Students in 3rd through 8th grades may join an online seminar group at any time, September through May. The readings that provide the basis for those discussions are not sequential – meaning that knowledge of the previous readings is not necessary for full participation in the current discussions.
Because the high school and college Great Books reading/seminar program is a four-year course, with successive readings building upon the knowledge and understanding acquired during the previous readings and seminars, students normally start at the beginning of the Ancient Greek year, regardless of the age or grade level of the student. Once a class is full, new students may enroll in another class time, and may request (by email to us) to be put on a waiting list for their preferred time. We let them know, in order, if an opening occurs, which is fairly common after a few weeks due to normal attrition or other changes.
