Core Beliefs

  • Bible: A Christ-centered worldview is the foundation through which all subjects must be viewed and eventually integrated.
  • Parents: Parents are a child’s first and most influential teacher.
  • Method: To recover the knowledge of how to teach and learn effectively and efficiently, using the “tools of learning” (i.e., the classical model).
  • Community: A healthy academic community provides accountability, structure, fellowship, and the ability to impact culture.
  • Mentors: An experienced, inspirational homeschooling mentor, who facilitates a weekly community gathering and models learning, offers exponential rewards in the “learning-life” of the parent and student.
  • Students: All students can learn to “train their brains to retain,” use information logically, and communicate well.
  • Skills: There aren’t any difficult subjects, just poor learning skills.
  • Curriculum: Classical Conversations provides visionary, skeletal curriculum guides and syllabi, allowing parents to continue to direct and own the details that best suit their personal priorities and student dynamics.
  • Model: By nature, a homeschool family of younger children closely resembles a one-room schoolhouse model—multiple ages under one primary teacher, the parent.
  • Resources: If one-room schoolhouse teachers could produce some of the greatest leaders with very limited resources, then so can today’s homeschool families!
