This 1828 facsimile reprint of the first American Dictionary documents the quality of Biblical education which raised up American statesmen capable of forming our Constitutional Republic. Webster traced roots in twenty-six languages, and gives examples from classical literature and the Bible. Comprehensive introductions are presented for language and grammar. It has been described by one Christian scholar as “the greatest reprint of the twentieth century.” The added biography by Rosalie Slater, “Noah Webster, Founding Father of American Scholarship and Education,” describes his contribution to many fields and records his conversion to Christ.
In Year 2, we study The Middle Ages in order to follow the noble stream of liberty. We emphasize the history of the Christian church and its impact on the world. The timeframe begins at the early Christian church and the Roman Republic. Students trace the people and events that brought forth liberty. We begin with the Roman Republic and the Heroic Age of the Church, and finish the year with the Age of Exploration.
Students will learn about the growth, persecution and martyrdom of the early church. Also, the characteristics of a mini-republic, form of church government, church councils, development of church doctrine and the
canonization of the Bible are overviewed. We look at Mohammed, the basic tenets of Islam and the Crusades. We befriend men whose faithfulness God used to transform entire nations, such as; St. Patrick, Charlemagne and King Alfred. The Magna Carta is studied as a key stepping stone on the Pathway to Liberty.
Beginning with the Roman Republic, we study the advances of Rome and it’s decline. We answer questions like;
How did the Gospel change individual’s lives?
What relationship does the gospel have on a nation’s form of government?
How was God working in history to transform men and nations?
How does an individual’s internal character influence their external environment?
How an individual answers these questions is the framework in which he or she reasons and relates to the world and life events.
Pathway to Liberty is a holistic curriculum covering Bible, history, character, writing, vocabulary and geography.
Join us in laying a solid foundation on which your student can build for a lifetime.

As is their custom, the d’Aulaires have thoroughly researched their subject in order to provide the most historically accurate account of the life of the man Samuel Eliot Morrison called “the greatest mariner that ever lived.” In their pursuit, the d’Aulaires traveled to Spain, Portugal, and the Caribbean Islands to research original documents on the life of Columbus. Their text reflects many little- known facts not generally included in the typical biographies of Columbus. Readers will learn that it was the saga of Leif Erickson that was one of the inspirations for Columbus’s voyage to the East. They will also learn that Columbus was such a skilled astronomer that he knew the exact date when the next eclipse of the moon was and used that knowledge to his advantage. They will also learn that though “Columbus was a great man, he was not a modest man. He wanted too much, and so he did not get enough” (54). This book is lavishly illustrated with the d’Aulaire’s detailed lithographs in four colors. 54pg
Considered one of the finest works of Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire, Leif the Lucky will delight both children and adults with the story of Leif, son of Erik the Red, who sailed with his father and a Viking crew to Greenland and then farther west to the continent of America.

Written in the spirit of the ancient sagas and rich in color and detail, Leif the Lucky is a fascinating biography of the young Viking explorer.
