Study Constitutional Law this Fall with Michael Farris!

This Internet-based course follows Michael Farris’ textbook, Constitutional Law for Enlightened Citizens, and uses Dr. Farris’ new in-depth Constitutional Literacy DVD series.

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

As a citizen, it is your duty to understand the proper function of our government in order to support representatives who will fulfill their oath to defend your liberty and to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Events in the past year alone, from the revelation of widespread domestic spying to Supreme Court’s holding that the government’s taxing power is virtually unlimited, demonstrate the extent to which our leaders have spurned the Founders’ Constitution for one of their own making. Now, more than ever, is the time to equip yourself for this duty!

Michael Farris

Michael Farris’ online course, Constitutional Law for Enlightened Citizens, is the perfect resource for any student wishing to understand both the constitutional bounds of government and the way in which the Supreme Court has interpreted those bounds. Geared toward high school students and designed to provide an entire credit of study in government, this course makes an excellent addition to a homeschool curriculum, but also presents a great opportunity for those whose formal education has ended.

Here are Some Things Students are Saying

“Enlightened, motivated, and challenged … these words sum up my Constitutional Law experience. As a homeschool mom of three, I wanted to take a course that would be challenging and satisfy my need for a much-needed civics refresher. I have learned so much and renewed my love for the history of our country, specifically the Constitution and how its original meaning is just as applicable today as in 1789 … Dr. Farris is a modern-day Founding Father with a love for the Lord and our country’s history and future. If you are considering this class but not sure, I say ... ‘Just Do It!’ Don’t be a talker, take action! Your country needs you!’

—Heather/Florida

“The best thing about the class ‘Constitutional Law for Enlightened Citizens’ is that no matter where you are going or what you are planning to be in life, this class applies to you. … Before this class, I was not aware of how far away from the Constitution we as a nation had gone. Not only did this course open my eyes to this fact, but it has also repeatedly emphasized that the solution to our runaway government is in our hands. As the citizens of the United States it is our duty to keep the government where it’s supposed to be. I’d say that this course is a must-see for all of America. America needs more enlightened citizens!”

—Sharleen/Washington

In the 25-part DVD series that goes along with this course, Dr. Farris walks through the constitutional history and legal theory that are essential to American self-government. It is perfect for watching as a family, so even those who aren’t specifically enrolled in the class can learn and benefit from this resource.

With the Constitutional Law Course package, you get this $95 DVD series for almost half off! Tuition is $300 for HSLDA members and $325 for non-HSLDA members, which includes the required textbook and DVD set. There are also sibling and family discounts!

How Many Acorns Can a Chipmunk Hold in its Cheeks?

We don’t know! But we do know that gathering little by little enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle is behind HSLDA’s payment plan: by paying a month at a time, families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities—their children. Don’t go nuts trying to pay for membership all at once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
