Upper Junior Course/Parent Tutorial (10-12 yrs), $165.00 – No Prerequisite
Before the time of Christ, children were still taught the beauty and power of the Good and the wickedness and ugliness of the Bad. Cultures turned to the gods, a fantastical set of beings with great powers who guarded the earth and her inhabitants with actions both beneficial and hazardous. This course steps back to the time of the Greek myths and tells the tale of the eternal battle of good versus evil through the eyes of these enduring stories of the gods and their antics. You and your child will enjoy learning of the wiliness of Hermes, the bravery of Apollo, the wisdom of Athena, and the trickery of Hades. Through the adventures of these gods both on Mount Olympus and on Earth, students and parents will travel deeper into their understanding of truth, loyalty, justice, mercy, love, and sacrifice. They will also discover the ways natural law has informed the morality of society and given mankind knowledge of the Good.
