What others are saying
“Nobody else summarizes the Biblical perspective on the classics like Keys to the Classics — it is short and right to the point. It’s nice to know that you’ve picked out what is important so I don’t have to read so much. The analysis is very good with the focus on what the Bible says about the function of the state.” Adelaide Smith, Homeschool Grandmother.
“What an exciting project! We are grateful for all your work and input. This looks so good! This is what we have been praying for for these grades. I would like to know how I can help you develop this project.”
Christine Field, Homeschool mom, Author of homeschooling books, and former attorney.
Woods has done us all a great service by writing this balanced, comprehensive, easy-to-understand and intensely practical handbook to the subject of civil government from a Christian perspective. Marked by biblical fidelity, political sagacity and cultural immediacy. [referring to our online American Government/History text: “Discipling the Nations”].
George Grant, Christian Author, Kings Meadow Study Center.
Woods does a fine job of introducing the modern Christian reader to some of the complex issues which lead to our current political and cultural impasse. Contrary to the received opinion, our problem did not begin in the sixties, unless you mean the 1760s. Woods has written a very fine introduction to biblical thinking on constitutional issues. [Referring to our online American Government/History text: “Discipling the Nations”] Judging from Woods’ past work, I look forward to watching the growth of ClassicalFree Academy.
Douglas Wilson, Author of “Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning” and Founder of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS).
Every Christian parent should examine this new offering. The opportunities for a solid grounding in the Christian Worldview are unlimited. Theologically, ClassicalFree Academy is solidly and uncompromisingly grounded in the historic Reformation, with no trace of the deadly Enlightenment and egalitarian influences which affect so many otherwise excellent offerings.
Raymond Joseph, Pastor (RPC)
Nothing– may I say that again?– nothing is more important in the battle for our covenant future than faithful covenant education. And no recent tool has held more potential than the Internet to help an increasingly scattered people of God fulfill their education mandate. The potential of Classical Free Virtual Academy is enormous. Get on board. Hold the feet of the providers to the fire, pressuring them to stay on track, to keep offering the best, and to charge (whatever) as needed. The important thing is that we fulfill the mandate to educate our children in Christ. What a powerful means this could be with your involvement.
Steve Schlissel (Pastor/overseer of Urban Nations)
Every once in a while, someone provides a service to the Christian community which, if utilized, promises to be one of those few invaluable experiences that help determine the character of our lives. The ClassicalFree Virtual Academy is such a service for parents who understand the incredible significance of a child’s education. The goal of the Academy is an ambitious one, indeed, and its success depends primarily upon discerning parents who recognize a golden opportunity. The ClassicalFree Virtual Academy is an excellent combination of technology and a proven educational philosophy.
Jim Bordwine, Th.D., Pastor (PCA)
Thank God ClassicalFree Virtual Academy has given the church a solid Christian alternative to the secular public education curriculum. Students completing this curriculum will run circles around their secular peers as well as outperform many public education teachers. This curriculum does a great job of exceeding state teaching standards while being built on a solid biblical foundation.

“Let me tell you how delighted I was to come across your website. About 4 years ago I bought a complete set of Harvard Classics for $1 at a library booksale. I have been trying for years to figure out a way to incorporate them into my homeschooling efforts without success. I knew I would need to interpret all that literature from a biblical worldview and have never felt secure that I could do so. What a joy to discover your courses.”
Kathleen A. Dillie, Homeschool Mother

“Keep up the wonderful work! May the Lord continue to bless you in all your endeavors.”
“My husband and I homeschool our children and a very Godly older gentleman who lives with us is teaching our two oldest girls history using your book, “Discipling the Nations”. He loves it. He has invested a lot of time preparing for each class. He has them read other sources like “The Law” by Frederik Bastiat and made them write summaries of each chapter. My husband oversees them and all of them are excited and impressed with what they are being presented. Thank you for your work in this area. I pray many parents will have their eyes opened and run from the government schools. What a joy it is to teach my children the truth.”
Betsy Boyce, Home School Mother

“I’ve been wanting to express my gratitude to you. My sister and I have been very blessed by the Lord through you. He has used you as a great instrument to open our eyes to see the “real picture” of history and present life. We have learned so much from your works along with Pastor Raymond’s guide. May God give us the wisdom to apply the Truth in every aspect of our lives, and most importantly may He used us as His great instruments to advance the Kingdom of Christ on earth as it is in heaven. Thank you.”
