Consulting

The Classical Academic Team of consultants specializes in helping classical schools, homeschools and organizations successfully implement a vibrant classical education characterized by restful learning or scholé. Starting a classical school is hard; growing it takes sustained work–and most of us have never started a school, nor even received a classical education. Giving a classical education to any student–either in a school or homeschool setting–is challenging to anyone new to classical tradition of education. What to do first? What should your priorities be? What are the principles of teaching in the classical tradition? How do we ensure that students delight in their studies? How do we train new teachers? The list could continue.

Our team of consultants have been where you are, and have gradually learned (often the hard way) how to address these questions wisely. Read the biographies of our consultants, then choose one who will be well suited to help you at your present point of need. Our consultants will be glad to give you twenty minutes of time (free of charge) to hear your concerns and explore with you how we might be of help.
