Ascent Classical Academies will host renowned physician, psychologist, and author Dr. Leonard Sax, MD, PhD, on its Colorado campuses May 15-16, 2023.
Dr. Sax has authored four books to date, including Boys Adrift, Girls on the Edge, and the New York Times bestseller The Collapse of Parenting. He has appeared as a guest on the TODAY show, CNN, PBS, and Fox News multiple times as well as other national and international media outlets.
