Resources for Teachers, Homeschoolers, and History Lovers

The Heritage Classical Curriculum is a versatile course of study that blends a traditional 'Charlotte Mason' approach to reading with modern "high-tech" learning tools. The curriculum is composed of about ten Study Programs. The books associated with each program can be found in the Heritage Library, and information about other Resources, such as maps and timelines, is on this page.

The Heritage Curriculum is intended to be flexible so it can be useful to students with a wide range of interests and abilities. The study programs can be used as formal, semester-long courses or perused for personal interest. Several programs have even been incorporated into History Quest, a quiz game that provides a way for students to review what they have learned and earn medals for proficiency.

Heritage Study Programs are organized by historical topic and are composed of student histories, reading recommendations, maps, timelines, character lists, and other reference material. Direct links to the Study Aids for most of our programs are provided below. For more complete information about reading recommendations, historical divisions, and sample questions, refer to the associated Study Program page.

The programs described on this page are intended for students in Middle School or above. Students who are too young for comprehensive history may benefit from Heritage History's Young Readers program. It covers a broad range of historical topics in an enjoyable, easy-to-understand manner appropriate for novice readers.
