Excerpt from Introduction:
Thou hast made us for Thyself, and we cannot find rest until we find it in Thee. — ST. AUGUSTINE. These familiar words, which show the purpose of our creation and the true goal of life, also point to the end and aim of all sound education. Education is complete and ideal only as it trains and develops the whole being in the manner intended by the Creator. True education will embrace instruction and guidance in Religion, Science, History, Literature and Art, for these represent the child's entire nature and so cover the full range of his possibilities.
