Nathaniel Pullmann is a husband and the father of six children. He and his wife are both graduates of the finest liberal arts college in the country, Hillsdale College. He has spent nearly a decade developing classical, Christian education options in Fort Wayne. In 2012, he founded the first Classical Conversations group in the area, starting a movement that has grown into half a dozen classical homeschool communities in the area, educating hundreds of students.
In 2014, he enrolled in graduate studies at Hillsdale College, earning a master’s degree in 2016. While there, he apprenticed with Kenneth Calvert at Hillsdale Academy and learned the fine points of running a classical school. He was awarded a fellowship with the college’s Winston Churchill Project, which is archiving the personal papers of one of the greatest statesmen ever. He graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa — the nation’s most prestigious honor society — and earned high marks on his graduate thesis on Americans’ natural rights.
In 2017, he founded and opened Redeemer Classical School, the first classical Christian school in the Fort Wayne area. He is the headmaster of the school and a teacher there. Under his leadership, the school has grown every year since opening, quadrupling the number of students and faculty. He has also consulted with several other schools that are in the process of making their education more classical and with several groups that are trying to start new classical, Christian schools.
