Classical Conversations (CC) 3-day Parent Practicum *

COST: FREE, but registration is required.   Optional camps for kids are available for a small fee.

DESCRIPTION:

This year’s theme will be “Returning to Roots and Reason.” Join veteran and new 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 the beauty and reason that can only be understood through mathematics.

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 action as we rediscover roots and reason through mathematics.

Afternoon sessions will support and encourage parents with practical information on various topics.
