What is a Classical Trip?
What we can learn
A Classical trip focuses on the roots of our culture, giving specific emphasis to the development of the humanities, arts, and broad aspects of science as they culminated in the world we know. The trips to Italy, Greece, and Turkey explore the development of our Western culture and it's worldwide influence around us. Emphasis is particularly given to Christianity's historical impact through Church and society on the Western mindset and how modern followers of Christ can impact our culture.
A Biblical worldview provides the context for understanding, organizing, and relating to the world around us. Additionally, it provides the basis for establishing our purpose, both corporately and individually, in this nation and beyond.
Who can go on these trips?
The trips to Italy, Greece, and Turkey are designed specifically for Challenge 3 & 4 students and homeschoolers but are also open to parents and siblings (16 or older).
Students who have studied Homer's Illiad and Odyssey and read Virgil's Aeneid take time to discuss, probe, assess, and evaluate the application of themes, principles, and lessons learned.
Engaging discussions help draw out new perspectives, clarify ideas and meanings addressed in class.
This Summer trip is our 8th year and 13th trip to Italy Greece Turkey
