CiRCE apprentices come from a wide range of circumstances, including homeschooling parents, private and public school teachers, homeschool co-op instructors, academic deans, and school administrators.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN AN APPRENTICE
We seriously consider any candidate who expresses commitment to Christian classical education. We especially seek candidates who desire to teach in a way that honors the child and the subject taught; who cultivate a love for truth, goodness, and beauty; who love and respect God, man, and the creation; and who embrace their own ignorance–that is, who preserve a humility that recognizes limitations.
PROFILE OF AN APPRENTICE
CiRCE apprentices enjoy reading great literature, discussing important ideas in small groups, and writing about these ideas to enhance their understanding and compositional skills. Apprentices are eager to learn and willing to be corrected. They work hard to understand and communicate ideas. They love teaching, or want to learn to love it.
All applicants should be actively involved in some form of education. Such involvement might include homeschooling, classroom instruction, co-op instruction, or administration.
