American Treasure

Rediscovering the Spirit of 1776

"Where America's Founding Principles Come to Life!"

Project American Life engages young hearts and minds by vividly illumining the Ideas and Ideals of our unique Republic.  Experiential discoveries kindle heartfelt gratitude for the many sacrifices made throughout America's rich history.  In turn, students begin realizing their manifold opportunities and civic responsibilities.  In seizing these moral requirements of American Citizenship, students yearn to join a chorus of heroes... serving a cause greater than self.

Project American Life is... "Building the City on a Hill!"

Testimonials

"This is an outstanding program in all regards -- well organized and well thought out.  I especially like 'The Citizenship Game' and 'In Search for America' as these simulations bring the study of government and history to life for the kids. One of my students said to me, 'I wish we could do all our school like this, because then we'd remember!"

Barbara DeHaye, Huntsville Teacher

"I learned that I can do anything. I can accomplish my dreams, and I am starting now. I will remember the songs we sang, the games we played, and the things we talked about, which will always, always stay with me. I would like to thank everybody, because this is a trip that has changed my life."

Ashley, 6th Grader

"This is an exceptional program of remarkable value.  To instill in children the concept that they can and should lead a meaningful life is beautiful.  Life is a precious gift, to be lived with purpose.  Those who have grasped, or at least started on the road to grasping this, are headed toward a fantastic journey of life.  I teared up on several occasions, moved by the power of the concepts described to the children.  To present such ideals to children at their age has, indeed, the potential to change the world.  I leave the program with a renewed sense of purpose in my own life."
