Central Southeast Louisiana Area
Coming out of the school system in 2010, Christy and her husband were looking for help to begin the homeschool journey with their three sons. Classical Conversations' vision of knowing God and making Him known was the key factor in choosing this program. Children should know what they believe and why they believe it, and have the ability to intelligently and confidently articulate their beliefs. Classical Conversations provides parents and children with the tools they need to do just that. Having experience with the Challenge program for the past two years has revealed to Christy the fruit of the Foundations and Essentials programs and that the tools for learning are substantial to accomplish academic goals. Classical Conversations made the transition into homeschool manageable and fun for her entire family.
As she continues the homeschool journey with CC, she would like to empower and equip other families with the same opportunities by offering free parent training at practicums, helping families to start new communities in southeast Louisiana, and serving current Classical Conversations' families. Her prayer is that this generation would have the education and confidence they need to be the world-changers God has called them to be. Christy is in the process of building her team in the area. In order for CC to be successful, we need leaders in our area. If you are interested, contact Christy.

Although homeschooling was not something that Jessica would have ever imagined for her family, she and her husband Shane, soon realized that they wouldn't want to raise their children any other way. Jessica found herself searching for a program that would fit into her family’s active lifestyle while juggling roles as wife, mom, and professional. After several years of homeschooling and trying different educational approaches, she learned about Classical Conversations. She immediately knew that CC was what she had been searching for to complete her family's adventure through the homeschooling years. Classical Conversations provides just the right amount of structure and accountability to help ensure her children receive not only an excellent education but a strong desire to seek God in all things.
As an immediate goal, Jessica will be working toward starting communities in the Prairieville, Dutchtown and Houma areas as well as adding new Challenge levels at the Gonzales community. She will also be hosting numerous Information Meetings to help families see that homeschooling through high school is not only doable, but enjoyable as well.

Theresa’s vision for both homeschool and Classical Conversations comes from the verse in Mark 10:14 where Jesus says, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.”Her heart is in bringing children to Christ. She and her husband strive to do this in their home with their two daughters, in Children’s Church, or through education. Theresa’s desire is to build a generation of mighty men and women for God who are powerful warriors of their faith – a generation who will be able to defend their faith as well as explain it. She has found that through Classical Conversations, generations (parents and children) are being taught to not only love learning, but also to know God and to make Him known.
Theresa is excited to strengthen and build Classical Conversation communities in the Baton Rouge area with people who have a passion to educate their children in the wisdom and truth of God. She sees the need for parents to build relationships with other parents who can mentor them in a strong Spirit-led group. This year, her goal is to branch out to the areas of southeast Baton Rouge and to the Port Allen area, however not limiting herself to these locations. She is also looking forward to establishing Challenge campuses all around Baton Rouge to encourage and equip parents to homeschool their children through high school.
Greater New Orleans Area
As a traditional secular teacher for over a decade, modern educational paradigms left Trey dissatisfied and disenchanted with the educational prospects for his own children. As a result, Trey began a journey down a path of discovery to find models of education that once instilled a Christian Worldview and taught the skills necessary to become a learner for life. The path discovered, led to a classical model of education and morals of an uncompromisingly Christian Worldview. For Trey and his family, Classical Conversations was a present day answer to prayer from a time when education was successful in its intentions and its purposes.
Believing that all parents can successfully educate their own children and that Biblically, God has entrusted that responsibility to parents, Trey is committed to educating, equipping, empowering and encouraging parents to homeschool their children through high school. Trey is dedicated to fulfilling his calling by conducting information meetings, Parent Practicums and walking along side families who also desire a first class education from a Biblical Worldview in the New Orleans and surrounding areas.

Encouraging full-time parenting is a passion for Yvette and Larry Blanchard. After homeschooling for eight years and being blessed with the fruit of this walk of obedience, Yvette is excited to share the vision of Christian classical education. She loves building a foundation of grammar and seeking wisdom through dialectic opportunities and has found this possible for her family through Classical Conversations and the timeless and timely lessons it offers.
Supporting the southwestern area of Louisiana, Yvette reaches into the communities of her area, to extend hope and encouragement to parents with school-aged children. She is excited about the growth of homeschool and Classical Conversations in this area and is looking forward to growing new communities especially in the Lake Charles area for the 2013-2014 school year. Homeschoolers in Louisiana are embracing the superior education offered by Classical Conversations due to the spirit of excellence that encompasses the program and a purposeful response to our education dilemmas.
