OOur Story

Classical Education Simplified became a non-profit 501(C)(3) corporation in January of 2016.

Our Story

Upon attending a conference regarding classical education, I realized how little I knew about the classical Christian model of education. I had been teaching my children utilizing this educational philosophy for about six months, yet I still could not succinctly answer “What is classical Christian education?”.  I read some articles and books about what classical education is and what it is not, but I could not actually put a definition into words. The conference I attended helped fan into flame my love for classical education. It equipped me to go deeper in my knowledge of the classical Christian model of education. It assisted me in defining classical Christian education. The conference I attended spurred me on to mine the depths and riches found amidst classical Christian education.

Classical Education Simplified was born out of a desire to further equip and educate parents in the classical Christian model of education. It was born to be a valuable resource for parents with the same mindset and questions that I experienced. Classical Education Simplified serves as a resource for parents.  How do we do this, you might ask?  Well, for the time being, we are organizing local conferences in order to further train, equip, encourage, and inspire parents in this educational philosophy.

Join us in mining the depths of classical Christian education. Truth, beauty, and virtue beckon us.
