About us

Our Mission

To provide an opportunity for every student to become an excellent writer.


Classical Composition is the result of teaching writing at Whitefield Academy in Overland Park, Kansas.  We have experienced wonderful results with the use of the curriculum you will find in these pages and strongly encourage others to try this classical approach.

Jim and Elaine Selby homeschooled for ten years and then have both been teaching in classical Christian schools.  Jim earned a B.A. from Oral Roberts University with majors in English Literature and New Testament Literature and a M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.  Elaine earned a B.A. from Oral Roberts University in English Literature and a Masters degree from Boston University in T.E.S.O.L.
