"But what if there was a single program that adequately covered key texts of Western literature; that was well-written, accurate, and Christ-centered; and that didn't just mimic all the other courses? Well, there is. Old Western Culture: A Christian Approach to the Great Books is everything other Classical-style courses wish they were." - Exodus Books, review on Old Western Culture
Students read and interact directly with the original works, but are guided by the commentary, analysis, and discernment of a master teacher in the form of in-depth video lectures and accompanying workbooks.
For centuries, the study of the great books defined what it meant to be educated. In fact, the "liberal arts" was the education of a free man. Give your children a "liberal" education in the oldest, truest sense of the word!
