Classes 2017-2018

My! How we have grown!! When we started two years ago, we were begging people to take a chance on our program because we thought we had a good idea that we wanted to share, but there's really nothing like Classical Connections out in the market today. It was hard to explain our goal and mission, but we're thankful that some people took a chance. Two years later, we've grown 7 times our starting size and we have wait lists for 6 years down the road. What a fun and special ride!
We're still having fun and we're still showing kids that learning can be a lifelong love. We ask a lot of our students, but amazingly, they love doing it. They're doing good and hard things. And we think it's awesome.

Summer Camp 2017 CULTURE CAMP

In our "odd years", we do Culture Camps where our curriculum focuses on teaching the students about either different countries or time periods in history. Our younger campers studied Russia, Kenya, China, and Guatemala. Our older students studied parts of the four time periods that most classical schools rotate through in studies of history: Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Middle Ages, and American Colonization.
Each day, all of our science activities, art activities, outdoor activities, basically everything revolved around our country or time period for the day, so there was lots of variety and fun!

Fast and Furious Year

We have had a fast and furious year so far! It's hard to believe that we're past Spring Break and looking forward to Summer Camp!

Our classes this year have been full and filled with lots of fun and learning! We work so hard in our classes and move so quickly that we rarely have time for pictures, but here are a couple of our students getting our beds ready to plant our vegetable gardens after Spring Break.

We work on our vegetable gardens during our Nature Study time (among other things!), but we also have lots of fun playing our grammar games, reading good books, writing fables and fairy tales, memorizing Scripture and poetry, and discussing engaging topics.

If you're interested in joining our classes, email with:

  1. your child's name 
  2. your child's Kinder Start year (or current grade if he's older)
  3. your child's school
  4. your name
  5. your email address
  6. your address
  7. your phone number 

We have registration waitlists for kinder classes as far away as 2021, so join the list now for the best chance at joining classes! The future class waitlists function primarily as a planning tool so we know how many classes to plan for, but they also get you first dibs on signing up when the time comes to open registration for your child's first CC class (1st grade).

Summer Camp 2017 INFO

Summer Camp 2017-- June 26-29, 2017

The dates have been selected, and we're excited about what we've planned for this summer! On odd years, we do CULTURE CAMPS. We do the same fun activities as our previous camps--art, science, reading, writing, outdoor activities, Nature Study, and more-- but each day's theme revolves around different cultures and their cultural characteristics.
It's hard to explain how much FUN we have--almost as hard as it is to explain how much the students LEARN! Parents love how much the kids' minds are engaged, and the students don't realize how much they're learning because they're so busy having fun.

1st and 2nd graders have fun studying different countries and cultures each day.
1st/2nd Grade meets from 9am - 12pm

3rd and 4th graders have fun studying different historical time periods each day.
3rd/4th Grade meets from 1pm - 4pm

Registration will begin in March for currently registered families, and then will open up mid-March to those subscribed to our email list. Camp cost is $150 for the week.

Camp 2016

Camp is over and done for the 2016 Summer. It was FULL of fun, laughter, learning, squealing, playing, and just a general GOOD TIME. It's truly amazing to see the students have SO MUCH FUN while they're learning and shaping their minds. You may not be able to tell from the pictures how much they learned, but here are some of the things the students accomplished academically during this week:

  • memorized a poem
  • read 5 classic books/stories
  • wrote their own version of a fable or fairy tale
  • performed 5 science experiments
  • did 5 different art projects
  • grammar games and practice
  • outdoor exploration
It really is a joy to see students love learning. Kids are capable of so much, and watching them achieve those things is both encouraging and humbling. Can't wait for Summer Camp 2017--we have some new and fun things already in store!
