Homeschool In Community

Homeschooling For Yourself ... But Not By Yourself

What is Classical Conversations?

Classical Conversations is a national classical and Christian homeschooling program seeking to empower parents. Classical Conversations meets once a week, providing weekly accountability, encouragement, and structure that supplement and support what is being taught at home. On a weekly basis, we offer Foundations, Essentials, and Challenge programs in local communities. Find out how Classical Conversations can help you redeem your own education so that you can do the hard, but rewarding work of teaching your own children.

Classical Conversations can be used as a base curriculum or a supplemental curriculum. Parents using various methods such as Charlotte Mason, Eclectic, Unschooling, or Unit Study.

Foundations is for ages 4-12. We meet weekly for 24 weeks each year. We work on memory work in history, math, Latin, English grammar, science, and geography. We also do science experiments and fine arts projects together as well as oral presentations. Students are placed in classes of 8 with a paid tutor who is also a homeschooling mom.

Essentials is for 3rd-6th graders. We meet in the afternoon after Foundations from 1:00-3:00. We spend 45 minutes on intensive English grammar, 30 minutes on Math games, and 45 minutes on Institute for Excellence in Writing assignments. The kids love it, and the parents have been delighted with the boost that Essentials provides to their children’s academics.

Challenge is for 7th-12th graders. Students meet with a tutor weekly for 30 weeks each year to study core subjects such as literature, history, science with labs, math, logic, debate, theology, geography, and two foreign languages. Emphasis during class time is on discussion, presentation and lab work with students taking responsibility for additional research, reading, and assignments throughout the week.

Meet Jessica

Jessica and her husband live in Dubuque, Iowa with their two daughters and did not want to leave the education of their children to others. Together they decided to homeschool in the classical Christian tradition. While reviewing curriculums Jessica found Classical Conversations, and after a few months of research she fell in love with the curriculum, community, and accountability. As a family, they joined a Classical Conversations community in 2012 and love how the subjects are integrated and centered on a biblical worldview.
Jessica’s goal is to bring like-minded families together for fellowship and accountability.
