Symposium

NATIONAL CLASSICAL EDUCATION SYMPOSIUM
February 25-27, 2019

The National Classical Education Symposium is designed to enrich our understanding of the classical, liberal arts in both the theoretical and practical dimensions of curriculum and pedagogy. Beginning with curated presentations from select scholars and practitioners, we provide school leaders and master teachers with some of the best thought on the subjects under consideration. We also explore edifying texts as ‘common readings’ for seminars, which enables us to renew our efforts around good conversations, in light of the Great Conversation. Finally, we provide the forum for discussions of how to revitalize our teaching as practitioners of the long-standing tradition of classical education.

Classical Education Association:
To serve our compatriots in classical education across the country–beginning with classical charter schools–we will invite other educators to participate in the keynote and full audience programs of the Symposium, as well as the stimulating conversations of the seminars, in hopes of demonstrating GH’s hospitality and genuine interest in the intellectual activities of the classical education movement. Even as GH leaders and teachers begin to explore how to revitalize the GH model, we will invite our guests to participate in other programming, designed and delivered by members of the Classical Education Association.
