Classical Conversations supports homeschooling parents by cultivating the love of learning through a Christian worldview in fellowship with other families. Our families thrive using three keys to a great education: Classical, Christian, and Community.
Classical education is ideally suited to a child’s natural learning style. The classical model divides the learning process into three stages: grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric. In the grammar stage, children devour facts. In the dialectic stage, children ask many questions as they sort and evaluate these facts. In the rhetoric stage, teenagers synthesize their knowledge and apply it.
From beginning to end, the Classical Conversations curriculum is founded on the Bible as the inerrant Word of God. Classical Conversations teaches that all subjects are not only interconnected but that God is the Author and Creator of each subject. Each subject informs us more about the true nature of God, and a better understanding of God informs us about each subject that is taught.
Classical Conversations plants and supports local communities that meet once a week across the United States and in several other countries. Being part of a like-minded and committed community provides parents and students encouragement, fellowship, and accountability.
The purpose of Classical Conversations® is to lead the home-centered education movement by teaching parents and students the classical tools of learning so that they can discover God’s created order and beauty— and as a result— enable others to do the same.
Classical Conversations fulfills its mission and purpose by establishing and supporting Classical Conversations communities around the world, and by empowering parents in the classical, Christian teaching of their children through Parent Practicums. We enable parents everywhere to equip their children with a Christ-centered worldview and the classical “tools of learning” in order to impact the world for God’s glory.
Classical Conversations provides confident, dependable Christian leadership in the home-centered, classical education movement. We provide structured weekly classical, Christian communities that hone students’ academic and classical skills of recitation, logical thinking, and persuasive rhetoric. We provide annual Parent Practicums globally that empower parents to confidently teach any academic subject classically. Classical Conversations provides a Christ-centered curriculum framework that engages the current culture in which we live. We promise to grow alongside home educating families, constantly looking for ways to improve ourselves. We seek to partner with like-minded businesses in order to provide quality products and services for home educating families.
