The Arete Project offers innovative, affordable educational programs designed to prepare young people for lives of thoughtful leadership and service to humanity.

The Blue Ridge Session

The Blue Ridge Session is an eight-week long program for college-aged women held between June and August of each year. The 2017 program will be held between late June and early August (exact dates to be announced).

Modeled on the educational philosophy of L.L. Nunn, the Arete Project features a small student body size, a rural, isolated community, and the three pillars of academics, labor and self-governance. Seminar participants also take on additional self-governance and service projects throughout the course of the year.
