Reviving American Classical K-12 Education
Hillsdale College's K-12 Education Office helps to launch and support classical K-12 charter and private schools nationwide. There are currently over 70 Hillsdale Classical Schools in 27 states, with additional schools opening each year. These schools feature a classical curriculum that includes a strong American civics component, with an emphasis on the liberal arts and cultivating moral and intellectual virtue.
Another part of our work to revive American classical K-12 education is found in the Hillsdale 1776 Curriculum, a collection of lesson plans and resources for teaching American history and government in grades K-12. This curriculum is available free of charge and has been downloaded to date by over 100,000 school administrators, teachers, and homeschool parents.
In keeping with its principles, Hillsdale College operates all of its K-12 educational outreach without accepting one penny of taxpayer funding. Hillsdale’s assistance to classical K-12 schools—from start-up to opening to ongoing academic support—is offered as a free-of-charge service to assist those who share our dedication to educational excellence. Will you lend your support to these worthy endeavors?
Your gift toward the K-12 American classical education endowment would be matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis through a $1.65 million challenge grant issued by friends of Hillsdale College.
