A New Apology for Classical Christian Education

In this seminar I present a defense of Classical Christian Education that features seven reasons why it is the best educational approach for our sons and daughters: 1) It provides a coherent means of understanding God, the world and ourselves 2) It cultivates the human 3) It develops and imparts powers (arts) to students 4) It cultivates a love of beauty 5) It develops character. 6) It trains leaders. 7) It cultivates community. I will also refute several familiar objections to CCE such as: 1) CCE is elitist. 2) CCE is old-fashioned and out of touch. 3) CCE was discredited by the educational establishment 100 years ago. 4) Studying classical subjects like Latin are a waste of time in this cultural moment. The goal of this seminar is to give participants a clear, concise and cogent defense of CCE that presents is superior qualities and refutes common objections.
