Providing the FreedomCivics course for schools - teaching about free enterprise and the principles and Founding Documents that

created the United States of America.

Our Mission

To educate Americans, especially those in schools,

about the principles on which our nation was founded,

about the documents created that declare those principles,

about the institutions necessary to fulfill them,

and that they were established to protect the rights

and freedoms we enjoy in perpetuity.



Working with historians, parents, writers and educators at various

levels for four years, we developed a 20-session civics course called FreedomCivicsTM. It is turn-key curriculum about free enterprise and the principles and Founding Documents of the United States of America.


We tested our curriculum in many schools.  It reads beautifully and includes discussion questions, activities, three quizzes and a final exam.  


We are launching the FreedomCivics course April 15, 2021, promoting 

the curriculum to high schools and colleges, including public, private

and home schools, through direct mail, phone sales and via this website.  (Wholesale rates will be given to school districts and to bookstores.

Based on donor support, we will provide the FreedomCivics course

for free to the schools who do not yet have funds budgeted for it.)


We have developed “legislative intent” language to be used by state legislators interested in passing laws requiring standalone civics classes.  Our goal is to have 20% of all high school students taking the FreedomCivics course by July 4, 2026, the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.


Eventually, we also plan to produce and regularly air short

educational messages on social media platforms that address,

for example, capitalism vs. socialism, the proper role of government,

and about the principles on which the Founders based the

Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.


We will continually improve FreedomCivics, as well as develop

other courses, such as the inaugural addresses of the first four presidents,

a course on The Federalist [Papers] and a course on the Magna Carta.
