The real issue is not talent as an independent element, but talent in relationship to will, desire, and persistence. Talent without these things vanishes and even modest talent with those characteristics grows.
"It is no longer enough to be smart. All the technological tools in the world add meaning and value only if they enhance our core values, the deeper part of our heart. Acquiring knowledge is no guarantee of practical, useful application. Wisdom implies a mature integration of appropriate knowledge, a seasoned ability to filter the inessential from the essential." -Childre and Rozman- 2002
All of our educational programs exist to help every student grow and flourish in wisdom!
