Humanities is the classic liberal arts study of human culture as diplayed in literature, art, philosophy, history, and language. The Humanities program introduces students to a core curriculum of Great Books, offering a rich and flexible preparation for life by equipping students to read, write, and think critically from a Christian worldview.

The objectives of the Humanities program are to:
- Provide an educational forum for students to read and discuss Great Books.
- Develop practice and proficiency in the disciplines of reading, writing, critical thinking, and library research.
- Develop a foundational understanding of influentual currents of human thoughts and creative expression represented in literature, art, philosophy, history, and language.
