This essay, written by the founder of Simon’s Rock in the summer of 1967 after the school’s first academic year in operation, describes the societal and pedagogical underpinnings that inspired the author’s creation of an alternative educational pathway for bright, young, and motivated students. The piece reviews the academic structure and goals of a liberal arts education at Simon’s Rock, a residential early college.
