Challenge II, III and IV students may enroll in a unique college credit program partnership with Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida.
Homeschool Counselor is in its infancy, but the subscription service is growing and already provides exclusive resources such as high-value scholarships, tools for making informed choices, Great Books college connections, and tools for putting your best foot forward to college admissions officers.
Homeschool Testing Services offers both online and on-site standardized testing each spring. Testing sites are typically Classical Conversations community sites. HTS also offers standardized testing preparation services.
Students memorize thousands of facts from disciplines such as math, science, English grammar, history, Latin, and geography and recite them in competition. Competitors are judged on flawless and creative performances. The year 2016 was the first year for the National Memory Master competition, held during the Capstone Cruise. The winner, Hannah Tully of Vancouver, Washington, won $10,000.
National Number Knockout is a mental math game that uses addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, roots, and exponents. The N2K national competition between 16 finalists takes place on the Capstone Cruise. Last year, the fourth year of competition, Sophia DiPiazza, 13, of Allendale, Michigan, won $10,000, and her teacher (her mom, Rebekka) also won $2,000.
The year 2016 was the first year for the national Challenge Graduation and Capstone Cruise, but Classical Conversations plans to make it an annual event. The May 1-5 cruise aboard Carnival’s Victory to Nassau, Bahamas, included the national championship rounds of National Memory Masters and National Number Knockout. Twenty-one graduates and more than 350 members of the Classical Conversations family enjoyed the 2016 cruise.
