2019 Conference

Final Approval (3)School of the Ozarks & The Classical Thistle Annual Classical Christian Education Conference

March 8-9, 2019

College of the Ozarks

100 Opportunity Avenue, Point Lookout, MO 65726

School of the Ozarks and The Classical Thistle will once again join together on March 8-9, 2019, to host our annual Classical Christian Education Conference. Our conference explores the practical aspects of teaching classically within today’s classrooms.  Through practical workshops that include ideas and tips from seasoned classical educators and that allow time for Q&A and discussion, this conference aims to equip teachers with practical tools to use right away. The conference is designed around three plenary lectures and over 30 workshops spread out over six breakout sessions. Video of the breakout sessions and audio of the plenary sessions will be available in the weeks following the conference and can be accessed at no cost! Although we aim to provide audio and video resources of this and future conferences, nothing can replace the great interaction with other classical Christian educators available at the conference. This year we are pleased to offer a Friday evening public forum open at no cost to conference attendees, parents, students, and community members. We will hear about the value of a classical Christian education from Dr. Louis Markos of Houston Baptist University, as well as have a time of Q&A and discussion with him. We hope you will make plans to join us on March 8-9, 2019.
