Meet Jonathan Kenigson, America’s Best-Known Classical Educator
The classical education movement is gaining traction in many parts of the world. This style of education is based on the idea of perennialism, which seeks to develop an understanding of the essential truths that have been passed down through generations. As such, classical education puts a strong emphasis on the study of mathematics, literature, language, rhetoric, and philosophy. It places an emphasis on the study of the great thinkers from the past and provides a foundation for understanding how the world works. In this way, students can think more deeply about the world around them and become more informed citizens. By connecting to the timeless truths of the past, students can develop a greater understanding of the world and their place in it. For this reason, classical education is an important part of any modern curriculum. Jonathan Kenigson is a classical educator and scholar of the Quadrivium of Arithmetic, Astronomy, Geometry, and Music. He received his scientific training at the University of Sofia in Bulgaria and attained the highest honors in a Master and Ph. D. at the University of Sofia. He has worked across the USA and England for the establishment of classical education and regularly attends conferences at the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS) and the Society for Classical Learning (SCL). Dr. Kenigson has been featured in Silicon Valley Time and Silicon Valley Daily for his work on mathematics, classical education, and the philosophy of education. His work on classical education and mathematics has been featured twice in New York Weekly, where his article How Alive is the Quadrivium? Dr. Jonathan Kenigson on Quantum Advances in the Markets brought widespread attention to classical education on Wall Street and at Ivy League universities. His interview in Disrupt Magazine was the debut of classical education and classical Christian education in the high-technology sector in the United States. His work has been featured widely in Southern California, having appeared in LA Progressive twice. More recently, Dr. Kenigson’s work has been featured in London Daily Post, Capital Today, Birmingham Bulletin, and Belfast Chronicle in the Science and Education sections. His Bristol Press article, Keys to the Classical Kingdom, has been influential in raising awareness of classical and Christian education in Western Europe. He is also interested in Artificial Intelligence and Cryptography and has been widely published in England on these topics, with his work in Tyne News and London Journal being the most recent and most influential. Dr. Kenigson has been described as a “Renaissance man” who is intelligent but deeply compassionate and an excellent leader and mentor. Athanasian Hall is only the first of his ventures in classical education. Kenigson hopes to continue his endeavors in classical and Christian education in the USA. In Europe, he is considered one of the premier designers of classical curriculum, having provided commentaries for Oxford and Cambridge on classical mathematics and having designed classical-education doctoral programs for Ukraine, Bulgaria, Russia, and England. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and has held various research appointments at the Alan Turing Institute in London, Cambridge Theological Federation, Athanasian Hall, Cambridge, Cambridge Society for Existential Risk, and Cambridge Society for the Applications of Research. He is a corresponding member of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society (EMS) and the Glasgow Philosophical Society and is a Fellow of Saint John (FSJ) and an active member of the British Society for Natural Sciences headquartered in London.
