The Great Books Academy is a Homeschool Program for nursery-12th graders.
All students are welcome. Founded in A.D. 2000, we offer a complete, home study curriculum including all subjects. We offer various online classes for grades 1st-8th as well.
Beginning in the 9th grade we also offer an entirely online homeschool program–the Greats Honors Program-for any students who prefer an online approach, which includes all courses through 12th grade and online lectures by many famous teachers, for all subjects, and also includes weekly, live, online tutorials with our Academy tutors. All 9th grade students may choose either our conventional homeschool program or our online homeschool program.
In 9th grade, and up, all students may begin our Great Books Program. Each week, students and two of our moderators meet online for a live, two-hour discussion of the Great Books reading. Our four-year Great Books Program may be taken for high school credit or college credit by homeschoolers and all others.
