All education is value driven. Regardless of a claim to be neutral, all education has an end or “good” in mind. At Mirus, we believe the mind and the affections need to be directed toward the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. The Christian worldview holds that God is the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. Through diligent and honest search, we discover more of His wonder and more of our need for Him. In this, the educational enterprise is not an empty exercise of becoming clever or “practical,” but rather it is an endeavor to expand one’s heart and mind to be transformed by the wonder of God. Teaching from the Trinitarian worldview, Mirus Academy understands that all subjects, if truly mastered, point back to the Trinity.
   The world does not need more students without chests, it needs more students humbled by the wonder of God.
“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise.”
              - C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man
