“IT IS THE GLORY OF GOD TO CONCEAL A THING: BUT THE HONOUR OF KINGS IS TO SEARCH OUT A MATTER.” Proverbs 25:2 (NKJ)
What are the benefits of classical, Christian education? How can I give my children a classical, Christian education at home?
Join veteran homeschooling parents for three days of encouragement and inspiration as we seek to understand the classical model of education and learn how to apply it in Christian homeschooling. This year we will be digging deeper into understanding the art of argumentation.
We’re excited to announce that the 2016 Parent Practicum theme will be history!
Shawn Vitu, this year's speaker, will present practical tools for giving your children a classical, Christian education at home. See the grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric stages of learning in every subject and discover how each subject glorifies God. The second half of the morning will be devoted to understanding the art of argumentation.
Shawn has an in depth history with Classical Conversations, including directing all of our Challenge levels and graduating his oldest son from Challenge IV last year. He and his wife, Linda, will provide invaluable insight and encouragement for your family to equip on your journey of home educating your children!
Afternoon sessions will demonstrate practical tools for teaching investigation and debate.
Get equipped at our on-site bookstore. You will find the resources you need to educate classically and be able to get expert advice from our book representative.
Space in student camps is limited. Registration is required for students and adults.
