Conquering Corrupt Culture by Raising Christian Communicators, by Andrew Pudewa
Today, many of us have an intuitive sense that major changes are coming, that soon our world may be very different in ways not necessarily convenient or comfortable. But at the same time, we must wake up each day and live as though things will continue on pretty much as they are. Resolving this cognitive dissonance requires that we carefully contemplate our circumstances because we truly are in a cultural war, fighting the “non-gospel” of aesthetic and moral relativism on three fronts – personal, familial, and social. What should our priorities be, and how can we prepare our children to be “culture warriors?”

The Forgotten Subjects of Greatness, by Britton LaTulippe
If you have read any of the books in The Art of Raising Children for Greatness series, then you already know that there are two very different kinds of schools in the world: public schools, where children are raised for commonness, and elite prep schools, where children are raised to rule the world. So superior are the elite prep schools that our last four Presidents, Bush, Obama, Trump, and Biden, were all prep schoolers, even though prep schoolers only make up half a percent of the entire population.

Because prep schools cost $40,000-70,000 a year, most people imagine it’s all about the money. The high tuition buys better teachers, state-of-the-art facilities, and newer textbooks. But I know better. I attended an elite boarding school, and I can tell you that prep schoolers achieve greatness at the highest levels because they are taught the subjects of greatness. In my talk, I will reveal and explain the nine subjects of greatness so that you can bring the world of elite prep schooling into your homeschool.
