We live in a world that celebrates mediocrity and egalitarianism, where no one can judge anyone, and anyone’s truth is as good as anyone else’s. A classical Christian school that proclaims Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, and expects excellence in all aspects of life, is at risk of attracting parents and students who fall prey to perfectionism and miss out on grace. My guests, Ambrose Upper School Dean Chris Browne and 15-year Admissions Director Susan Herrick, explore this tension and share steps to keep striving for excellence and grace in balance.
