HOMESCHOOLING Is becoming a national phenomenon. With the growth of this alternative to government funding education, many methods and philosophies have surfaced which provide the conscientious parent with options to meet any need.
THOMAS JEFFERSON EDUCATION is more than a method. It transcends all other methods and philosophies by introducing families to the principles of leadership education: the actual educational process for creating leaders and citizens who are mission driven, problem-solving oriented and concerned with personal character development.
FACE TO FACE WITH GREATNESS SEMINARS™ are the best and most intimate means to truly understand these principles and apply them in your home. The teams who present these seminars have a combined knowledge and experience level of over 50 years employing these principles.
THE FACE TO FACE WITH GREATNESS SEMINARS™ are a series of 2-day seminars that run over a 6-8 month period. Although each seminar is a “stand alone” experience, attending them in order is the most effective means of really getting a handle on how to apply these principles.
SEMINAR #1 – A THOMAS JEFFERSON EDUCATION: THE SEVEN KEYS OF GREAT TEACHING, is designed to introduce you to the concepts, principles, philosophy and methodology of what we call TJED. The over-arching principle of TJED is that all true education is student initiated and student driven. You will experience captivating lectures, enjoyable workshops, enlightening colloquia (small group discussion), and warm and engaging personal mentoring. Completion of the suggested readings is necessary to fully participate and gain the most from this intense but friendly seminar. You can expect to be inspired, uplifted and empowered by attending this event. If you are reading this, you probably are looking for more from education; whether it be homeschooling, personal study or business training. You will find it here.
SEMINAR #2 –A THOMAS JEFFERSON EDUCATION: MENTORING THE CLASSICS. The definition of a classic is “something that you experience and learn truth, experience again and learn more truth.” This seminar is designed specifically for parents who now have personal experiences with TJED and who are looking for specific answers to personal questions. Although we do an extensive review of the principles from seminar one, this is only the beginning. This is a transformational seminar that builds confidence in your ability to apply TJED in your home, and begins your journey of getting a world-class, Thomas Jefferson, liberal arts education yourself.
