Along with our friends at Classical Conversations we're excited to announce our 2015 Lost Tools of Writing essay contest!

For students ages 12-18, this contest is an ideal opportunity for your students to practice (and show) what they've learned this year, with the chance of winning a cash prize too.

For Teachers and Parents:

Often after we help our students begin their lifelong pursuit of learning , we find that after high school our options for continuing a classical education are limited. CiRCE has showcased many fine options for student’s graduating from high school including several classical colleges and John Hodges’ delightful gap year program The Center for Western Studies.

Dear Fellow Classical Educator,

The noblest aim of Christian Classical Education is to cultivate wisdom and virtue in students. In order equip teachers to this end, The CiRCE Institute mentors teachers in the art of classical instruction. As you consider ways to develop excellence in your teaching, we invite you to discover the CiRCE Apprenticeship.

The day is near. The excitement is building. The retooled, redesigned, reinforced 5th edition of the Lost Tools of Writing will soon be here! What, you thought I was talking about Christmas?

To celebrate the forthcoming launch of this new edition we're hosting our first ever LTW Photography Contest (we trademarked that name so don't steal it!). 

Here's how it works:

Recovering the lost tools of writing has not been a simple, straight line. Andrew Kern and the CiRCE Institute have poured years of study, teaching, conversation, and close examination into our passion to help you and your students know, understand, and use the timeless tools of Rhetoric and persuasive writing.

Around here the summer time is an incredibly busy season. We're on the road a lot visiting schools, speaking at events, and generally trying to keep on. 

Thanks to you - our friends and like minded fellow soujourners - we can keep on explaining why classical education matters today more than ever and we can keep on seeking a deeper understanding of it. Thanks to you we can keep on cultivating wisdom and virtue. 

But we need your financial support to do this well.
