Anchored in the Gospel and Moored to the Classics!
I feel that it is important for all of us could be better versed in the Bible, and in all God's revealed word. That is why I love that Moor House Academy's programs are anchored to the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ and are moored to the classics, those inspired writings of mankind. This gives me, my family, moms, homeschool children, and other children using Moor House Academy an easy to use resources that help move us through each of the four standard works. This can all happen before seminary age, so that seminary becomes a second witness.
Power of an Hour- A Four Year LDS Based Curriculum
We could have divided history up into seven dispensations- Adam, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Meridian of Time, Fullness of Times, and Millennium. We chose instead to create a four year cycle to dovetail with the four standard works, which moves from past, through the present, and the future. I feel it is important that families take the time to listen to and discuss conference talks, build a Gospel vocabulary, learn about noble people from church history, and memorize scripture mastery verses, as well.
Our Leap into the Love of Learning Class incorporates the Power of an Hour into a cottage school setting.

“Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life.” - Henry L. Doherty
