Orthodox Apologetics (High School and Adult Levels)

What is apologetics? Simply put, apologetics seeks to provide a systematic defense of Orthodox theology. In our times, in the midst of so many assaults against the Church, we can see how a firm grounding in Orthodox apologetic theology is so important, especially for our youth.

Logic II/Rhetoric I

This course is actually two courses combined into one. In this course, students will continue their study of logic and begin to learn rhetoric. Here, someone might ask: isn’t rhetoric manipulative? Why would we want to teach rhetoric to an Orthodox Christian? To this, we need to look to the Church Fathers. To name but a few, Saint Basil the Great, Saint Gregory the Theologian, Saint John Chrysostom, all studied and made regular use of rhetoric. Simply put, rhetoric is the art of persuasion.

Introduction to Life Sciences

This course will be an introduction to biology and related life sciences for students with little or no background. There will be an emphasis on natural history. The goal of this course is to impart to the student an appreciation of life, the incomprehensibility of all living things, and the wonder of God’s creation. Understanding these things should empower students to resist indoctrination, especially with the pervasiveness of Darwinism and materialism.

St. Ephraim the Syrian Lenten Discussion Group

“O Lord & Master of my Life, a spirit of idleness, curiosity, ambition, and idle talking give me not. But a spirit of humility, chastity, patience & love, bestow upon me thy servant. Yea, O Lord King, grant me to see my own faults and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages.  Amen.”

Summer Course! Orthodox Apologetics for Parents

What is apologetics? Simply put, apologetics seeks to provide a systematic defense of Orthodox theology. In our times, in the midst of so many assaults against the Church, we can see how a firm grounding in Orthodox apologetic theology is so important, especially for our youth. Our flock, both parents and youth, need to know the doctrines of our Faith. Yet, we need more than this. We need to foster an Orthodox worldview. We need to equip our youth with the ability to defend the Faith, to not be intimidated in the face of what Saint Paul calls “knowledge falsely so called.” (I Timothy 6:20)

Classical Composition - Fable

What if your child could have the same training as the greatest writers and speakers of all time? These giants of history learned their art through a system called the progymnasmata, which taught them how to effectively communicate and persuade their audiences – a necessary skill in any time period. These days, being able to clearly articulate the tenets of our Orthodox Faith is more needed than ever. The progymnasmata will teach your children to express themselves clearly through writing and speech, so that they might convincingly convey the Truth to others. The first progymnasma is the Fable.

History for the Orthodox Christian – From Abraham to St. Constantine (High School and Adult Levels)

It almost goes without saying that it is important to study history. Yet, for the Orthodox Christian, the study of history has become an ideological minefield. One can read book after book on world history or western civilization. These textbooks leave the young reader with the impression that Christianity is a tool of oppression, that the sacred history in the Old and New Testaments is more myth than fact. In this class, we will approach the study of history from an Orthodox point of view.
