College Preparedness

Does the Classical Conversation’s program help prepare my child for college?

Classical Conversations graduates have been admitted to more than 200 unique colleges and universities in 40 of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and two foreign countries.

“I feel like it [Classical Conversations] allowed me to explore the depths of subjects and not just skim over them. I really got a chance to understand and form an opinion on subjects. The program taught me to love to think and reason.”
—Alumni Quote

“Classical Conversations is a very rigorous program, but the outcome upon graduating is extremely rewarding. Contrary to most schools today, in Classical Conversations, a student is taught not what to learn, but how to learn.”
—Alumni Quote

Our communities honor the spiritual leadership of the Church and encourage active participation.

“Classical Conversations taught me to love and pursue knowledge wholeheartedly. It also taught me to seek evidence to support my own beliefs but also to try to understand and appreciate opposing beliefs.”—Alumni Quote

Our families have diverse interests and are invested in their communities.

“CC produces young men and women who can think critically, understand the effect of worldview, and are aware and connected to global issues.”—Alumni Quote

Since Classical Conversations exists as a complementary service to homeschooling families, parents retain the primary responsibilities of teaching and recording their student’s progress. A student’s academic success and readiness for college depends not solely on participation in CC’s Challenge program but also on the motivation and priorities at home. However, more and more families are choosing to homeschool through high school using Classical Conversations Challenge program because they find it to be excellent for cultivating wisdom and virtue in a student’s life while preparing them academically for college.
