"As a homeschooling teacher with a California teaching credential and over 40 years of teaching experience, I can't give enough plaudits to Anne Van Fossen and her remarkable ability to teach." Barbara S.
"Mrs. V's Greek class is ... AWESOME!!! I would highly recommend her and her class over any language courses that I have recently taken." Blake N.
"Latin is my children's favorite class. I am amazed at how much they have learned this year. It has been so much more than just learning another language and the best part is they've really had fun!" Brandi M.
"Learning a new language can be extremely frustrating; what I appreciate about the classes at CLRC is that my children are not frustrated as they learn. Anne is sensitive to their learning styles; as she introduces new concepts, she spends the needed time with them. Things move at a nice pace, but when there is that bump-in-the-road she is sensitive to slow down for her students." Cheryl G.
"Studying Greek through CLRC has been an amazing experience! Despite successfully completing three demanding years in Biola's Torrey Academy, I found myself challenged by the rigors of the CLRC Greek course, while simultaneously energized and sharpened." Jordan Joanna
"Although I have confidently homeschooled my children from Kindergarten through high school in all subject areas, I am incredibly grateful to have chosen CLRC for Latin. Observing my daughter's class time and course material, I am certain I could not have achieved the high level of instruction she experienced through CLRC on my own." BMS
"Since I began studying Latin just a few months back, I am amazed to find myself encountering new words daily which I can now correctly decipher because I have learned their Latin roots. Working on Latin derivatives has definitely expanded my vocabulary beyond what I could have imagined in the seventh grade." Ellena S.
“I have worked with Subdeacon John and Anne Van Fossen for the past eight years. Their commitment to Christian education is extraordinary and the programs they have developed are among the best that I have ever seen.”

“With children of their own and years of experience at St. John of Damascus Academy in Santa Barbara, John and Anne Van Fossen know what it takes to tailor a classical education to a child's interests and needs. I cannot imagine two people better suited to fan the flame of learning in young people finding their way in the wilderness of this world."

“I met John and Anne Van Fossen years ago through a summer conferences of educators, and since that time they have become a great encouragement and support to me in my own efforts to build an Orthodox school. They are truly teachers at heart having taught and created curricular materials for a variety of subject areas and age groups.
Within the world of classical and liberal arts Christian schools the Van Fossens are well known, being participants in many seminars and colloquia related to issues of importance to private schools. They have vision, creativity, intellect, and hearts clearly devoted to the Church.”
