About The Well-Trained Mind and Peace Hill Press
We are a small, family-run company, working together to produce the best materials for classical education the world has ever seen.
Most educational presses are run by large, international companies, which make large profits by pushing poorly-designed, grossly-overpriced books to large, institutional buyers. Not us. We're a small company; we want to stay that way. When you call our office, you don't get a phone tree; you get to talk to us directly. Our books aren't written by committee; they're produced by a small group of dedicated, skilled writers who have training, experience, and (in most cases) multiple graduate degrees.
We enjoy working in a small office on a farm. It presents us with myriad challenges and adventures. Like the time when the farm's 200-gallon diesel tank fell over and we had to leave our typesetting and editing duties to right it. Or the time when Noodles, one of the beagles, ate several packages waiting for UPS. (We're probably the only educational press in the world where our dogs eat your homework!) Our job descriptions change with the seasons.
A little more about us:
We Know Education
Our materials provide parents with a rare combination of academic rigor (because of all the graduate degrees) and ease of use (because we know just how busy your schedules are). We are proud to say that our materials are the best books available for teaching history and language arts that we have seen. We're also proud that as we come out with more and more products, they keep getting better and better.
We Know Homeschooling
Many parents rely on The Well-Trained Mind as their homeschooling authority. The book's authors, Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise, direct Peace Hill Press. They travel the country, speaking to homeschooling parents about the methodology, philosophy, and the daily nuts and bolts of homeschooling in the 21st century.
We Know You
We maintain the Well-Trained Mind Message Boards, a resource where, every month, roughly 40,000 moms and dads share questions, answers, struggles, successes, ideas, and opinions about classical education, schools, homeschooling, and life. We understand that you have a finite amount of time, energy, and money, and that you want to give your family the best education you possibly can. We use that knowledge to create products that meet your needs.
