Classical Conversations is a network of homeschool communities providing classical Christian academic programs, events and services to home school parents of K4-12th Grade children. Based in Sierra Vista, Cochise County, Arizona, our purpose is to lead the home-centered education movement by equipping parents and students with the classical tools of learning needed to discover the order and beauty of God’s creation and to inspire others to do the same. Classical Conversations’ programs model the three stages of classical learning—grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric. Using age appropriate methods, children are taught the tools for studying any subject.
Across the United States, Classical Conversations Communities exist to complement your home-centered education and connect you with like-minded families. Each community is facilitated by a trained parent-director, and classes are led by trained parent-tutors who model the classical tools of learning. Tutors have the privilege of encouraging students toward becoming lifelong learners while also encouraging parents in the classical teaching of their children.
Our three curriculum programs support your home-centered education by providing teaching tools for you, the parent, and quality educational materials for your student. Our guides, books, timeline cards, and multimedia resources have been thoughtfully crafted and selected.

The math, science, literature, Latin, history, geography and fine arts studied in our Foundations Program represent a broad and interesting body of information. Our Essentials Program students work toward mastering English language skills and improving their writing technique.

"I have three daughters, and my oldest is beginning her second year with CC. We were standing in line to buy a notebook, and my four- year-old, not enrolled, recites that that the front of her notebook is reflecting and refracting the light. At this point, my six-year-old spouts off, "You are missing one!" The four-year-old looks up and smiles and says, "Spectrum!" They burst into giggles and make voices like the gentleman on the Memory Work Resource CD and recite the question and answer from Cycle 2. With CC as my safety net, I feel more confident to homeschool all my girls. Thank you CC team!"
