We want to hear from you!

Do you have your own local, in-person Scholé Sisters group? Whether you call it that or not, do you have a community of women that gathers around good books or beauty-creating activities? If so, we’d love to hear about it!

Classical Academic Press is teaming up with us to create a listing of Scholé Sisters groups (no, taking on the name Scholé is not a requirement, but that’s our own shorthand for communities of women gathering to share truth, goodness, and beauty together). You can list your group or go to find if there is a pocket near you that you didn’t even know about.

We’d love to help you connect as local communities, and this is our first idea for doing so. Fill out the form linked here to list your group, to tell us you’re looking for a group, or to give us more ideas for fostering fellowship.

Thank you!

Learn all about Scholé Sisters groups with resources from Sarah, Pam, Mystie, and Brandy. Our free ebook, How to Start a Scholé Sisters Group will give you both the encouragement and the practical help you need to get a group off the ground. If you’re looking for even more information, our workshop bundle includes an hour-long video conversation about various experiences we’ve had with groups and how we’ve pulled it off in different ways at different times, and also handy printables for participants and leaders and even a book list with our top picks for book discussions.

“I’m not an airplane”

This post from Sarah is not to be missed. We all need a reality check from time to time, and this one resonates deeply.

Education in an Hour

Adam Andrews will be giving a live workshop for the Read Aloud Revival Membership Site that you can attend whether you’re in or not. If you aren’t a Read Aloud Revival Member, sign up here to get in on this intriguing master class.

It will be a one-hour, live online training that teaches you the step-by-step method for keeping your homeschool on track when everything else is falling apart.

And who doesn’t need that?

Sarah shares about the hardest part of her homeschool year, and how she handles it: “On Being Outnumbered by Toddlers.”

Pam has some quick tips for taking excellent back-to-school pictures yourself this year: “8 Tips for Fabulous Back-to-School Photos.”

From Brandy’s “Music and the Poetry of Education”:

“I remember the first time a friend of mine said that “there is no such thing as a classically educated child” and I gasped audibly. But this is exactly what she meant: the liberal arts aren’t for little children, and there is something Other and Necessary that precedes them.”

from Mystie:

What is the end?
end, noun
a final part of something, especially a period of time, an activity, or a story
the furthest or most extreme part or point of something
a goal or result that one seeks to achieve

“Flying around the Classroom” by Christopher Perrin:

“Important matters tempt men into men of importance. In other words grave tasks can be the death of us, since the one who becomes self-important must soon learn to die to himself. The very gravity of our work can rob the levity of our souls.”
