Constitutional Academy 2013
Your Liberty. Your Future.
July 15-20, 2013
The Academy is the nation’s premier program for high school students to study the Constitution and has been enjoyed by numerous home schooled students – see what they had to say about the program:
“[The Constitutional Academy] has changed my perspective from merely a citizen of the United States to a guardian and protector of freedom and justice. I feel more a part of my government than ever, and feel passionate about passing my knowledge along to others (not to mention discovering even more for myself!)” – Caroline, home school student from Texas
“The Constitutional Academy has helped me provide a practical context to my ideas about being a citizen of the United States. Most of all, it has made me more appreciative of the difficult process by which our government was established.” – Andrew, 2011 home school alumnus
