Support for CLAA Mothers

For many Catholic mothers, the pursuit of the classical liberal arts is off the radar as they work daily to manage cooking, cleaning, laundry, pregnancies, nursing, meal preparation–not to mention daily prayer and academic work.  While the CLAA provides elite academic resources, they are only helpful when family life can be brought into order to […]

7 Objectives for Home School Meetings

The pursuit of Wisdom is a private undertaking and all wise men have been characterized by a love of solitude.  The idea that Socrates was a man who learned by discussion denies the obvious fact that his dialogues are not real, living dialogues but the contents of books written by Plato to be read.  The conversation of Socrates was not […]

What are the Categories?

The art of reasoning is studied in the series of books published by Aristotle, which, taken together, are called the “Organon“.  This word organon means “instrument” or “method” by which Wisdom is to be sought.  Yeah, that should seem pretty important.

The Goal of Classical Arithmetic

When our little ones set out to learn to count and perform the basic operations of Arithmetic, we don’t have many questions about why they need to learn those lessons.  It’s simple:  Everyone needs to be able to count things, add things, subtract things, multiply things and divide things. Whether it’s dollars and cents, pounds […]

New! CLAA Directed Study Programs

When we set out in 2008 to restore a true, classical liberal arts study program for Christian children, it was not our intention to publish courses for homeschool families.  We were asked to do that  while we were working to develop a private school in Charlotte, NC and we agreed to help with what was […]
