This was probably 4 years ago. We just finished up Explorers-1815 and these self-paced history courses were the easy button portion of our school days. We’ll definitely be using the Omnibus SPs also. Thanks for putting them together. They’ve been a huge blessing to us. We keep asking our kids when we have a question about history. Joanne Laufenberg
The Veritas Press online self-paced history course is a fun history curriculum. This course freed me up. There was almost nothing for me to do other than make sure we had any historical fiction books I wanted my son to read. Even though I didn’t HAVE to do anything with the course, I must admit I enjoyed listening in on some of the lessons and even learned a bit from them too! Trisha Gilkerson

Additional Resources

  • Veritas Press History Flashcards

    These beautiful cards provide the same 32 events studied in each course and all the material learned by the student. Studying for exams and general review are greatly aided with them.

  • Pages of History

    Written as historical fiction this two volume series follows the adventures of two young boys traveling through all the events of the five courses. The first volume covers the first three history courses and the second volume the last two. Both are written to look at history as God intends, the unfolding of His plan. An excellent way for children to see how historical events connect. A great read-aloud and very enjoyable.

  • Historical Fiction

    Historical fiction book collections are available for each course. They are not necessary but very enjoyable and helpful in building the context of what the courses cover. Avid readers won’t want to miss them. Each course includes two collections of historical fiction—one for older grammar school students (grades 4 -6) and one for younger ones (grades 2-3).
