A Classical Education Model
Homeschool moms and dads are superheroes. Life gets busy. Your time is valuable. Here are tools to make your life easier, efficient, and effective.
Because young children begin learning through memorizing words and repeating things over and over again, Claritas Publishing wrote their curriculum to support that developmental phase of a child’s life. In the classical education model, this is known as the grammar stage.
Claritas Publishing has written 4 cycles. Each cycle contains memory work covering the following: Scripture, Hymns, Math, History, Science, English, Latin, Geography, and a Timeline. Each cycle consists of 28 weeks of material, which covers an entire year. The memory includes engaging tunes so that everyone listening will be able to recall the information remarkably fast.
Cross Seven began developing videos based off Claritas Publishing curriculum. We are now able to share the videos through a subscription.
You will be amazed by the results you will see when you faithfully have your children review the materials.

What about co-op groups? How do I find a group in my area? Can I start my own group?
Claritas Publishing and Cross Seven do not regulate, oversee, or otherwise govern the groups, co-ops, or schools that choose to use the material. We do not charge fees. We do, however, require that those using our material purchase (own) our material… so, if your child is using our memory work, you need to own either a Memory Work Guide or you need to subscribe to the relevant cycle on CrossSeven.org. These are the only ways to purchase Claritas’ memory work.
To find a group or individuals near you, please email email@example.com
What version of the Bible is used for Scripture?
What about the fees and such associated with using Claritas?
We do ask that you help preserve and protect our rights by not borrowing material from a friend without paying for it; by not copying material for or from a friend; by purchasing a Memory Work Guide for your family to use (new from us or used from a friend) or by purchasing the appropriate subscription from CrossSeven.org; by not sharing (online or otherwise) materials you’ve created for your own family’s use without first asking Claritas Publishing to see if this would break copyright laws. Thank you!
What about a Latin curriculum and Latin Pronunciation?
As for pronunciation: When our Latin memory work refers to Scripture or Church creeds we use Ecclesiastical pronunciation; when we are learning Latin conjugations, declensions, etc. we use the Classical pronunciation. This may seem odd but we appreciate exposing students to both pronunciations and they are not confused by it. So, on our audio CDs you will hear both forms of pronunciation depending upon the subject matter.
