How does it work?

Tutor Seminars are held once a week, for 90 to 120 minutes, during the course of two 12-week semesters.

Structured learning plans are assigned for non-seminar days administered under the discretion of parents and focused on the individual need of the student.

Tutor Seminar size is capped at six students - to offer a balance in peer discussion and individualized instruction.

Tutor Seminars are designed to assist parents in the education of their children, with resources and community to offer rigorous academics while valuing family centered education.


Course material is designed by the tutor and will draw from original source documents, textbooks (online and print), and tutor designed resources. In order to minimize financial burdens and sporadic material content- tutors have organized many resource styles. However, parents may also choose to utilize their own choice in curriculum on non-seminar days and use any portion of the Tutor designed materials they deem beneficial.

Each course has an additional materials archive -The Bookshelf- to allow students deeper and individualized learning on non-seminar days. Parents are encouraged to design elements of their children's courses with the assistance of the additional materials archive.

In keeping with a classical christian tradition courses are designed to integrate the subject development through history, parallel fields of study, and biblical worldview. Fundamentally, training discerning thinkers with a breadth and depth of knowledge to serve in the Kingdom.


Parent's Role

Parents are the primary instructors, guides, and organizers of their children's education.

To that end every course emphases family-centric learning, while seeking to provide every possible tool for all learning styles and interests. Parents are invited, but not required, to invest in community activities and lessons in areas of expertise and interest.

A parent with a skill that enriches course work may wish to offer a single activity.

A parent with a particular interest, such as chess, sports, dance, music, etc. is invited to invest with more regular meetings in a club fashion.

A parent with a passion outside of teaching may wish to invest with their talents in other capacities.
