Our homeschool style is *interest led* using Classical Conversations as a model. Confused? Don’t be!!
I really don’t like labels, so when people would ask what *type* of homeschool we did, I never knew what to say. The term *un-schooling* seemed to fit us the closest, but I really didn’t like the term – and it really wasn’t who we were.
In the fall of 2013 we started with a new Classical Conversations campus at a local church in PA. (yes, we live in NJ but the closet campus was in PA). It was not love at first sight, but we committed to a full year and I was convicted after that year. The girls learned SO much with the Classical model that we decided to pursue Classical Conversations again in 2014, and now we are in our third year using Classical Conversations as the base for our homeschool.
I use the core curriculum (currently Cycle 1) and build our lessons around it. Some weeks we do more science, some weeks we cover more history – but we always work on the the weekly memory work, and the girls are thriving!
This year Ken is a tutor for one of the CC classes, so Classical Conversations is truly a family affair.
