Homeschooling at the Highest Level

At Royal Fireworks Press, our aim is to support parents dedicated to developing in their children a lifelong love of learning, a broad understanding of the world of the intellect, and core competencies in academic areas. Our materials are infused with high intellectual demands because we think it is foolish to work to low standards. We know that the individual attention of homeschooling enables children to succeed with demanding materials. Our curricula engender a different experience because they are radically different in approach from other curricula.

We offer FREE SHIPPING on any domestic U.S. order that includes a Michael Clay Thompson Language Arts Curriculum Complete Homeschool Package. Enter MCTHSP in the voucher box in the shopping cart, and your entire order will ship free.

MCT Online Courses: Michael Clay Thompson is offering more online courses in the winter and spring of 2017. Go to this page to find out more and to register your child for this unique opportunity.

For the Best in Your Classroom

At Royal Fireworks Press, we offer materials with the intellectual heft to challenge and intrigue the best students in your classroom, enabling you to educate students at the highest levels. Our texts are demanding, never dumbed down; they are wide-ranging, not narrowly focused; they are not worksheet-based or dull drill and practice but instead Socratic and creative. Our curricula are the difference between real education and teaching to the test. They offer teachers the opportunity to go beyond the ordinary to enrich children’s lives.
