"Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country." 1788 On Education of Youth in America

All of our programs are tailored to be age appropriate for students and geared to meet the historical interests of adults.
By partnering with schools and other community organizations, our goal is to encourage and support the development of youth and adult activities that will assist in the enjoyment of learning. All educational programs will meet the needs of the entire community including all ages. The largest component of our programs will focus on the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, the Revolutionary war era, the role of women and African Americans in the Revolution and interesting stories rarely told.
The American Spirit Education Alliance (ASEA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of our American heritage. Our mission is to cultivate increased appreciation for and awareness of Colonial American history and the concepts, ideas, and principles that informed the Framers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. We bring to life the colonial period in order to engage the public in an educational experience of history and of their fundamental rights, responsibilities, and duties as citizens of our constitutional republic. Education is the core of our mission.
