Gleanings from the Garden: Classical Christian Education

Greetings from Dave and Renee Miller, founders of The Garden School in New Castle, Colorado, and a sister school in Basalt, Cornerstone Classical Academy, which is just a 25 minute drive from Aspen.

New posts are on the sidebar to your right. Just click on a topic and see what we’ve been learning.

A Night at the Symphony

Here’s what Dave wrote in 2011:   “Though the purpose of this humble screed will likely change over time, it’s called “A Classic Life” because that’s what I want my life to be.

Classic like my buddy Albert’s ’57 Thunderbird.

Classic like a book that rewards each reading.

Classic like the the columns the Greeks built in Athens.

Classic like the educational model that Renee and I have adopted and refined for our little private school.

And, well, classic because I already bought the domain name.” 

The main purpose of this blog is to educate, inform, elucidate and even entertain you about all things classical, Christian, and conservative (but fun).  We hope to provide a resource for homeschooling parents as well as groups who may be thinking about doing their own classical and Christian school.  Look for the links that will take you to some of our favorite mentors in the field, such as: Dr. George Grant in Tennessee and Dr. Douglas Wilson in Moscow, Idaho.  Links and new posts will be on your right, so you’ll always know where to go to find the new stuff.

There it is. Welcome to A Classic Life! Come back often to see what we’re learning in the renaissance of Classical Education.


And now a word from our sponsors. One way we are “keeping the lights on” is through our entrepreneurial efforts. We encourage you to do the same. Dave’s main business focus has been Tempo Wireless, aka, Lightyear Wireless.  You can get a free phone and great no-contract service (Sprint, Verizon, and now, T-Mobile), and he can show you how to turn your cell bill into a check and even earn free wireless service–He hasn’t paid a cell bill in over three years!

People are struggling to make ends meet in this economy. But who doesn’t have a cell phone bill that they pay every month?  This is the perfect business. All we do is help people save money on their cell bill or even get it for free and show others how to do the same thing.

In most families, an extra two or three hundred a month could make all the difference. That kind of income is just scratching the surface of what’s possible in Lightyear Wireless.  Call Dave NOW: 970.404.7086

    It’s nice to see a proper debate online and not everyone just agreeing with the writer for a change.
