The Blog

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.

All those things are true, but unless you are already a Latin enthusiast, chances are you don’t care.

Instead, here are 3 practical reasons why Latin can benefit the average person...

What is Rhetoric?

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.
