About the Well-Trained Mind Academy
The Well-Trained Mind Academy was founded by Susan Wise Bauer to give parents of middle and high school students additional help in carrying out the goals of classical education. Susan holds a BA, MDiv, MA and PhD, the last two from The College of William and Mary in Virginia. Susan has drawn on her academic training, extensive research, two decades of home schooling four children through high school, her own past as a home schooled student, and over fifteen years of college teaching experience to help shape the Academy classes into rigorous, flexible training for middle and high school students.
The administration at WTMA works closely with students, parents, and instructors to create an educational environment that fits the needs of each family. All of our instructors have years of experience in teaching, tutoring, homeschooling, or a combination of all three. Our instructors are qualified in their fields; many have earned advanced degrees.
