Classical Conversations
Melisa Weaver

Our mission is to know God and to make Him known

Our Purpose
The purpose of Classical Conversations® is to lead the home-centered education movement by teaching parents and students the classical tools of learning so that they can discover God’s created order and beauty— and as a result— enable others to do the same.


Our Vision
Classical Conversations fulfills its mission and purpose by establishing and supporting Classical Conversations communities across the United States and in several countries, and by empowering parents in the classical, Christian teaching of their children through Parent Practicums. We enable parents everywhere to equip their children with a Christ-centered worldview and the classical “tools of learning” in order to impact the world for God’s glory.

Kids Express Learning Center / Hickory Hill Academy

At Kids Express Learning Center (KELC) we believe children are capable, curious, self-directed learners who respond positively to warm, loving guidance. Children crave intellectual stimulation and depend on encouragement and support to grow emotionally, morally and socially strong. 

Madison Country Day School

Madison Country Day School is Dane County’s only independent, private Pre‑K–12 school, offering a challenging and comprehensive college‑preparatory education, including the Madison area’s only International Baccalaureate program.

Rural Virtual Academy

The RVA is a tuition-free, online public school, with the same accreditation and accountability as your local brick and mortar school. The difference is, we have the freedom to teach your children the way they learn best. At the RVA, we strive to provide families the resources they need to provide a strong academic foundation, the flexibility to learn on their own schedule and at their own pace, teachers that both engage and inspire, live instruction in middle and high school as well as over 1000+ independent specialty classes that typical schools can’t provide.
