About Us

Welcome to HeightsCast, the official podcast of The Heights School! Every other week, we feature interviews with teachers and educators here at The Heights School and elsewhere, on the education and formation of the type of man you’d want your daughter to marry. Our hope is that through this medium we can enlighten, inspire, and reassure the parents and friends of The Heights community, and parents and educators throughout the world. Join us!

The Bedrock Principle of Fatherhood

Dads, how often do we try to strong arm our sons into success? Is this the best way? Even if your son achieves success, is it his win or is it yours? Join Andy Reed for a discussion of fatherhood. Learn more about what our Middle School Head refers to as the “bedrock principle” of fatherhood, the notion that you, as a father, have to accompany rather than manage your boy, and that he will draw confidence for himself from your confidence in him.

The Bedrock Principle of Fatherhood

Forming your Young Son's Conscience

This week on HeightsCast we feature a recording of our most recent Heights Lecture Series featuring Colin Gleason, who discusses the formation of conscience in the young boy. Though we focus, among other things, on the formation of the will at The Heights, the formation of a boy’s moral compass–his conscience–is equally important. The forming of a child’s conscience begins at a very early age. The peer group, school, and culture will all be factors in our children’s moral growth, but no environment will affect the bearings of conscience more than the that of the home. So how can we best train our young sons to have the knack of interpreting right from wrong, especially in today’s seemingly amoral climate? Tune in to hear Colin Gleason approach this important theme.

On "Bullying": Guiding Future Protectors through Social Difficulties

Lower School Head, Colin Gleason, addresses "bullying" in today's podcast. All acrossour fair land, schools feature "Say No to Bullying" posters in the same way that our public transit systems caution riders to "see something, say something." Our children have grown up on high alert that there is a troubled class of individuals out there--BULLIES--that is out to get them. That may be true in some sense, but Colin pushes back on the idea that every instance of aggression or lack of charity is "bullying." He offers advice for parents and schools working through tough social situations. Through out the conversation, our Lower School Head grounds his guidance in the goal of raising boys into protectors. Rather than telling young lads not to use their strength, we must channel that strength towards good, noble, and manly purposes.

Smart Phones: Why Wait When He's "The Only One."

Smart phonespresent unprecedented challenges to parents. Consequently, we are encouraged to "wait until 8th."

In this episode, Mr. Kyle Blackmer explores the virtue of order and how we, as parents partnering with teachers, can share it with our middle school boys.

Are manners stodgy vestiges of a bygone aristocratic age? At The Heights, we'd offer a resounding "no." Manners matter, and as parents and teachers, these "rules of civility" offer a great opportunity for teaching our boys virtue. Listen in to hear more.
