Is homeschooling the right choice for you and your child? We’ve put together an extensive list of homeschooling pros and cons to help you get a better understanding of the homeschooling program.
Looking for some home education encouragement, how-to guides, or classical education information? Then read on. At present, our UK team is very small, and we do not have the capacity to maintain the wonderful blog that we wish to. On this page, therefore, we have preserved a handful of CC testimonies from UK families and a couple of older articles that we especially want to flag.
While we may not be writing many new articles, however, the US team has really diversified their blog of late, which now includes not only classical education philosophy but also many practical articles with information on grading students, exploring missions, keeping a transcript and more. Some content, of course, is US-specific, but much of it is still helpful, and we encourage you to have a look through it by clicking the button below.
Choosing a homeschool program can be a daunting task.
With the smorgasbord of options available—ranging from online classes through a local public school to unschooling to classical education (and many gradations in between)
The greatest gift parents could ask for, when approaching their student’s high school years is wisdom. You’ll know you’ve found wisdom regarding your teen’s education when you answer these two questions: “What are the best goals for my child?” and “What are the best means to achieve those goals?”
Parents who are planning to homeschool their young children are often eager to get a jumpstart on the process by implementing a rigorous preschool curriculum. This is especially tempting when the grandparents are a little skeptical. In this case, the allure of workbooks and formal academics can be irresistible; they prove to us and the world that our little ones have accomplished something quantifiable, and it can be satisfying to report that they are on their way to the kindergarten workbook well ahead of schedule.
What is the first thing you picture when you hear the word rhetoric? Most people I asked recently had one of two images in mind. At best, people thought of a compelling commercial. At the worst, people envisioned a slick politician either manipulating an audience through smooth talk or lying outright.
Today, more than 105,000 students from over 43,000 families participate in Classical Conversations programs in almost 2,500 communities. These communities are led by over 15,000 contracted directors and tutors and are located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and 15 foreign countries.
As Classical Conversations began to expand outside the central North Carolina area, Leigh developed the idea of local communities led by directors and tutors for the three programs: Foundations, Essentials and Challenge. The contract workers received extensive training and resources to better offer the Classical Conversations programs in their local communities.
