Group looks to form home school community



“It’s fairly simple to home school in Oklahoma,” she said. “We have a lot of freedom, making it easy to exercise the curriculum and programs. The communities have done well in the state because they offer accountability, socialization and a chance for these students to interact with others of the same age.”
Robbins said the community would only need about three or four students to get started, and as word spread the community would quickly grow.
“The reason we are looking to start a new community is because we can only offer the Foundations program to 64 students. That means eight classes with only eight students per class,” she said. “ Once they grow beyond that, then we have to look into starting a new community. Our outreach season is usually between February and April, and typically the development and organization of the community will be completed by May.”
Robbins will host an information meeting for the Classical Conversations community at 4 p.m. on Feb. 22 at Cappuccino Corner, located at 900 East Will Rogers Boulevard.
For additional meetings or information, contact Marcie Robbins at (918) 914-3952 or email
