Classical Conversations is dedicated to supporting homeschooling
parents, and we do this by bringing our free signature events, called
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.
