Cheiron School Poster
Cheiron School is named for the Centaur “Cheiron”, one of the immortal Greek Gods who received instructions in Music and Medical arts from Apollon and Hunt from Artemis. He was also known as the first among centaurs and highly revered as a teacher and tutor. His feats included giving instructions in Martial arts to Hercules, Medical arts to Aesculapius, and Equestrian arts to Castor.
