This is our catalog of courses. We will occasionally adjust the course listing to reflect the addition of new courses and the retirement of others.
Register today to learn literature, American history, and the virtues of the pioneers – and have fun at the same time! We will spend two semesters reading the entire Little House series.
We will make our way through some of the best works of children’s literature ever written, reading the books in order of publication over two semesters. Mr. O’Brien will emphasize the literary aspect of the books (themes, characters, setting, etc.) as well as the historical and cultural values they convey – including lessons on Christian virtue.
Each week we will read and study our ways through these books!
