What is a liberal arts education?

A liberal arts education provides a strong background in all academic areas.   The curriculum includes in-depth studies in mathematics, sciences, languages, literature, social studies, and fine arts, as well as opportunities to explore technology, athletics, and life skills.  Students grow in  their abilities to read, write and speak effectively, and to examine ideas critically. The rigorous curriculum of the liberal arts magnet requires the student to stretch academically, complete homework in all classes, and meet high expectations in behavior.
