About the conference

Beauty.

What is it? How does it shape our instruction?
How does it influence school culture and our affections?
Does it draw our students into wonder and worship?

Recovering Beauty

Classical Christian educators affirm the classic transcendentals of truth, beauty, and goodness. However, among the three, beauty is perhaps most misunderstood and neglected. Recovering a right framework for and participation in beauty is necessary to attain the soul formation we desire. What does this require? 

For this year’s conference, we have assembled scholars and educators from around the country to provide a robust and compelling understanding of this rich topic. We will explore the role of beauty in the arts, in the classroom, in shaping affections, and as a means of drawing others to truth. Speakers will draw from the classical Christian tradition to challenge each of us to see and experience beauty and to help our students to do the same.
