CAL History Series by Keith Preston

Lafayette History Series

We're proud to offer the Lafayette History Series each year, featuring in-depth lectures on significant events and topics in world and American history for interested adults. This program grew out of a consistent request from parents and adults desiring a similar education to what we’re offering their children. After hearing about our classical curriculum, they would often leave a school tour asking, “Where can I sign up?”  So this series is a sampling of what we teach in the classroom but we’re taking a deeper dive for our more seasoned students.
