To know God and to make Him known.

Classical Conversations Capstone Cruise

May 4th, 2020 to May 8th, 2020

Come Sail with Your Crew!

2020 is the year for you to come and join Classical Conversations Capstone Cruise!

The Capstone Cruise is the largest annual gathering of CC families from around the country. Classical Conversation’s Capstone Cruise is for all our community members- not just graduates, competitors, and their families. In fact, last year we had over 750 people from around the country join us.

In 2019, families with Foundations age students enjoyed meeting other Classical Conversations students from around the country. Challenge age students enjoyed nightly activities, a special protocol dinner, and a dance. Graduates enjoyed nightly activities, protocol, the dance, and a sail and snorkel excursion sponsored by Thrivent Federal Credit Union on a privately chartered catamaran. Parents enjoyed nightly chats poolside with other classically educating parents, special insights into Leigh Bortin’s new math program, and panel discussions regarding classical education through the college years with representatives from New Saint Andrews College. Additionally, Moms were able to enjoy morning Bible study time, special gift exchanges, and a craft night sponsored by Thrivent Federal Credit Union.

The 2020 Capstone Cruise team is already busy planning fun activities for your entire family. We can’t wait to have you join us!

In order to participate in Classical Conversations Capstone cruise, to keep the cost low, and to ensure our group is well connected onboard, you MUST book your cruise through our cruise agent and CC mom extraordinaire Amy True. We have the lowest available fee (other than Carnival’s non-refundable, Internet Special fee). All fees go directly to the price of the cruise. There is an additional $25 per person fee for commemorative t-shirts, lanyards, and beach bags, which is already included in the cruise fare. For graduates, all caps, gowns, and diplomas are included in this year’s price.
