Is now available in Itunes & Stitcher. We would love to know what you think, so leave us a review and rating on ITunes!

Welcome to Season 3 of The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom. This season we are cross referencing Norms and Nobility (by David Hicks) with The Great Tradition (by Richard Gamble). Hopefully, this journey will be fruitful in understanding the references made by Hicks bringing all of us deeper into the Classical Tradition.

In this episode, we explore a new option for high school students: The Classical Learning Test. From their “About” Page, you can learn more about the mission and the test itself. If you look closely at the Board of Academic Advisors members, you will see a couple of The Classical Homeschool alums: Mr. Greg Wilbur and Mrs. Angelina Standford . 

The Classic Learning Test (CLT) invites students to wrestle with works of the greatest minds in the history of Western thought across literary and mathematical content. Rich material reflecting both theistic and secular perspectives benefits and enriches the student in the test-taking process. Among standardized college entrance exams, the CLT provides the most accurate and rigorous measure of academic formation, accomplishment, and potential. ” (From the CLT Company page)

 

“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV
