Great education comes from caring, expert teachers and inspiring curriculum. American Heritage Home and Distance Education – an LDS-oriented, accredited, K-12 program – delivers on this. The program is distinguished from many other programs in three important ways:
1) Caring, Expert Mentoring. American Heritage courses are developed by expert teachers who interact with students, including personal, 20-minute, weekly consultations in most 7-12 classes (conducted in a virtual meeting online). Families enrolled in grades K-6 may also request teacher involvement. Booker T. Washington wrote, “The older I grow, the more I am convinced that there is no education which one can get from books and costly apparatus that is equal to that which can be gotten from contact with great men and women” (Up From Slavery, Chapter 3: “The Struggle for an Education”). Mentoring and instruction from great teachers who serve as “living textbooks” is a central feature of American Heritage’s Home and Distance Education Program.
2) LDS-Oriented Curriculum. The curriculum is fundamentally designed to help students make connections to the restored gospel, thereby inviting truths to be indelibly impressed on their hearts and minds, which helps protect youth from corrosive influences. American Heritage’s fundamental use of LDS scripture is a key feature of every course and lesson.
3) America’s Heritage of Faith and Liberty. A focus on America’s Christian Heritage of faith and liberty is another key advantage of AHS courses. The Principles of “conscience is the most sacred of all property,” Christian character, and “how the seed of local self-government is planted” are drawn out of primary source historiographies and classical literary texts. Students are inspired by great men and women of history and literature, and they learn to take their place in the Plan of Salvation and fulfill their unique God-given missions.
