About the conference

Redeeming the Times

The current cultural moment presents a host of challenges and opportunities for classical Christian schools. While it is tempting to become cynical or fearful, as believers, we are called to be wise and “redeem the times.” What does faithful cultural stewardship and engagement look like for classical Christian educators? For our schools? For our students? 

Please join us and a thoughtful group of scholars and educators as we explore Paul’s admonition to walk in wisdom, redeeming the time. We will draw from the Great Tradition to explore ways we can be discerning about the cultural context we are in, learn to see the good, and find ways our schools can speak into the troubling milieu we are in with clarity, purpose and hope.

What Are Affinity Groups?

A hallmark of the Society for Classical Learning is community: connecting and conversing around both the big ideas and the everyday practical issues we face as classical Christian educators.

This year, the SCL has created affinity groups: opportunities designed to facilitate connection by bringing together attendees with common roles to reflect, learn, and share ideas in community.

We have planned two occasions at the Summer Conference for these affinity groups to meet, mingle, and connect.

  • Thursday, June 16 – 9:45am – After Plenary I
    • This is a chance to get connected first thing at the conference and begin to form relationships that will benefit you for the rest of the conference, and maybe for years to come.
  • Friday, June 17 – 5:00pm – Before Dinner (on your own) at 6:00pm
    • After attending multiple breakout and plenary sessions, this is an opportunity to relax, continue conversations, and ask good questions – together!
