Do you know a parent who is interested in homeschooling, the classical model, or a community-based approach to home education? Consider inviting them to a local Classical Conversations® outreach event!
Open Houses vs. Information Meetings
Both Open Houses and Information Meetings are welcoming places to start learning about homeschooling and the Classical Conversations programs. But which is right for your friend? Should you invite them to an Open House or an Info Meeting?
An Open House is a chance to participate in a Classical Conversations local community firsthand. These events are for families (yes, your friend is welcome to bring their child along!) looking to observe a typical community day as a fly on the wall. Naturally, Open Houses are ideal for asking Classical Conversations parents, students, Tutors, and Directors who are in the thick of homeschooling what their experiences are like with our programs.
In short, if your friend is interested in a community-based approach to homeschooling or the Classical Conversations programs, encourage them to attend an Open House!

An Info Meeting, on the other hand, is a time when experienced local homeschooling parents and Classical Conversations team leaders share about the Classical Conversations programs and their experiences homeschooling in a community. Plus, there is often great discussions about homeschooling and classical education more broadly, making Info Meetings a great place to glean practical tips for the homeschooling journey.
Info Meetings are excellent if your friend is less familiar with Classical Conversations and looking to survey their homeschool program or curriculum options.
