Learning Is A Voyage, You Can Guide the Way

Classical Conversations provides the support and relationships you need as a homeschool parent.

Our Programs

“We provide a platform that parents can use to envision the future and holistically develop their children, allowing them to truly thrive.”

Classical Conversations offers programs for all ages and help you on this education journey so you and your children can thrive.

Scribblers

Scribblers simply continues what you have already started at home through providing hands-on practical tools that help you foster a love of learning in your children. It is not a community or tuition-based program, but instead a collection of at-home resources for children ages three to eight. The resources offered through Scribblers are intended to spark curiosity and a sense of wonder in young children while instilling in them a love for the good, true, and beautiful.

Foundations

Foundations is a grammar-stage program for children ages five to twelve and their parents. The Foundations Curriculum outlines a comprehensive core of grammar for history, science, English, Latin, geography, a timeline, and math. Students will encounter these facts again later in the subsequent programs. This curriculum clearly leads parents through a classical education at home, week by week. Our Foundations program meets once a week for a community day where memory work gets introduced, and hands-on science and fine art projects are done. Learning together allows for friendships to be formed with parents and kids for encouragement, growth and life-giving relationships.

Essentials

The Essentials program is a bridge between the grammar and dialectic arts and prepares students for the Challenge program. This power-packed course guides students ages 10-12 and their parents through the foundational principles of language structure and analysis, the structure and style of writing and arithmetic speed and accuracy. Our essentials classes follow the Foundation program on community days and is comparable to the one-room schoolhouse, with all children doing the same thing regardless of age. This encouraging environment allows students to be servants to each other without focusing on age, grade, or ability levels. Students emerge prepared to tackle foreign languages, essays, and pre-algebra confidently when these simple – yet often neglected – skills are mastered.

Challenge

Our robust Challenge program stands out from other classical, Christian programs or co-ops for two reasons: First, a single mentor directs all subjects. Second, students learn the unity of all subjects. In each program, one highly qualified, experienced homeschooling parent-director partners with students and their parents as a yearlong mentor in all subjects. Dialectic and rhetoric students need help understanding core subjects, equipping them to discover that all knowledge works together in an indivisible “universe” rather than a disconnected “multiverse.” We offer six Challenge levels that center around the timeless learning tools of the classical model.

The themes emphasized in the Classical Conversations Challenge programs address the relationship between knowledge and virtue. Both are essential elements of a good education. Our children are not machines to be measured and prodded; rather, they are God-designed humans that require tending and nurturing. Education that aims to cultivate a soul includes lessons that point the student toward virtue
