Headmaster Symposium Series

Leadership in Classical Education: Shakespeare's Henry V

Classical school headmasters are invited to explore the meaning and significance of leadership through the lens of Shakespeare's Henry V. 

The classical education movement has experienced great success in transforming primary and secondary schools across the nation, but there is still much to be done. Join us as we discuss challenges, share best practices and model the education we seek to transmit, addressing the question of leadership through one of the most poignant works on the subject, Shakespeare’s Henry V.

You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the new Classical Education Graduate Program at University of Dallas and transmit your thoughts and recommendations as we continue to craft a program to support classical educators across the nation.
