The Lamp

A Holderness School journal committed to critical reflection and fostering conversation around issues connected to independent schools and education in general.

The October Seminars

Holderness is proud to join with David Carl of St. John's College, Santa Fe, to offer a series of great-book seminars to members of the Holderness community and educators from independent schools across New England.  The four texts that form the focal points of the seminars range from the classical The Republic of Plato to the naturalist meditations of Annie Dillard in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. The seminars will be simple: Mr. Carl will invite discussion with a question, and for two hours participants will exchange ideas in hopes of attaining a fuller understanding of the texts.
