Classical Conversations supports parents who desire to teach their children from a Christian curriculum in the classical method within a vibrant community. The focus of a classical education is to learn how to learn in the ways best suited to the stages of a child’s mental development. In the Grammar stage, children under age 12 in the Foundations program use fun memorization activities in History, Science, English, Latin, Geography, and Math to lay a foundation of knowledge for further learning. Students ages 9-12 participate in the Essentials program, which teaches excellent English grammar skills and lays the foundation for future foreign language acquisition. This complete language arts program includes writing instruction based on taking notes, making outlines, and writing essays on history-based themes. Students aged 12 and over in the Challenge program are challenged to deepen their understanding in Science, History, Math, Philosophy, and Literature as they hone their abilities in exposition, speaking, debate, research, and logic. In weekly seminars, directors guide a variety of activities in which students learn to integrate their knowledge across the core subjects and under the plumb line of God’s Word.
The North Reading Classical Conversations community has Foundations and Essentials programs. The Burlington community offers Foundations, Essentials, and a complete Challenge program that covers the high school years. Both communities meet on Thursdays, bringing students, parents, and trained tutors and directors together to encourage and support one another learning through art and music projects, science experiments, speeches, debates, and more, all within a Christian world-view.
