New this Year: Colloquium Day

Be refreshed and inspired as we take advantage of the historical surroundings and local liberal arts tradition at St. John’s College, one of America’s oldest and most vibrant classical programs. St. John’s College, in the midst of Annapolis’ colonial downtown, has been a fertile resource for Rockbridge Academy faculty, many of whom have received advanced training in the classics through the years. 

We will start with the morning’s plenary in the beautiful Great Hall (c. 1742), followed by discussions in the adjoining historic seminar rooms. Curated self-guided tours of downtown will allow for lunching in town and an afternoon stroll through the many historical sites available. We will reconvene at 4:00 PM back at the St. John’s campus boathouse for an afternoon social, including light refreshments with Rockbridge Academy faculty, before folks break for the many dinner venues Annapolis offers.

What our Attendees Had to Say

2018 Summer Teacher Training

What our attendees had to say

  • I thoroughly felt I learned so much. I am so blessed to have had this week to gain knowledge.
  • I can hardly wait to implement what I learned (and was reminded of) this week. I'm already looking forward to attending again next year - Lord willing! Thank you so much for your time and effort and your generosity in giving this outstanding training!
  • I appreciated how accessible the staff was for conversation.
  • Very well done. This was my first classical education teaching conference and I leave here more prepared to teach. I particularly found Mrs. Krmpotich's lesson structure of "classwork, homework, assessment" very helpful.
