For various reasons, teachers may not be ready (or able) to join the apprenticeship. For teachers who want to develop the art of classical instruction from home, CiRCE offers two additional programs.

The Lost Tools of Writing for Adults online Class is a one year commitment with a weekly class lead by Apprenticeship graduate and Director Andrea Lipinski. She teaches each lesson in the curriculum and discusses how you too can teach it and assess it with your students. 

Our Atrium program explores the foundations of Christian classical education with only online classes and discussions. It is a one year (ten-month) commitment. During the year, teachers, administrators, and learners slowly read David Hicks’ educational treatise Norms and Nobility, and have the opportunity to attend live or watch the recording of three webinars per month: one with the lead teacher to discuss the chapter itself, one with a guest speaker, and a colloquy with an Apprenticeship graduate leading the discussion that is tailored to the chapter and attendees’ questions.

The Lost Tools of Writing for Adults and the Atrium are both excellent preparations for the Apprenticeship.
