Fall Symposium

Classical Lutheran Education: A Growing Movement

October 20-21, 2023
Grace Lutheran School
Brenham, Texas

You are invited to join us for the first annual fall symposium presented by the Consortium for Classical Lutheran Education (CCLE). Gather with other educators, students, and guests on Friday, October 20 and Saturday, October 21, 2023 at Grace Lutheran Church & School in Brenham, Texas to learn more about classical Lutheran education.

Find out why an increasing number of Christian schools are adopting this time-tested educational approach and why more educators are understanding the value of the pedagogy and principles reinforced by the classical liberal arts. Guest speakers Dr. Gene Edward Veith, Rev. Steve Kieser, and Rev. Robert Paul will discuss what classical Lutheran education is and is not, why it is a growing movement, and how you can benefit from the rich heritage of classical Lutheran education.

Attendees will receive one continuing education credit for attending (per request).

This conference is geared toward ages 13 and up. There is no children’s programming or childcare provided, but children are welcome to register and must stay with parents at all times. All attendees age 13+ must purchase a ticket to attend. Younger children may attend without a ticket, but only ticketed attendees will receive meals.

Please contact Anna Martin at Executive.Director@ccle.org with any questions.

Ticket sales for this event have ended.
