 2015 - 2016 Tutorials  

All tutorials are intended for high school or mature middle school students able to complete the required work. Each class is a live class online using conferencing services that allow for audio and video interaction. 

The Great Conversation: A Great Books Survey









This year-long course provides an introduction to a selection of the Great Books and guides students through the works of the authors who shaped Western Civilization, beginning in ancient Greece and continuing to our own time. Rather than providing a summary of each Great Book or trying to cover all the highlights, this course allows students to read, analyze, and discuss a key chapter or passage of each selected work. Class discussions, as well as brief contextual essays, will help students to engage the central issues of the text as well as have the opportunity to evaluate the ideas presented from a Christian perspective.


Required Text: The Great Books Reader: Excerpts and Essays on the Most Influential Books in Western Civilization Ed. by John Mark Reynolds.


Meets Wed. 11:00 - 1:00 pm [EST] 10:00 - 12:00 [CST] 9:00 - 11:00 [MT] 8:00 - 10:00 [PST]

 The World of C.S. Lewis 

This year-long course offers students an opportunity to journey into the world of C.S. Lewis through the pages of some of Lewis' best beloved works of fiction and most influential Christian classics. Weekly reading and discussions will help students engage these texts as literary works, worthy of intellectual consideration, as well as spiritual works, valuable for developing Christian maturity. All students are welcome! Whether you’ve grown up reading Narnia, don’t know the first thing about C.S. Lewis, or have already ventured into some of his theological works, this course will expand your familiarity with and deepen your appreciation for this wonderful author.
