A Student’s Guide to Classical Education: One Student’s K–12 Journey
This is an excellent guide for parents, students, and educators as you try to understand what to expect in a classical school. Follow Zoë as she travels from kindergarten to twelfth grade, studying grammar, Latin, logic, and rhetoric. Zoë describes the embodiment of classical education in assignments, relationships, and classrooms. Much more than charts, diagrams, and simple descriptions, this narrative will help bring the classical school experience to life. Teachers and administrators will also benefit from hearing the voice of a student who has completed this pilgrimage.
Zoë Perrin, now Zoë Endicott, grew up in a small classical school in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where she learned to love writing, reading, and classical education. She went on to study English at Grove City College, where she managed an interdisciplinary literary magazine and wrote many, many papers. Zoë is also the author of two chapbooks of poetry. She holds a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Villanova University and lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband and rescue dog, Willow. They welcomed their first child in October 2017.
