We have just released a special “Homeschool Trailer” with Aaron and Chad Burns explaining how their homeschooling experiences prepared them to create a feature film like Beyond the Mask. Encouraging commentary is given by four national leaders (and homeschool advocates). We think you will agree that this trailer will be a blessing and encouragement to homeschoolers everywhere.

What is Classical Conversations?
Classical Conversations (CC) is a Christian model of Classical education used in homeschool communities. It seeks to equip parents and students with the Classical tools of learning using a Biblical worldview. What is classical education? What is CC? How can it help me as a homeschooling parent? All parents are welcome to come to learn more about the Classical method of education and how CC can equip you to use this approach. Challenge your children to reach their potential academically and spiritually by giving them the tools for learning.
In every subject, God has hidden His truth and beauty. It is our pleasure as students and teachers to discover Him as we learn. Our studies should also prepare us to reason clearly, speak eloquently, calculate accurately, and write convincingly so that we have the ability to make God known to others.
We believe that each child is uniquely and wonderfully made, and the people who know and love a child best (the parents) are the ones most motivated to help that child succeed. Within the framework of a biblical worldview, Classical Conversations teaches parents the Classical model: the tools for learning any subject.
The Classical model divides learning into three stages:
1) The Grammar Stage----memorizing facts
2) The Dialectic Stage---discovering how the facts relate
3) The Rhetoric Stage---applying the facts.
The Bible refers to these stages in Proverbs 24:3-4 as knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. How can I give my children a better education than I received? CC connects families with others who homeschool using the Classical model. They become companions who can share the journey.
CC also connects families with experienced and trained mentors who offer leadership. Students enjoy their community of friends on the same journey. They encourage one another in their studies. Parents and students meet one day per week for 12 weeks in the fall and 12 weeks in the spring of each school year. Each community consists of programs that are facilitated by trained parent-directors.
Seminars are led by trained parent-tutors who model the Classical tools of learning. Classical Conversations has developed three programs: FOUNDATIONS, ESSENTIALS, and CHALLENGE, roughly corresponding to the grade school, middle school, and high school years.
