There approach to education is classical in nature. There signature humanities program. By the way, portsmouth Abbey also has a similar classical program.
Maybe someone can ask hazmat to post the article on BS. I will not without his permission but, I found it interesting in that it points out how some schools are offering many courses for the interest of students and producing students with "holes" in their education. This will not happen at schools like SPS and Portmouth Abbey for that matter. Actually this is also a benefit of small schools.
Prettyckitty, why apply to SPS? You will need to explore why besides its popularity that makes it right for you. By applying and maybe attending because it's popular may end up making for miserable 4 years. SPS is not for everybody, no school is for everybody.
On the downside, SPS is rather liberal when letting students figure out their own study hours. Now this may seem innocuous for many of you, it may spell disaster for the kid that needs more supervision. Smart kids do get off track.All of these bs can be none to kind for students who cannot keep up. For most of you, you will be shocked by the amount of work required in bs. Just the amount of writing required is intimidating for many.
