To know God and to make Him known.

Cultivating Classical Parents

Conversations and resources designed to help you grow as a Christian, classical educator.

Classical Conversations believes that parents are the best educators of their children. Because of this core belief, we work hard to equip parents to home educate their children through high school. For over a decade, we have offered free three-day parent practicums in the summer to prepare parents for the upcoming school year. Now, we are pleased to launch Cultivating Classical Parents. Each week, Cultivating Classical Parents provides articles to inspire and encourage you on your homeschooling journey. Each month, we offer FREE webinars to help you further the journey. Some will offer practical tips for Latin and middle school math while others will help to refresh your mission and help you dig deeper into the ideas of Christian, classical education.

 

Our Cultivating Classical Parents summer book club conversations will be available as podcasts again this year! Click here to find the latest podcasts. You can find the schedule of release dates below.
