Learning Together in Home Schooling
The Harvey Center offers courses in Latin, Logic, History, and much more. They are taught by experts passionate about their subjects and committed to being there for your student. Even though one of our purposes is to bring together experienced and knowledgable teachers, 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 desire to pursue the cultivation of 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. We want to encourage the parents and other members of the extended family to study along with their students, and to read and discuss great literature.
This is such an important factor in the success of the home school, that we have decided to structure in rewards for the parents' study in our Conversatio Membership Plan. There will be both privileges and financial rewards! This way the parents and grandparents may study with us and learn about the trivium via workshops and discussion of great books, long before their children are even old enough for high school. A fringe benefit of this endeavor will be that we can get to know one another better, and thereby be better able to help the students when they do enroll in our courses, and ultimately encourage each other to “love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, and mind.”
