Latter-day Learning’s mission matches the mission of the school which sponsors it—American Heritage School.
We seek to assist parents to teach their children all academics in light of the restored gospel and follow the admonition of Brigham Young to Karl Maeser when he started Brigham Young Academy, “remember that you ought not to teach even the alphabet or the multiplication tables without the Spirit of God.” All curricula that we use seek to lay Christ and truths of the restored gospel at its foundation. We strive to strengthen faith by teaching children to look for God’s hand in all subjects—history, literature, science, etc. We teach English by reading sources that teach moral truths, and history as His Story (or Christ’s story) of preparing the earth for the restoration of the gospel and the Second Coming.
Our curriculum supports academic excellence and prepares children for a successful college experience. Our methodology teaches children to read and understand classics in all subjects, reason and discern between truth and error, apply truths learned to their own lives, and write persuasively and coherently.
Importantly, our curriculum also helps families see God’s hand in the founding of America and the writing of the U.S. Constitution. We want children to understand that America was established and preserved by the hand of God for the His purpose in restoring His church on the earth.
