A New Homeschool Support Service in Philadelphia:
“Classical Conversations” is a program designed to be an educational support service to homeschool families. Participating families meet once a week for 2 twelve week sessions. (One in the Fall and one in the Spring.) During the sessions kids participate in creative activities, games, and songs to help them memorize important information about our country and the world. Subjects covered include History, Geography, Science, Bible, Math, Latin, Art, and Music. Kids also have the opportunity to practice presentation skills. This year will be the first year the support service exists in Philadelphia. Here’s the basic information:
