ACCS Foundation of Classical Christian Excellence (FCCE)

Essential Training for Classical Christian Teachers

   Look for this symbol to find Foundation classes in the conference schedule.


The FCCE Training Series is:

  • a foundational training course in classical Christian education
  • for grammar and secondary teachers
  • held in conjunction with the Repairing the Ruins conference

Do you have new teachers who need a crash-course on practical classical teaching? Or, are you a current teacher who knows the basic principles of “classical,” but aren’t sure how it all comes together in the classroom? This course is designed to provide a foundational practice in classical K-12 education that will change the way you teach.

We have assembled some of our movement’s most experienced educators and asked them to build a curriculum for new teachers. Each course will offer takeaways you can use in your classroom which will help teachers understand how to implement classical pedagogy. The “Foundation of Classical Christian Excellence” series is offered each year with slight variations, but with a common syllabus. Grammar and secondary teachers will be divided at times.
