The Classical Parent - Part III

Posted by Ron Gilley on Nov 11, 2019 8:49:41 AM


We continue our classical parents series this week, discussing how parents who choose a classical Christian education for their children are dedicated. The first week we established that classical parents have to be dedicated to going against the status quo in education because cCe is so different from the education most of us are most familiar with. Last week parent participation was the topic. Classical parents are dedicated to participating in their children’s education, and they are invited and encouraged to do just that in cCe schools. This week we will close out the series for now by discussing the most important of three ways classical parents are dedicated: they are dedicated to the role of the Scriptures in the education of their children.

The Classical Parent - Part II

Posted by Ron Gilley on Nov 4, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Last week we started a series about classical parents. The word we used to describe parents who choose classical Christian education for their children is dedicated. In the first installment we said classical parents are dedicated in at least three distinct ways, and we explored the first way: classical parents are dedicated in the way they buck the system, or go against the grain of modern, progressive education. This week we really begin to get to the heart of classical parents as we discuss how they are dedicated to participating in their children’s education.

The Unfulfilled Promise of Technology in Education

Posted by Ron Gilley on Oct 21, 2019 12:00:00 PM


Parents who send their children to classical schools often have to defend that decision to their siblings, their friends, and even their own parents. The conversations can be tense, and especially so if everyone involved received a free public education. It isn’t as though your friends and relations know a lot about education; it is more likely their opinions have been informed by public debate, federal initiatives, and the latest trends. If the parents defending classical are sacrificing financially to afford the education, they often find themselves doubly on the defense. Points of debate include uniforms, classroom rigor, Latin, and always, always classical education’s lack of emphasis on STEM.

You’re Studying What?

Posted by trinitas on Dec 4, 2017 8:14:52 AM


Last week I used this space to mention the kinds of colleges Trinitas alumni are attending. I also mentioned last week that we had asked our alumni in a survey last summer to tell us what they are studying or had studied in college. The reason I want to talk about our alumni’s chosen fields of study this week is not to harp on college more, but to hopefully add to the case that a classical education can be good preparation for lots of different endeavors.
