"These discussions have contributed immensely to our children's education.  Thank you very much."
Mr. and Mrs. T.B., Oklahoma  



"Love kindled by virtue always kindles another, provided that its flame appear outwardly."
Dante Alighieri

"I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Mike and I are so happy with the Socratic Seminars. There are so many good fruits that come with those discussions. We wish we had more time to talk with Stephen about what he is reading because he enjoys it very much, and we're grateful he has that time on Fridays to listen to what others think and express his own opinions. It has made the start of his high school years enjoyable. He is learning much and honing skills in so many areas. I can already see the preparation for college. All the extra writing in the college track has been great for him. You and Dr. Taylor do a superb job, and it's easy to see how much the students like you and how much you enjoy doing what you do. Thank you! Thank you!"...Mrs. L.L.
