Novem Artes Humanitatis

In Sophia Wisdom House, we aim to educate for: 1.) Well-ordered hearts, 2.) Well-formed minds, 3.) Explorative senses, 4.) Fruitful hands, comprising the four comprehensive aspects of human beings.

Therefore, we:

  1. Direct human hearts to truth, beauty, and goodness through Theologia and Philosophia,
  2. Form human minds through Moralia, Lingua, Historia, and Mathematica,
  3. Sharpen human senses to gather facts of human societies and the natural world through Scientiae Sociales and Scientiae Naturales
  4. Cultivate human hands to respond authentically to the needs of human society through Harmonia

These 9 Arts of Humanities, we call the Novem Artes Humanitatis.
