Frequently Asked Questions

What does the name Anthropedia mean?

Our name literally means "educating the human being." It is a combination of the Greek term anthropos meaning human being, and the Greek term -pedia (paideia) that is an education that cultivates the physical, spiritual, and mental development of the whole person. Paideia is the root of the liberal arts or humanities of our times.
