Fathom the Good gives your child Wisdom against the World.

Children are our future, yet the world deprives them of much needed wisdom from the past.

To help them see clearly amid the world’s ideological confusion, young hearts and minds must be opened to the question of the Good, a question first contemplated by the ancients,  Plato and Aristotle. This was the question of human purposes–higher human purposes, a question the modern world ignores or represses. 

Grounded in the Western philosophical tradition, including the American Founding, Fathom the Good’s classical approach provides a deep understanding of the Good. Through direct engagement with carefully chosen philosophical texts, Fathom goes to the heart of the human condition.  

We do this by using Reasoning Tools and Mentoring Videos, which build the student’s capacity for critical thinking, teaching reading, writing, and debating skills in ways that engage the child’s natural interest. As skills increase, students are able to approach increasingly complex texts and seriously probing questions independently.

And as knowledge and the power to reason increases, so, too does the child’s confidence in the Good of God’s creation.

 If children are to live in the world without becoming products of it, then education must involve the whole family. Podcasts for Parents provide busy parents with a general understanding (and additional insights) of what their children are learning.

 And our Family Discussion Guide assists parents in having meaningful conversations with their children of all ages. 

 Join us as we “Fathom the Good,” reigniting in children, and in their families, the question of what is most essential to restoring moral goodness, which is the only real foundation of American freedom.

 The question of “the Good,” central to all that Fathom does, is the starting point for your child’s better tomorrow.

We started Factor because teenagers everywhere are underestimated and underchallenged. You don’t have to look far to see breakouts building engaged communities, personal media empires, and six-figure businesses. But they’re the exceptions.

Not of talent, but of opportunity.

These exceptional teens have the time, space, and support structure to go far beyond what they learn in school. They’re driven, relentlessly curious, and bending the world around them.

With Factor, we’re building the environment so any teen who’s ready to work has the same shot.

We’re starting with online fellowships and discovery weekends, with IRL businesses tours, skill camps, and apprenticeships in some of the best cities around the world.

Eventually, if we do our jobs right, we hope Factor will become a core part of every high school experience.

At Troomi, our vision sees beyond the fear inherent in these dangers. With dogged hope and optimism for the potential of every child, we focus our energy on finding better ways to introduce technology to kids. We believe ours is a movement that will help millions of kids achieve their dreams and live happy, healthy and balanced lives.

To provide a technology environment in which kids can thrive, we spent a year developing KidSmart OS™, an Android-based operating system that empowers parents with an extremely easy, powerful and flexible set of parental controls—all while eliminating social media, addictive games, pornography and incoming access for predators and bullies.

Imagine starting younger kids with a very limited phone experience that consists of talk and text only —but with ZERO spam calls and spam messages—while providing the flexibility necessary to graduate children from one level of responsibility to the next based on needs and maturity. That’s what we have created—a phone that grows with your child without having to replace hardware.

It offers only a single degree, a BA in Classical Liberal Arts. Their curriculum is based on the Great Books and the Great Ideas that have moved civilization forward through the centuries.

Over the course of their four-year academic program, students will have an opportunity to engage in the application of classical knowledge and insights to the practical problems of modern life. Mount Liberty College (MLC) strongly believes that a classical education is not only compatible with career success but essential to it.

RightStart™ for Home School
This unique, award-winning, hands-on program de-emphasizes counting, uses visualization of quantities, and provides strategies and visual pictures for learning the facts. Understanding and problem solving are emphasized throughout the curriculum.

The primary learning tool is the AL Abacus, a specially designed two-sided abacus that is both kinesthetic and visual. The AL Abacus is grouped in fives and tens for quick recognition of quantities. The second side of the AL Abacus teaches place value to the thousands. Children develop visual strategies as they use this manipulative.

Practice is provided with math card games, minimizing review worksheets and eliminating stressful flash cards. These games provide interesting and varied repetition that is needed for the automatic responses to the facts. More importantly, these games provide an application for new information and create hours of fun learning math facts and concepts.

Twenty five additional materials are used in the RightStart™ program. This allows the child to approach topics in a variety of ways, creating understanding and building critical connections.

Abacus and worksheet boyThe RightStart™ Mathematics homeschool program is set up with levels, rather than grades, so that your child can begin at the proper level and advance at their own pace. Placement testing is available here. Objectives, Table of Contents and sample lessons can reviewed here.

The RightStart™ Mathematics program is based on Dr. Cotter’s research and has been used in a recent study in Finland. Do you want to know what others are saying about the curriculum? We have forums, curriculum reviews, and testimonials for your review.

On March 1, 1989, the direct selling division was created to concentrate exclusively on selling Usborne books. In late 2008, EDC acquired Kane Miller Publishing, an internationally known publisher of children’s books with over 20 years in the industry.

Today, Usborne Books & More distributes books through thousands of independent consultants who sell directly to the consumer via home shows, direct sales, book fairs, and web sites.

Homeschool Legal Defense Association believes that every child deserves a quality education—and homeschooling is one of the best ways to achieve that.

No other form of education allows the kind of customization and personalization that homeschooling does. As a homeschooling parent, you are free to teach your child at her own pace, follow her interests, and craft an education plan that meets her specific needs. The result is a unique educational experience that equips your child with the skills and opportunities she needs to really thrive.

We also believe that parents are typically better suited than the government to determine what kind of education works best for their children. Parents know their children’s needs and abilities much better than any government official can—and they’re better able to find ways to meet those needs and nurture those abilities. And so when parents are free to choose and direct their children’s educational experience, it sets the stage for children to thrive.

Wealth education resources to help every member of your family be the hero of their own success story.

Introduce wealth principles to your family that schools do not teach

Since the start of the Industrial Revolution we have been told to go to school and get good grades, get a degree, get a job earning lots of money, and save every dime we can for our entire lives… all so that we can retire when we are 65 and live the life we want to live. Have any of you heard that before?

That is the storyline that we have been told leads to SAFETY, SECURITY, and SUCCESS. However, that has never been the way to find success, 

THAT IS THE STORYLINE OF HOW NOT TO BE POOR
