Join us for a day with Dr. Christopher Perrin of Classical Academic Press and ClassicalU.com, an online learning community for teachers and parents.
Dr. Perrin will talk about how the liberal arts are an education that is freedom and justice for all mankind. We will talk about the Socratic method of teaching and how we can learn and engage our students. Workshops will focus on how to cultivate a close, parent-directed community of learners, why the highschool years are the most important years in a child’s education, and how literature shapes our moral imagination.
At this retreat style event, we will enjoy a leisurely lunch in a beautiful, relaxing environment where we can discuss ideas, make new friends and reconnect with others. The lunch hour will be accompanied by a stringed ensemble of local musicians.
The earlybird rate of $75 ends on October 19!

About the Calgary Classical Schole Group
Founded in 2016, and directed by Annemarie Barwich, the Calgary Classical Schole Group is a homeschooling community that employs the content of a classical curriculum and the pedagogy of restful learning embodied by the word scholé. The word scholé (pronounced skoh-LAY) comes from a Greek word that means “restful learning,” with the connotation of “contemplation,” “conversation,” and “reflection.” Their mission is to pursue deep engagement that results in enjoyable, permanent learning—that is, to bring scholé to our homeschool co-op.
