Founded in 1997, Classical Conversations is an international home education program built on a Christian, classical foundation. Classical Conversations of Willow Springs began offering classes in 2014 and currently serves around 50 students K-12 from a wide geographical area. Director Jade Bressler explained, “One day a week we meet together and tutors model for students and parents how to complete the rest of the week's academic studies. It is a flexible program where the parent as the primary teacher can make adjustments tailored to their child. It gives families support, encouragement, accountability and much more as we educate our children.” Fall semester classes began Monday, August 24.
