Andrew Kern: Classical Collegium | Classical vs. Progressive Education

Jacob GoodwilerClassical Collegium, Events

Andrew-Kern-PinterestThe Cambridge School is dedicated to the ideal of a truly classical education, which is why we are hosting the Classical Collegium Series here on our campus. We invite all parents and educators in our community who are interested in learning more about Classical Christian Education or would like to connect with others who share a love and passion for the subject. The Classical Collegium Series is an incredible opportunity to hear from some of the most influential minds in the Classical Christian education movement. This series seeks to inform parents and educators about the foundations of a truly Classical Christian education, and how it can transform a young mind into a well-rounded scholar.

We were pleased to welcome Andrew Kern, the Founder and President of the CiRCE Institute on November 7th. Mr. Kern spoke about Classical Education vs. Progressive Education.
