Arete (ἀρετή), an ancient Greek word implying "excellence of any kind", most aptly describes what we stand for. The notion of excellence is intimately bound up with that of fulfilment, or the art of living up to one's full potential.


Historically, these concepts are closely related to “oneness of mind, unanimity and justice” in that they all implicitly recognise knowledge as the highest form of human potential – a central capacity from which all other attributes and abilities are derived.

Arete was personified as a goddess, the sister of Homonoia (goddess of concord, unanimity, and oneness of mind), and the daughter of the goddess of justice, Praxidike.
