Rockbridge Academy Community Symposium 2022

Each year, Rockbridge Academy invites a guest lecturer to speak to our parents and the broader community on topics relevant to educating the heart and the mind. This year we are pleased to welcome Dr. Christopher Perrin as our guest speaker. 

Join us on Thursday, January 27th.  

Christopher Perrin, MDiv, PhD, is the CEO of Classical Academic Press, and a national leader, author, and speaker for the renewal of classical education. He is the author of An Introduction to Classical Education: A Guide for Parents, Greek for Children Primer A, and co-author of the Latin for Children series. He is the director of the Alcuin Fellowship, former co-chair of the Society for Classical Learning, and an adjunct professor with the honor's program at Messiah College and with the Classical School Leadership master’s program at Gordon College. Chris previously served for ten years as a headmaster of a classical Christian school in Harrisburg, PA.

In this presentation, we will consider how scholé is related to contemplative and restful learning that complements the active learning that is also part of education. We will also consider the practical ways we can bring the principles of rest or scholé back into our schools and homes and work.
