Children are taught from an early age to always tell the truth, so it must be confusing to young adults today to live in a world where misinformation can be spread so easily and facts are often diminished. There is an opportunity to help young women grasp that a better understanding of self will provide a more focused lens through which they can relate to the world when they graduate.
“Veritas,” the Latin word for “truth,” is central to the Dominican order, and at Flintridge Sacred Heart, there is a vigilant commitment to the pursuit of truth. Teachers and administrators stir a deeper and fuller understanding of truth with the girls, be it in their studies, their faith, their relationships, or their individual identity. The college-level research program, as well as other teachings that develop critical thinking skills, allow young women to better understand themselves and to engage with the world confidently, actively, and safely.
Our faith lives centered around becoming the best versions of ourselves, not trying to fit into a box of what we thought was holy but living boldly, wildly and happily.
