Education is a process of opening closed doors in the mind and heart to lead students to virtue and to a deeper understanding of God and His creation. Central to this process is to surround students with an ancient curriculum of virtue, nobility, honor, purity, sacrifice, loyalty, and beauty. CLRC instructors seek to do this through the study of literature, poetry, art, music, science, and theology with their students.
BONNERS FERRY, IDAHO, January 17: The Classical Learning Resource Center (CLRC), operating with the blessing of Bishop Joseph of the Antiochian Orthodox Diocese of Los Angeles and the West, serves Christian children in homeschooling families, curriculum cooperatives, and private schools throughout the nation.
John Van Fossen, one of the founders of the online learning center said, “This past decade has been transformational in the history of education. For the first time we are positioned to offer Classical Orthodox education to a wide spectrum of Christian families who are committed to advancing their children’s education.”
Through the Classical Learning Resource Center, Subdeacon John Van Fossen, his wife Anne, and Reader Matthew Gallatin bring extensive academic credentials and teaching experience to their students. They offer online classically based college preparatory instruction for middle school and high school students.
Bryan Smith, Headmaster of St. Peter’s Classical School in Fort Worth, Texas and Director of the Orthodox Christian School Association said, “Within the world of classical and liberal arts Christian schools the Van Fossens are well known, being participants in many seminars and colloquia related to issues of importance to private schools. They have vision, creativity, intellect, and hearts clearly devoted to the Church.”
Bishop JOSEPH, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles and the West had this to say about the Van Fossens’ work in Christian education, “Their commitment to Christian education is extraordinary and the programs they have developed are among the best that I have ever seen.”
