    ClassicalU, Circe Atrium/Apprenticeship, etc.

    My son is only 2.5 y.o., but I’d like to take this time to develop my understanding of classical education and my teaching skills so I can excel at being his teacher and one day teach at a classical school. When my son is in high school, I’d like to become a certified classical teacher through the Circe Apprenticeship (any Circe Apprenticeship grads in the forum?) but am considering ClassicalU (CAP) and/or Circe’s Atrium (either the 7 Liberal Arts or Norms and Nobility) while my son is still a toddler. Thoughts on these resources or recommendations for alternatives? Thank you!

    Good for you! I would recommend reading on your own for a while before you dive into any specific programs. That way you can get your bearings a little bit before you start spending money! Well, I do recommend buying books! The MP store has great classical educational resource books. If you haven't read those they would be an excellent starting point. Depending on what you want to teach you could start going deep in your subject area (Latin? Literature? Science? Etc). I can tell you as someone who runs a school that an applicant that can go deep in multiple areas of study is a huge blessing!

Initially I was planning on the grammar years for future teaching, but I may end up falling in love with a particular subject down the road.

          The more versatile you can become the better because not every school needs an X (whatever you happen to be). You have so many years ahead! Enjoy the journey!
