Statement of Faith
I teach explicitly as a Christian and in the light of the historic, universal Christian faith. I affirm the Nicene Creed as a faithful summary of the Christian faith and the necessity of Christian unity and love in the bond of peace as expressed in Galations 5:22-23 and throughout I John. The only spiritual requirements of the students are a good attitude, a willingness to learn, and a commitment to kindness and graciousness toward others, but it should be expected that the teaching in Schola will clearly, explicitly, and regularly reflect a historical and classical Christian perspective.

About The Tutor

Wesley Callihan grew up on a farm in Idaho and graduated in History from the University of Idaho in 1983. He has taught for nearly thirty-five years - at Logos School in Moscow, Idaho; the University of Idaho; New St. Andrews College in Moscow, Idaho; and at Veritas Academy in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  He speaks regularly at Classical Christian education conferences (CiRCE Institute in Houston, July 2017) for home educators and private schools, and has taught summer intensive Latin and other summer courses. His online Great Books course has been filmed by Roman Roads Media as a video curriculum called Old Western Culture. He has written columns and short fiction for Credenda/Agenda and Antithesis, and contributed to the book Classical Education and the Home School, (published by Canon Press). Schola Classical Tutorials, a program of live internet courses in the Great Books and the Classical Languages, began in the fall of 1997 and is his contribution to classical Christian education, as are his live residence programs at Hill Abbey (summer courses and year-long "gap year" program).
Wes and his wife Dani have six children, most of them married, and thirteen grandchildren.  Wes and Dani live in an old farmhouse in northern Idaho near Wes's parents and most of the kids and grandkids, where six generations of the family have lived on the same family farm. They use the cold winters as an excuse to read, and the hot summers as another excuse to read. Wes likes hiking and hunting, barbecuing, listening to the blues, gardening, movies, and travel (he has organized many tours for his students and their families to Greece and Turkey). But like the Venerable Bede he loves teaching, reading, and writing best of all.
