Classical Conversation 20th anniversary logo

Today, more than 105,000 students from over 43,000 families participate in Classical Conversations programs in almost 2,500 communities. These communities are led by over 15,000 contracted directors and tutors and are located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and 15 foreign countries.

A Changing of the Guard

In 2012 Leigh stepped away from the leadership of the program she had created 15 years earlier, and it was Classical Conversations’ very first student, her oldest son, Robert, who became the new CEO.

God Blesses Classical Conversations with Rapid Growth

As Classical Conversations began to expand outside the central North Carolina area, Leigh developed the idea of local communities led by directors and tutors for the three programs: Foundations, Essentials and Challenge. The contract workers received extensive training and resources to better offer the Classical Conversations programs in their local communities.

Classical Conversations Develops into a Business

With the help of friends and family, Leigh developed a business plan for her fledgling business and entered it in the annual Piedmont Entrepreneurial Network’s new business competition.

Classical Conversations Gets Its Start

The growing Bortins family moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in 1989 when Rob accepted a job with US Air. Then Leigh began homeschooling in earnest.

An Idea Takes Form

With the desire to give her oldest son a good education, Leigh Bortins grew Classical Conversations.
