West Virginia Classical Christian Homeschool

Jamie Buckland Contact Jamie Buckland

After five years of feeling as though she was chasing a homeschooling method that would fit their needs, Jamie joined a Classical Conversations campus.  It was a round trip of over two hours once a week, but Jamie knew her search was over.  The results were obvious, her children were thriving, and their schooling was streamlined.   Jamie’s personal education ended as a high school graduate, yet she feels adamant that through CC, she has the tools to continue schooling her children through graduation.  Their family’s experience that first year assured Jamie that bringing CC to Beckley was a must.

Days in the Buckland’s home are always full as Mom attempts to meet the needs of her husband and her 3 children, Ethan (13), Emma (10), and Elsie, (2). If you were to stop in for a random visit at Jamie’s home, it is likely you would find her Ethan and Emma sitting at the dining table.  Both would most likely have in ear buds to stay focused as he works through his Pre-Algebra, and she draws a map of Europe with a quill and a bottle of ink. It is even more likely you would find little Elsie positioned under that table taste-testing the new dry erase markers while Jamie is off switching out the laundry. Jamie is certain that no homeschooling mom actually has it together, but she is sure CC makes her a more competent homeschooling mom than she ever could have been on her own.  It is Jamie’s hope that other moms who feel the calling to educate their children at home would be able to answer that call because of the support that a local CC community gives them. 

Jamie is currently working alongside moms already reaping the benefits of Classical Conversations in order to have at least 4 communities in the Raleigh/Fayette area that can meet the growing needs of homeschooling families.  Open Houses will be available through the end of April at the current Hilltop location where interested parents can attend to see the program in action.  Jamie is confident in the ability of Classical Conversations to provide the support and training needed for children in southern WV to thrive under the guidance and direction of the teachers God assigned to them, their parents.  

Julie Park Contact Julie Park

When Julie and her husband, Anthony decided to educate their five children at home, the primary motivation was to raise them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord as was consistent with their faith.  They also wanted to protect the children during their formative years in order to prepare them to face real challenges later on. Early in the homeschool adventure, Julie came to love and embrace the truth, beauty, and goodness found in the classical approach to learning. Classical Conversations provided the rich learning environment that her young children’s fertile minds desired. She delights to watch as Latin declensions, history timelines, science facts, and English grammar take root almost effortlessly through song, motion, and fun. What is the most exciting part of the program? Watching her oldest child thrive in the Challenge level as he learns to wrestle with scientific findings, to logically and biblically approach current issues and debates, to glean from and analyze the ebb and flow in history, to appreciate the complexity in literature, and to develop his own logical conclusions about the universe in a safe and supportive environment.

 

Julie recognizes that Classical Conversations isn’t about making smart kids. It’s about equipping and preparing the future generation for leadership and ministry. She doesn’t want to present the next trendy homeschooling bandwagon. Rather, her passion is to show families through informational meetings, educational events, and other venues, how God is using CC to make Himself known by transforming and preparing families to make a gospel impact in an ever-troubling world. She is grateful to be a part of a strong, supportive community that embraces the same mission and mindset for the next generation.

Our purpose is to lead the home-centered education movement by equipping parents and students with the classical tools of learning needed to discover the order and beauty of God’s creation and to inspire others to do the same.

We believe parents are their children’s primary teachers not because parents know everything but because each child is uniquely (and wonderfully!) made and because the people who know and love a child best are the ones most motivated to help that child succeed.

We empower and support parents not only through our Classical Conversations Communities across the country but also through our specially designed CC Connected online community, Parent Practicums, and academic retreats. All of these services ultimately equip parents to educate their children with the classical tools of learning and a biblical worldview so that they might impact the world for God’s glory.
Regina Roberts Contact Regina Roberts

What was the one-room schoolhouse like and why was it successful even though there were multi-aged children attending it?  These questions brought Aaron and Regina Roberts to investigate the classical model of education.  Regina tried to implement this wonderful method but only when a long-time friend introduced Regina to Classical Conversations, did she realize how to make it work. That was the summer of 2007 and the Roberts Family has been hooked ever since! 

Aaron and Regina’s passion is Philippians 3:10, “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection.”  After choosing this verse as their family’s motto and mission they realized it is mirrored in the  motto and mission of Classical Conversations---“To know God, and to make Him known.”  No matter where the Roberts family goes their passion is to tell and help others find the true knowledge, understanding, and wisdom of “the whole matter” while they continue learning too that Solomon’s words ring loud and clear “the whole duty of man is to fear (know) God and keep His commandments.” Matthew 28:19, “Go and teach!”

I, Regina Roberts, am here to serve you. Now in my 11th year of this homeschool journey, I pray and work that I may serve you better each day.  “Ora et Labora!”

Sandy Vollmer Contact Sandy Vollmer

Sandy began her journey with CC in 2008 when an opportunity to help start a new community arose. While tutoring a Foundations class and leading her two youngest children through Challenges A and I the integration of the program and its stellar academics was brought to light. Helping with a Parent Practicum peeled back another layer of Classical Education when the question was asked, “Is your child a product to be measured, or a soul to be nurtured?” Exposing the fallacy of modern education gave freedom “To know God and to make Him known” through the remaining years of home education with her children. A passion for CC was ignited and the desire to help give other families this freedom continues to grow. Her husband playfully apologizes to people who ask her about home education knowing they are about to partake of a conversation that will test their purpose of education. Sandy is dedicated to building and strengthening communities in the Classical model knowing it will help equip and strengthen tomorrow’s Christian leaders to bring glory to God in every area of life. She and her husband, Dave, are the parents of five grown children who also see the value of Classical education talking about its significance in being a self-taught learner. They will graduate their fifth child in 2013 but know that education remains in their future as she pursues bringing CC to other families through serving as an Area Manager.
