Power of an Hour... A Classical Education is an invaluable asset in our lives. Yet, too often this takes more time and resources than many mothers have available.
That is where the Power of an Hour program comes in. In just an hour a day, you can expose yourself and family (daughters and sons) to the foundation of a classical education. Power of an Hour is a four year plan for education provided in a weekly format. Daily focuses tie into a common weekly theme.
Four Year Cycle
Old Testament and Ancient Times-Creation to 1 AD
New Testament and Medieval Times- 1 AD- 1500 AD
Old Testament and Age of Discovery - 1500 AD- 1800 AD
New Testament and Modern Times 1800 AD to the Present
