2020 /2021 Updates due to COVID-19

While there is no way to ensure zero risk of infection, the protocol outlined below has been developed weighing the health risks to our students, faculty, and their families with the benefits to their personal social, emotional, and physical needs.  If you prefer to enroll in online only courses, but still wish to receive a quality classical education, please follow this link for the Memoria Press Online Academy.
