Stages of Formation

Laura offers a series of parent classes on the different stages of formation. These classes are pre-recorded and available over the internet. They are open to enrolled families, free of charge, or to families who are not enrolled, for a small fee. In each of these courses Laura reviews the stages of formation (Primary for Kindergarten through 2nd grade, Grammatical for grades 3 - 5, Analytical for grades 6 - 9, and Rhetorical for grades 10 - 12). Laura also goes over the methodological goals, the texts used, and how to implement the methodological and content goals for your child.
