Quotes from 2019 Attendees

I love the unapologetic, bold commitment to pro Deo et schola [for God and school] and the nourishment of mind, heart, and soul.

I appreciate the call to continue seeking the classical method and the continual teaching of what that really is. We all need this as most were not trained as teachers in our universities.

I … was blessed with some very real and practical things that can be put to use as soon as school resumes.

It is a feast of good teaching.

The Repairing the Ruins conference always reminds me of why I am devoting my time, treasure, and talents to classical Christian education.
