Classical Conversations, Inc., is a private company, founded and owned by Leigh Bortins and run by her son Robert Bortins, who is the CEO. In addition to CC, Inc., the Bortins family owns many other companies whose services are advertised on the main CC website: Math Map, LLC, Classical Conversations Multimedia Inc., and Homeschool Testing Services Inc. (now dissolved but still advertised on their Corporate website). They also own National Athletic Village, LLC, Twin Fields Farm LLC, a residential rental company called Bortins Enterprises LLC and a variety of other companies that seem to be inactive. Classical Conversations is best known for its affiliated "communities", or privately owned homeschool tutoring programs, that meet weekly during the academic year for ages 4 through high school.
I want to share here a clear review of the K4 through grade 6 Classical Conversations programs, Foundations and Essentials, which are the programs my children attended. (We did not ever enroll in the Challenge programs for grades 7 through 12, so while I have many concerns about those as well, I will leave others to review them). CC promotes its programs as "Classical Christian Community". How well do those terms truly describe this program?
