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.
K4 - 12th Grade Classical Christian Homeschool Programs:
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.
As students move into our Challenge Program and work toward becoming independent learners, they read, discuss, debate, analyze and write about award-winning literature - always within the framework of history and a biblical worldview.
Foundations Program (K4 - 6th grade)
Our Foundations Programs provide a Classical Christian community for homeschool families with students in grades K4-6th. These power-packed programs typically meet once a week for twelve weeks in the fall and twelve weeks in the winter/spring months. Based on the classical model of education, families meet weekly to introduce new memory work (or grammar of a subject) and review old memory work using Classical Conversations’ Foundations Guide as the heart of the curriculum.
A trained tutor creatively introduces the memory work and leads the classroom time. The memory work is divided into 6 subjects: timeline/history, geography, math, science, Latin, and English grammar. In addition to the memory work, students also participate in a fine arts project/lesson, a science project, and an opportunity to practice oral presentation skills each week.
Essentials Program (3rd - 6th grade)
This dynamic program provides Classical Christian community for home school families with students in grades 3rd-6th. This program, which emphasizes language and writing "grammar" while also incorporating highly-dialectic lessons, is designed to reinforce language arts and structure, writing, and arithmetic mastery.
The Essentials Program meets once-a-week for twelve weeks in the fall and twelve weeks in the winter/spring. Students meet in the afternoons after the Foundations program. A trained tutor helps strengthen the "essential" subjects of language arts and structure, writing, and arithmetic.
Challenge Program (7th - 12th grade):
Our Challenge programs provide Classical Christian community for home school families with students in grades 7th-12th. The Challenge Programs typically meet once a week for fifteen weeks in the fall and fifteen weeks in the winter/spring months.
Based on the Classical Model of education, students at this age move into the dialectic and rhetoric phases of learning. Students utilize our academically challenging curriculum, which is appropriately named the Challenge Curriculum.
This curriculum involves Saxon Math, Apologia sciences, classic literature, writing reports, debates, and much more. Student develop and strengthen the life-long learning skills of grammar, exposition, debate, logic, rhetoric, and research. This curriculum is supplemented by weekly classroom time with a trained Challenge Director/Tutor.

Offered every spring, the Stanford-10 Achievement Test is a nationally-recognized test, used by educators across the country. As a norm-referenced test, the Stanford-10 not only offers the home-educator information on their student’s achievement, it also provides comparisons based on nationwide test results. Only the parent sees the results and receives a complete test analysis.
