Free 3-Day Conference for Parents on Classical, Christian Homeschooling

What is Classical Christian Education?

What are the benefits of Classical Christian Education?

How can I give my children a classical Christian education at home?

Join veteran homeschooling parents for three days of encouragement and inspiration as we seek to understand the classical model of education and learn how to apply it in Christian homeschooling. This year we will be digging deeper into understanding the art of rhetoric.
Morning speakers will present practical tools for giving your children a classical, Christian education at home. See the grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric stages of learning in every subject and discover how every subject glorifies God. The second half of the morning will be devoted to understanding the art of rhetoric.

Afternoon facilitators will demonstrate practical tools for teaching rhetoric and writing.

(Afternoon topics may vary.)

Get equipped at our on-site bookstore. You will find the resources you need to educate classically and be able to get expert advice from our book representatives.

While you learn, your children learn, too! Economically-priced day camps are available for students of all ages. Your students are sure to enjoy the group learning environment, whether they are being cared for in our nursery; playing and singing in our play camps; memorizing and drawing God’s world in our geo-drawing camps; or learning about language, writing, science, logic, debate or public speaking in our academic camps for older students. Advance registration for student camps is required. Please register online.
