2009 Spring Colloquium

Our spring colloquium on Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy was an enjoyable evening with members of our community led by Dr. Mosteller. We discussed the importance of focusing our lives on God who is eternal and can never be taken away. Boethius' text will be one that all students will read in their second year of the college curriculum.

2009 Summer Mini-Conference

Our three week summer seminar on classical education held in conjunction with the Mars Hill Discovery Center at North Coast Calvary Chapel was a great success. Our three speakers were Dr. Todd Bates on St. Augustine's Confessions, Mr. Fritz Hinrichs on Athansius and Classical Learning, and Dr. Tim Mosteller on C.S. Lewis' Abolition of Man. Each of the lectures is available in the media section of the college's website.

College Location: New Opportunities

The building that housed the San Elijo Hills visitor's center has been purchased by a local business. We are exploring the possibility of leasing a small business office in the building. In addition, there is potential seminar room space available for lease in the new Marketwalk buildings in the Town Center.
