Celebrate National Poetry Month!

Grace Kosloski will moderate a Great Issues discussion on POETRY MATTERS. She has compiled a list of thirty poems, so that we may celebrate by reading one poem a day throughout the month. Read the poem of the day here.

 

Students- Share Your Poems!

Due to popular demand, we have set up a Poetry Celebration blog for those students who have been writing poetry and would like to share one with us during the month of April. Please share yours at any time during April! You may send it via the form below, or as a response at the blog. Then we will post it for you.

The Harvey Center offers workshops and courses in Latin, Greek, Logic, Poetry, and much more.  They are led by tutors, who are passionate about their subject and committed to being there for your student. Even though one of our purposes is to bring together experienced tutors, who can support the homeschooling family with some of the courses of study, this is not our only raison d’etre. We realize that if we are committed to a true education, cultivating the mind, rather than the transcript--it will require a radical and creative new place.

 

We seek to cultivate the mind in all of us: the parents, teachers, and children. With our collective years of experience in “reinventing a form of classical education” we recognize that the most important factor in developing the minds of our young people is to provide them an atmosphere of learning in humility to God. It is a life that must be modeled and passed on with love and care. This best happens in a place like a family, or a small school, where the student is known and loved as a whole person. 

 

For this reason we hope to encourage the parents and other members of the family to study along with their young students, by hosting intensive workshops in the subjects of the trivium - and more. By joining the "Conversatio" we can inspire each other to read and discuss great literature.

 

"Diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo, et in tota anima tua, et in tota mente tua." Matthew 22: 37

 

"The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while conditions are still unfavourable. Favourable conditions never come." ~ C.S. Lewis

Our New Latin Curriculum.....

Latin I is being offered both in the Summer and the Fall!


We have been looking at this for a couple of years and have finally decided that it is worth the trouble and expense of switching. In our Latin I and II courses we are now using a new textbook series that has beautifully balanced the grammar approach with a reading approach to the language! Each chapter also introduces some conversational Latin. And last, but not least, it is very pleasing to the eye.

Contact us for more information or ask to reserve your seat by filling out the form below.

March's Issue was Greek & Latin

 

If you have been thinking of studying Greek or Latin, you should sign up for this!

It's a fabulous opportunity to get your questions answered by an expert. Along with teaching and studying ancient Greek and Latin at UNCC, Dr. Grote leads tours to Greece and speaks modern Greek. This discussion will explore the power of studying the ancient languages. He will answer such questions as... What approach should we have to the study of these languages? What are the main differences between ancient, medieval, and modern Greek? Should one study Latin or Greek first?

The February Issue Was Logic

What is logic, anyway? And what is so important about the study of logic? What in the world is the difference between “formal logic” and “informal logic” and “material logic”? Where should you (or your students) begin in their study of logic, and why? If you’ve ever wondered about the answers to these sorts of questions, you will want to join Tina Maclennan at our live online discussion on February 11th.
