You are invited to the first of a series of events titled "Toward the Quadrivium", where author Leigh Bortins will partner with experts and talk about home-centered education and moving your children towards high school graduation. We are very pleased that author Nancy Pearcey is going to be our first guest and you should be too.

Come join Nancy Pearcey and Leigh Bortins for a day of learning, Saturday, April 30th in Manassas, Virginia, located in Northern Virginia just a short drive from Maryland, Washington D.C, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and North Carolina. Discuss the importance of God's truth in education and how to apply that to your students' studies. Nancy will be speaking on her books Soul of Science, Total Truth and her latest, Saving Leonardo. Leigh Bortins will speak on how you can apply the great information from Nancy Pearcey's books to your child's curriculum, as you move them toward the Quadrivium.

There will be a bookstore on hand, and a book signing after the event. This will be a great event for those who are interested in classical education or want inspiration for their homeschool.

You can view a complete itinerary for the event here.
