The atmosphere is lighthearted, friendly, and jovial–a gentle place to start.
What is Telepaideia?
Telepaideia is a broad collection of online courses, offered by the Paideia Institute in 10-week semesters three times a year (Fall, Spring, and Summer terms). These live classes are each designed and led by a dedicated teacher from the Paideia community and are taught in small groups of approximately five or fewer. Students can select and directly enroll in Telepaideia courses on a wide range of topics related to Latin, Greek, and the Classical humanities, according to both their personal interests and previous learning experiences. Course offerings change from semester to semester, but generally include language classes (at various levels and intensities), reading classes, and classes dedicated to intellectual history and Classical reception.

Our instructors are based all over the world, but class times are typically scheduled outside of working hours in the Eastern Time zone. Scheduling accommodations can be made at the instructor's discretion.
