2020 Events & Info Sessions

Experience Great Books in Your Community!

During the school year, GBSP staff and Academic Directors travel throughout the United States and abroad to meet with students, parents, and teachers to discuss our unique academic approach and seminar-style learning experience. 

Join us in alumni homes, student classrooms and local community venues to have your Great Books questions answered. Participate in a demonstration of the Shared Inquiry method, engage in discussion with our faculty, and find out what makes our community so special.
