Philosophy

The Pensacola School of Liberal Arts acknowledges that every child possesses intrinsic worth and dignity as a person. This existential fact demands a curriculum broad enough to allow the student experiences, through education, that behold a whole view of life, and encourages in depth factual pursuits for developing lifelong learners. We believe that a quality education helps the student acquire the insights to know from whence they come—and where they are going. Thus, inspires young individuals to think critically and perceive his/her/their role within the ever evolving human experience.

SoLA commits itself to carrying the founder, Mr. Holston’s, educational mission of  “The student becomes the teacher!” We believe that his timeless mission encapsulates the core values we strive to instill in today’s students: self-knowledge, respect, and responsibility. The development of an inner-directed student requires an awareness for learning styles, personal responsibilities, and a clear recognition of the consequences of action. SoLA believes in building a strong foundation of a Liberal Arts education free from the vortex of politics.
