About Classical Conversations of Bryan/College Station (BCS)

Classical Conversations of Bryan/College Station, Texas is a local Christian classical home education community committed to knowing God and making Him known. We provide structure, accountability, friendship and support to like-minded families on their home education journey.

Families meet together weekly to learn about the world and the God who created it. Through academic seminars led by trained tutors, children and their parents are encouraged and challenged to increase their knowledge and understanding in seven key subjects. The educational and fun activities provided by Classical Conversations are certain to inspire and motivate students and to enable their parents to teach at home more effectively and confidently.

 

History of BCS Campus 

In August of 2009, five friends heard about Classical Conversations of Brenham through the B/CS Heart Network Loop. They immediately agreed to attend an informational meeting. They were intrigued, so two of the moms observed the first class in Brenham. They liked what they saw and all five families bravely signed their families up for 24 weeks of hour-long commutes to the Brenham CC campus.

They will never forget that year. Only four short months later, the same families agreed to take another step of faith and begin a campus in their hometown of Bryan-College Station, opening the doors for other local, like-hearted home-educators to participate.

Amy agreed to direct the new campus, while Staci became a Foundations tutor, Ari a Foundations Tutor substitute, and Bethany the Essentials tutor. The other family transitioned to KOR.  By August 2010 (only one year later), CC of B/CS had grown from 4 to 27 families! The campus currently has 48 students enrolled in Foundations/Essentials with a total of 30 families.

August 2012 enrollment:

36 Foundations families of 69 students

15 families of 22 students

28 families of 30 students
