The Motto and Crest
It began with a motto. In keeping with having a classical curriculum and teaching Latin beginning in the third grade, we chose Sapere Aude, which means “Dare to Know“. We want the children to be confident learners and not be shy about exhibiting and using their knowledge. Staying with the theme of courage, the Lion seemed a natural choice. It also provides a fantastic team name, the GCP Lions, that we can use for sports and competitions. Along similar lines, Pillars signify Constancy, Torches indicate Zeal, and the Leaves stand for Strong and Lasting Friendships. The Book? Well, that speaks for itself!
