Where I have worked during my academic career, I also worked to promote philosophy in local high schools. I first got involved in such outreach when Kris Phillips and Greg Stoutenburg invited me to help with their Iowa Lyceum at the University of Iowa.
Since then I have founded a version of the Iowa Lyceum in Kentucky, named the Hilltopper Philosophy Academy (after Western Kentucky University’s demonym, the Hilltoppers). Check out the PhilToppers here!
Parents and pre-college students: if you would like to hear more about the upcoming Hilltopper Philosophy Academy, you can contact us here.
