You can homeschool. We can help.

At Classical Conversations we believe that you are the best educator for your children. We have been partnering and equipping families since 1997 through our classical, Christian communities.

We’re the homeschool program that helps you cultivate an inquisitive, thoughtful child through an intentional, community-based approach. Learning together with families like yours, you’re equipped with the tools and support to teach a Christ-centered worldview that’s rooted in the classical model.  

Gordon College is a distinctive blend: an outstanding nationally ranked liberal arts institution that retains its roots in the Christian faith, a strong residential community, and a splendid location—just north of the intellectual hub of Boston, and right near the shoreline of Cape Ann. Our faith is the foundation for all that we are—individually, collectively and institutionally. With a spirit of support and collaboration, we are set free in Christ to think critically, engage new ideas and pursue truth. Find out more at the links below.

History

Looking for high-quality and fun history education for your children? You've come to the right place! Homeschooling your children is surprisingly easy with Notgrass History.

 

Notgrass History helps children learn through engaging lessons, beautiful photos and illustrations, primary source documents, inspiring literature, and creative activities. Our curriculum works for your family, whether you are teaching one child or multiple ages together.

The wheel of time turns slowly at Norlands Living History Center.  For nearly 50 years, Norlands has allowed visitors to experience what life was like in rural Maine during the 1800s.  Our visitors learn as everyone did back then - in a one room schoolhouse, at the knee of an experienced homemaker, by working the land, and by coming together in community.  Those that come to Norlands soon realize that it is more than a place.  Norlands is about values.  For 2022, Norlands' guiding principle is Maine's motto: Dirigo - "I lead".  That call to lead was born into the Washburn generation that settled, built, and named Norlands.  Their leadership was underpinned by strong values:

 

Honesty | Integrity | Faithfulness

Persistence | Self-Reliance | Courage

Scholarship | Ingenuity | Innovation | Entrepreneurship

Community | Civic-mindedness | Duty

and always, Family.

 

At Norlands, we still hold those values and strive to articulate them through learning experiences that last a lifetime.  Please mention this ad when you schedule your homeschool group tour and receive $10 off the total price of admission for your group.
