Study Great Books 

Study the classic works of Homer, Virgil, and Dante with other kindred spirits in a very non-intimidating way. We discuss them online once a month (or face to face in some areas).

What are “Seminar Courses” like?

The Seminar Course utilizes a combination of prerecorded lectures, resources, and books--plus weekly, live discussion sessions. The live sessions will be recorded, plus there will be recorded lectures either available free from Youtube, or they will be considered part of the curriculum which you need to purchase (e.g. Teaching Company dvds). The live, online sessions are led by one of our tutors who has studied the materials and loves this subject, and most often will have expertise in the area. There will also be opportunities for the students to make their own presentations of what they've been learning. The grading of assignments is done by the parent, but most of the seminar courses will include regular online quizzes over the material.

Who or what are we?

 

The Harvey Center is an online gathering place where homeschooling parents and tutors can come together and develop relationships while learning together. We sharpen each other, and strive to cultivate the mind and heart within our students. Here you will find small, personal online courses, which will help you as homeschooling parents to educate your children, but will also give you the opportunity to study these subjects for yourself! Whether it is an in-depth reading of Homer, or Dante, or simply a primer in logic. So please consider joining us -- dive into the Great Conversation yourself. There are courses for both teens and adults. Short ones and long ones! Our goal is a vigorous (full of life) education, not a rigorous (stiff and unbending) one. And take a look at our brand new hybrid, the Seminar Course, which is a very affordable option for those who would like a live teacher, but prefer not to pay several hundred dollars for one course. 

 

One of our most important activities is the Conversatio, which is a monthly online discussion of the classics, for the adults. If you would like to find friends who are committed to reading the Great Books, please join us there--even if you do not have students for the other classes. Single adults (anyone interested in studying the classics) are welcome to join us! This is the heart of our endeavor!

Consider joining us as we travel through Greece with Dale Grote and Wes Callihan.
