Dear Academy Families,
I get to sit in on our wonderful Academy classes whenever I want (and even get to teach our students, in 10th grade English this year and with Senior Theses). I can affirm that the intellectual energy is palpable and exciting, from both students and teachers!
That’s one reason we began our series of Faculty Lectures in the last few years, so that other adults (like you!) could enjoy the amazing experience of our teachers’ intellectual passions. So I encourage you to try to attend one or more of the remaining three lectures in the spring semester:
Wednesday, January 15: Mr. Nick Dent
Lecture Title: “An Extreme Beginner’s Introduction to Number Theory”
Thursday, Feb. 27: Dr. Gordon Harvey
Lecture Title: “Making a Renaissance Epic: Heaven, Hell, and Chutzpah at BUA”
Monday, April 7: Dr. Sarah Dawson
Lecture Title: “Water in the Roman Republic: Sanitation, Medicine, and Murder”
Just from these titles, I think you can feel the heat rising on the page. So go to our BUA homepage online, and register for one or more of these great evenings. You can even bring your friends.
Hope to see you there!
James S. Berkman
Head of School
