a well-educated man could easily learn the skills of the slave, it is unreasonable to believe that the slave could do the reverse. Historically, a school like MHA (and most certainly the universities and colleges) dealt in education, not in vocational training, which was best suited for apprenticeships and trade schools. The fact that many (if not most) have abandoned a liberal education for a vocational one provides an even greater impetus and rationale for the existence of genuinely classical and Christian secondary schools and colleges.
