My Personal Encounter with Classical Education

Posted by Vincent Sapitan on October 26, 2015 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

I have recently graduated from my undergraduate studies and I have been considering teaching children as my vocation.  I have observed my work experiences and notice a pattern of working with children.  I have worked with children in physical and academic settings.  There is a personally desire to take on the challenges that this field contains and the primary challenge that I have encountered is this: What is the most effective way to teach children?  Children can be a handful yet it is…

Classical Schools?

Posted by Kristi Kerr on August 18, 2014 at 10:42am 2 Comments

I'm hoping that someone here can help me.  My daughter is currently in 7th grade (homeschooled, so grade levels are a bit subjective), 13 years old, and we're looking at possibly placing her in a boarding school for high school.  In my perfect world, I'd put her in an Orthodox, all-girls, classically based school.  Apparently, that doesn't exist in the US, though, so I'm expanding my search to co-ed and Roman Catholic classical boarding schools, but I'm still having a hard time.  Does anyone…
