What: APU’s University Libraries' Educational Programming hosts Classical Conversations: Parent Practicum. During this three-day event, local homeschooling families explore the classical model of education and find tools to enhance learning. Classical Conversations is a Christian organization that provides curriculum and training for a structured, classical homeschool education. The practicums comprise parent conferences, providing participants with training in the classical model and various subjects. This year's focus is "Unlocking Language: The Art of Grammar."

Who: Local homeschooling families, and parents and educators interested in homeschooling

Why: This event targets those interested in giving children a classical education. At the practicum, participants may join a community, get advice from long-time homeschool parents, and find tools to enrich the education journey. APU annually hosts Classical Conversations: Parent Practicums.

“Homeschooling is an increasingly popular education option which allows parents to tailor their children's education in a variety of ways,” said Angela Ingalsbe, library coordinator to the dean's office. “Educational Programming supports private, public, charter, and parochial schools and also supports homeschoolers, a number of whom are Christians. Estimates indicate that in the U.S. alone, close to 2 million children are homeschooled.”
