About

cropped-logo-larger.png Classical Thistle was founded in March 2017 and arose out of conversations between its co-founders, Kyle Rapinchuk and Scott McElvain, over a two year period. The conversations centered on the relatively minimal online influence of classical Christian education in an ever-increasing digital age. Although there has been an increase in print publications in recent years, the classical Christian education movement is still largely led by a few voices and a few publishers. We wanted to provide a two-fold service. First, we wanted to increase awareness in the broader community regarding the nature, purpose, and practice of classical Christian education. Second, we wanted to provide a forum for more voices to share their ideas and experiences with the hope that it will help instruct and encourage other classical Christian educators.
