With the nature of the program being highly personal, we sought a self-contained space which naturally draws people together. It’s the place where everyone eats together, learns together, studies and works together. It’s the place that allows everyone the unique privilege of doing life as a family.
With the nature of the program being classical, we looked for a place that exudes an old-world charm. As a beginning, we have chosen to land at YMCA Blue Ridge, North Carolina.
With the nature of the program being both contemplative and innovative, we needed a geographical setting where the location itself seems to give one permission to dream. And we found it in Black Mountain, North Carolina.
