If you want to meet the philosophically inclined who are curious about the world, seeking the happiness that comes from self-discovery, and are interested in exploring life’s most perplexing questions, join us!

Philosophy means "love of wisdom." It holds the key to unlocking the highest expression of ourselves and living life to the fullest. It embraces the dream of a new and better world. Through philosophy we learn how to make a real difference for positive change.

New Acropolis Boston is a modern day school of philosophy. To make a meaningful difference, we propose an integrative program of philosophy, culture and volunteering. Through the practical application of timeless wisdom, our approach encourages a better understanding of ourselves, and a great appreciation for others and the world we live in.
