Navigating History

The Art of Argumentation

“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.


Kids Camps Available - See bottom of flyer


Morning speakers 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 every subject glorifies God. The second half of the morning will be devoted to understanding the art of argumentation.

Afternoon facilitators will demonstrate practical tools for teaching investigation and debate. (Afternoon topics may vary.)
