Brief Lukeion History

The Lukeion Project began in 2005 by Classical archaeologists Regan & Amy Barr. Since then our course catalog has grown considerably with the expertise of an ever growing group of dedicated instructors. Our courses are vividly illustrated and interactive. All classes are taught by experienced specialists in their fields.

Do not expect "talking-head" classes! Sessions are interactive, and include high quality, professional graphics that engage today’s visual-learning generation. Our courses feature the very best benefits of online convenience and live instruction and teacher interaction. Courses are kept small (an average of 30 or fewer). Instructors are always happy to answer student questions during our live sessions and by email after the session ends. Our courses feature the best benefits of online convenience and live instruction with educator interaction.

Family Travel with The Lukeion Project

Marco leads group in PompeiiWe believe that travel is the best educational gift you can give a child. Every May the founders of The Lukeion Project, Regan and Amy Barr, load up a private bus and tour a portion of the Classical world. The most unique part of our trip each year is that we invite families (children should be 8 or older, recommended age is 12 and up) to travel together with us. We handle the logistics while you and your family get to enjoy the adventure. We welcome students ages 17 and up do not require an adult chaperone. Adults and couples are also invited to travel with us. You need not be enrolled at The Lukeion Project to travel with us.
