Resources for Classical Homeschooling

Professional Development: Sodalitas Gathering

We encourage you to consider this annual summer training to grow in both your understanding of classical education and the Memoria Press curriculum, as well as your ability to teach and oversee courses in your homeschool. Whether you are the parent of a young child or a high schooler, all can benefit from this two day summer training. It is held annually in July in Louisville, KY on the campus of our founding school: Highlands Latin School. This is an excellent opportunity to connect with other HLN parents as well as Memoria Press homeschoolers from across the nation. Gather a few HLN friends and join us? Registration usually opens in January. Previous years’ videos are available for free here.

In seminars led by Memoria College tutors, students will engage in thoughtful discussion of the classic works of the Western tradition by great thinkers and writers such as Homer, Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, Shakespeare, Kant, Melville, and Tolstoy. Students have the option to audit classes not-for-credit at reduced prices.
