No technology can ever replace learning from a teacher in person. This is an unusual statement to make as an introduction to an e-learning page. Nonetheless, we stand behind our statement since direct contact with a teacher is not only a matter of method, but also perspective on the culture being taught. That said, the requests we have received from many educators and students who have come to know us in the last decade have led us to consider how many, due to  the limitations of distance, are unable to benefit from what we offer in our facility. Because of this for those who live far away, we have developed a distance learning program in which learning content takes precedence over learning technology. The program emphasizes effective use of learning technology which we employ to assist you in further exploring the classical world at a manageable cost. Consider this opportunity, keeping in mind, however, that you are always welcome to take part in all of our programming that happens in person.
