One of the most important skills boys must develop is the ability to communicate effectively — with eloquence, confidence and imagination. The Tutorial is a 9 month, active and engaging course for boys ages 8-13 in writing, speaking, drama, and journalism.


We introduce boys to the greatest stories ever created, told by the greatest storytellers who’ve ever lived. The curriculum is rooted in classical literature, poems, speeches, dialogues, quotes, and dramatic scenes. They learn straight from the masters how to communicate in the most compelling ways.

We then teach them how to develop their own skills, how to present an idea, craft a narrative, and convey a message with creativity. Throughout the program, boys will produce radio shows, newspapers, dramatic reenactments, speeches, short stories, and documentaries.

“Your boys are fortunate in having their poetic imaginations nourished on this fare. You are most certainly carrying on the work so gloriously inaugurated by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien. If only boys were getting this sort of thing in all the schools of the country! The world would change! “

Dr. Thomas Howard  (Highly acclaimed Author and Speaker, Professor of English, noted for his work on CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien.)
