Explore Tapestry of Grace
Tapestry of Grace is a plan of study that helps parents provide a Christian, classical education using a guided unit-study approach, with the history of the world as the core organizational theme. Students in grades K-12 cycle through world history every four years, with all ages studying the same slice of history each week, each at his own learning level. Detailed assignments and discussion outlines enable parents to become their children's primary teachers and mentors by shaping their biblical worldview.

Philosophy of Education

Tapestry of Grace exists to help parents discern the threads and patterns in the tapestry of time woven by God in ages past. Through the study and discussion of chronological history, we teach our children the facts, thoughts, and experiences of humankind as they unfolded. This organizational framework encompasses most of what our children need to learn. After all, everything we want to teach them happened in history!

Using components of Classical Education, resources are arranged for learning levels — stages, not ages. This method moves busy teaching parents from solely administering their homeschools to becoming their children's teachers; the crucial Christian worldview training, for which most parents embark on homeschool journeys, is put back where it always belonged - in their hands! All subjects are interrelated (since they all come from the hand of God), but they need not all be studied at the same level at all times. God's story is simultaneously simple and complex.

Parents can successfully teach humanities subjects to all of their children simultaneously because the content has been well organized. Also, remember that content is not the only thing — not even the primary thing — being taught. Parents are primarily seeking to make disciples of their children and secondarily to give them skills that will enable them to succeed at whatever God may call them to do in His service.
