Classical Conversations, #ClassicalConvMadeKnown
* * *
NOTE: This is part of a series that began with this post: Classical Conversations: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Please take a seat and join the conversation, even if you aren’t a homeschool parent. I think you might find it interesting.
When I encountered the family who participated in Classical Conversations at the homeschool family camp in Washington state. I incorrectly assumed that this family was part of a homeschool group from the Pacific Northwest. What did I know? I had come from Virginia Beach where we had our own homeschool athletic clubs. If memory serves correctly, they even competed with local area schools. How cool is that?!
Here’s the thing about homeschooling many people don’t understand: homeschooling is vast with many “flavors.” I’m not sure when it registered for me that Classical Conversations was far more than just a group meeting in the Seattle area. Boy, I sure was wrong.
Check this out:
Did you know:
- As of January 2018, there are over 117,000 students enrolled in Classical Conversations.
- 45,000 Families are participating in Classical Conversations.
- There are over 2,500 Classical Conversations communities in all 50 states.
- Classical Conversations communities are in 22 different foreign countries.
Because I have a diverse readership here, perhaps it would be good to go back to the beginning so that those who aren’t familiar with Classical Conversations or who don’t homeschool can understand more about it.
Each of you has a personal story of why you joined. Whether your experience ended up being positive or negative, I think most parents had their children’s best interest in mind when they chose Classical Conversations. So, to help my readers and me understand more, can you tell us:
What appealed to you about Classical Conversations?
What did it offer that other programs did not have?
What end goals you were attempting to achieve by joining Classical Information?
Did the program work for you? Why or why not?
Feel free to elaborate. This is your place to share!
