“'The value of an education is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think of something that cannot be learned from textbooks.' - Albert Einstein. The Appleby Arts Programme is approached as a means of self-discovery that result in a richer student experience, a deeper understanding and appreciation of culture and, ultimately, a higher quality of life.”
