Christian Classical Education and Support
for Home-School Families
Whetstone cultivates wisdom and virtue in students,
so that each of our students is better able
to know, glorify, and enjoy God.
"Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things shall be added unto you."
Whetstone teaches thinking and communication skills
by engaging students in the Great Conversation that
produced the classical discourses of Western Civilization.
"Only the educated are free." - Epictetus
(Registration opens in January 2018)
We offer The Lost Tools of Writing, a composition
class for high school students or adults,
online through the CiRCE Institute.

I really enjoyed your government class, it taught me a LOT! I love your teaching style too! I always felt relaxed in class. Thank you!Margot
Thank you so much for teaching Government! I found this class very enjoyable, and interesting, even though I hadn't been expecting to care about government. I loved the discussions, and you kept me interested from start to finish! I definitely learned many new things and now government and politics make much more sense.Natalie
I had no writing experience, but now I am confident and can push myself. Thank you, Miss Camille! You're an AWESOME teacher!Lauren

I loved it! You make it so interesting and make learning exciting! The week flew by, and I truly enjoyed the material! Thank you for including a Christian perspective in your teaching—I feel like I grew in my faith this week! Home schooling is a blessing!Raegan
The class was extremely interesting, and I enjoyed learning so much varied and useful information in such a short time! I think I will retrain my knowledge more than I would in a semester-long class. I loved the discussions and the real world examples. All of the concepts were far easier to understand with these tools.Sophie
This is the most engaging class I have taken, mostly because of the discussions!Matt
I think it's awesome! I have a hard time retaining information, and Mrs. Goldston made it really easy. I love how much we discussed things and included everyone in conversations. It really makes you think!Maddie
