How do I get on a waitlist...? I tried hard to get in this year and the director never did touch base with me. I don’t want my son to miss out again next year.
Does your child belong to a music program? We would love for you to take a look at Academy For The Arts.

I have been trying to post Links from Classical Conversations Website, to our Scheduled Events. Could Admin please post them? Info Meeting- October 12 Open House- October 17
Many of us enjoyed the first Classical Education Simplified Conference in Pineville held last summer. It was like a reunion- learning and visiting with friends! It was very well done-- from speakers to vendors to fellowship. This year, some of our favorites, Andrew Pudewa and Christopher Perrin, will be back to inspire, educate and entertain us. We are very excited that Matt Bianco is going to be one of the speakers! Matt used to work at Classical Conversations Corporate and played a large part in academically growing our programs. While with us, he directed Challenge programs, trained other Challenge directors, and homeschooled his children using the local CC program. Matt’s love for the classical model led him to the Circe Institute where he is the Director for The Lost Tools of Writing program. He is challenging, yet fun. We had previously attempted to get Matt in Louisiana to be a speaker for one of our Practicums. Being in big demand, he was not able to come, but now we have the wonderful opportunity to hear from him at the Classical Conference. Additionally, our very own Allison Horton will be one of the presenters! Some of you had the opportunity to hear from her at the Alexandria and Baton Rouge Practicums. There is a discount on registration right now using the discount code SAVE20 for $20 off your conference ticket. Please make it a priority to attend, and to support this high-quality offering in our own area by encouraging your friends to join you! http://classicaleducationsimplified.org/registration/
Information Meeting tonight - 6:30 at Rhino Coffee

Louisiana Classical Conversations is the official page for families, directors, tutors, and students of CC for information & marketing to North and West Louisiana.

We believe that every child is uniquely and wonderfully made and that parents can be the best teachers for their children. Through our Foundations, Essentials, and Challenge programs, we support parents and students in the Shreveport region along the journey of homeschooling. We’d love to have you join us!

Mission: Share the love of learning through a Christian worldview and fellowship with other families. Our families thrive using three keys to a great education: Classical, Christian, and Community.

Operating as usual
