Reclaiming True Education


Four evenings, June 25-28 in our

Chesapeake, VA classroom and live online, 7:00-8:30 pm EST


Without a thorough knowledge of the history of education in our nation since its 1607 founding one cannot begin to propose ultimate solutions in education. This course examines the true story of American education to identify the root of the problems we face today and to highlight the means and the pathway of restoring the principles and character of our Republic.


Monday: The Amazing Power of Biblical Christian Education and its Impact on America (1515-1650) is examined through the lives and works of two relatively unknown Reformers Peter Ramus and William Ames. We will discover how Amesian theology empowered by the Ramean “method” formed the American church, culture, and practice of education at home and in schools. Ramus and Ames embodied the reforms in theology and education that became the two pillars of the education of Noah Webster and the American founders. Taught by Dr. Carole Adams.


Tuesday: What Makes Biblical Christian Education Flourish? We will examine the Colonial or Calvinist period (1607-1890) of education in America. During this time education developed out of the Pilgrim and Puritan desire to teach children to read the Bible so that they could apply its knowledge to every area of life: family, church, vocation, business, marketplace activities and civil government. American Christian education developed and flourished due to the tireless efforts of founding father Noah Webster, the “schoolmaster to the nation.” Taught by Dr. Max Lyons.


Wednesday: Reclaiming the Original Purpose of American Education, Part 1. What went wrong? Why did Americans abandon private, mostly Christian education, practiced for two centuries, for statist education? How did Marx’s ideas and socialism creep into textbooks, lectures, and our children’s minds and hearts? In our study of education from 1830-1890, we will learn the story, motivations and worldview of Horace Mann, who advocated “non-sectarian education” resulting in the ultimate abandonment of Biblically based education.  Taught by Dr. Max Lyons.


Thursday: Reclaiming the Original Purpose of American Education, Part 2.   John Dewey and the Progressives took things a step further with their vision of the total secularism of American education, giving us a philosophy, curriculum and methodology divorced from Biblical truth. The results have been profound, reaching into every area of society: the family, church, economy, civil government, the media, the arts, and more. Taught by Gary Porter.                                                             

The cost of the course is $35 (individual or family) which includes: lectures, handouts, a copy of the PowerPoint slides, and a video recording of all lectures. The course content is suitable for high school students and older. To register, go to
