Disciple of Christ | Education in Virtue®
The product line for learning and living the virtues
The Disciple of Christ, Education in Virtue® product lineup is a Christian curriculum structured on the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas regarding the virtues and gifts of the Holy Spirit. It aims to provide a consistent structure for instruction on the virtues to guide in the development of habits necessary to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. By understanding the meaning of the virtues and gifts, one is better equipped to respond to God’s love and grace. Cultivating a life of virtue gives one the ability to break the pattern of sin. This curriculum emphasizes Christian discipleship as indispensable toward human flourishing and the quest for joy found only in living a virtuous life free from sin. It has been developed in response to the call for a New Evangelization, firmly conveying the reality that happiness is found in a life of holiness.
In the school setting, the call to discipleship is extended not only to the students but also to their parents, the faculty, the staff, and the administration. It is the fruit of a personal encounter with Christ which affects one’s intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social life. “The disciple of Christ must not only keep the faith and live on it, but also profess it, confidently bear witness to it, and spread it” (CCC,1816).
