The Great Books Foundation is an independent, non-profit educational organization whose mission is to help people learn how to think and share ideas. Towards this end, the Foundation publishes collections of classic and modern texts for children and adults. St. Christopher students in grades 2-6 participate in the Junior Great Books Program.

Through text-based discussion and the Shared Inquiry Method, this program strengthens critical thinking and civil discourse, promotes reading and the application of literature, and provides children of all ages with a powerful instrument for life long learning. Led by parent volunteers, the Junior Great Books Program exposes kids to great and diverse literature, and provides a forum for dialogue among participants.

Junior Great Books meets from January through March on Wednesday mornings before school.
