Homeschooling Questions Answered by Founder Leigh Bortins

After years of homeschooling, Leigh Bortins founded Classical Conversations in 1997 to achieve her mission to know God and to make Him known by providing the resources and training for parents to successfully homeschool. What began as a passion for her own children and family quickly resonated with other parents, eventually growing Classical Conversations into the global leader in homeschooling that it is today. Now, with all her own children out of the house and leadership of the company passed to her son Robert, Leigh travels around the world encouraging parents to begin and persevere through the homeschool journey.

In this video, recorded for the 2020 HEAV Homeschooling Conference in Virginia Beach, Leigh addresses several questions about homeschooling and offers advice for parents who want to homeschool but can’t figure out how to start.

Classical Conversations Values Its Parents

When my mom started Classical Conversations 23 years ago, it was because many homeschool parents didn’t feel comfortable educating their children through high school. My mom didn’t start Classical Conversations to homeschool those children for their parents, but to provide those parents with the necessary support to homeschool their kids through high school. Unlike other education companies that focus on children, Classical Conversations is focused on their parents. If parents are well equipped and supported by a community, they can homeschool through high school successfully.
