Wouldn’t it be nice if someone designed teacher training for homeschool parents?
For dates, locations, and registration, click the button above. New events added daily.

Classical Conversations is dedicated to supporting homeschooling parents, and we do this by bringing our free signature events, called Parent Practicums, to locations all across the United States throughout the summer. As the name implies, Parent Practicums are an opportunity for parents to learn and practice teaching methods that have proven effective over time.

Practicum is our gift to you to encourage and inspire you on your homeschooling journey! Will you join us this summer?

While you learn, your children learn, too!
Affordable nursery care, play camps, geography/art camps, and writing seminars are available for children. Advance registration for camps is required and some camps fill up fast, so register online today.

What is a Practicum?
  1. A Practicum is similar to an apprenticeship. Experienced homeschool parents model how to study and teach any subject using the classical tools of learning.
  2. Parents practice, practice, practice what they have learned so that they will be able to implement their new skills at home.

Are you new to homeschooling and feeling overwhelmed?
We want to help you succeed in your home education mission. Join us this summer as experienced homeschoolers present three-day training sessions for parents. Rather than taking a well-deserved break from school and all things educational, these experienced homeschoolers begin to travel all across the United States to present three-day training sessions on the classical, Christian model.

Are you new to classical education?

Our morning sessions will unpack the classical, Christian model and allow you to practice skills for learning alongside your children at home. Afternoon sessions will go in depth with particular subjects. In both sessions, parents will have opportunities to discuss new ideas and practice their new skills.

Are you discouraged with your home school? Or wondering how you could encourage others?

In addition to providing a place to practice new teaching tools, our free Parent Practicums equip thousands of families across the nation each year with the encouragement and camaraderie they need to teach their children well.

Each Practicum is a place to connect, to question, and to gain confidence in our ability to learn and to teach our children any subject.

In 2013, Classical Conversations led hundreds of free training events for over 15,000 adults who wanted to learn more about teaching skills to their students.

Join us for 2014! These events are free for parents, but registration is required. For dates and locations, please visit our website.

We look forward to meeting you as we cultivate great conversations and practice the art of rhetoric.
