Dear Alumni, Students, Parents, and Friends of Schola,

I mentioned at the beginning of the month that I have some exciting news: well, here it is, finally. This is the first announcement of our Schola Mediterranean Tour '08 for alumni, students, and their parents. We're going to Italy for two weeks starting May 14, 2008, and here's the REALLY great part:

Dr. E. Christian Kopff has agreed to lead our tour!

If you don't know who Dr. Kopff is, follow this link to the University of Colorado at Boulder where he has taught for over three decades (when he's not teaching in Rome). Dr. Kopff knows classical education, he knows Italy and Italian, and he is a solid, conservative Christian. Here's a link to his book, The Devil Knows Latin, on Amazon.

We're still working out the itinerary, schedule, and fees, but there will be more information soon. Just thought I'd let you know what's up, because this will be an incredible opportunity.
