Students will get...

Introductory videos on each major philosopher by R.C. Sproul from his popular Consequences of Ideas series.

Readings from each philosopher and from John Frame’s monumental History of Western Philosophy to reinforce a Christian worldview of what you're reading.

A mixture of assignments, articles, quizzes and research projects to reinforce learning.

Ideas have consequences, and worldviews matter.

We put this course together because of the rise of ideology over truth in the public square. We think the best way for students to understand these powerful ideas is to let them read the actual authors, then provide wise Christian commentary to help explain them. 

The course would be an excellent capstone for high school students who want to put together all the pieces they’ve accumulated across disciplines like science, literature, history, and art. They will come out of the survey more informed about the ideas that shape our world. Like the Apostle Paul, we want them to “destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:5, ESV)

What Families Are Saying

“We love how the teacher conveys lofty ideas in such a simple way.”


“Source reading, writing assignments, and tests provided made it a well-rounded half-credit course.”
