What Educators are Saying

“When students learn to appreciate how God is involved in history, in our struggles and failures and how He has raised up saints in messy situations, we can then invite students to see how God is working in their own history. I believe this is the missing key in modern education."

-Janice Martinez, Principal, Holy Child Catholic School

“Other middle and high-school history textbooks lack the qualities that Catholic Textbook Project’s offer… beautifully and clearly presented. Without proselytizing, and without pressing any worldview other than the importance of understanding the past... Teachers and students who use the Catholic Textbook Project series will be happy to know that in college its readers will know more about history than many of their professors as well as most of their classmates.”

-Jeffrey Burton Russell, Professor Emeritus of History, UC, Santa Barbara



“This carefully researched, beautifully written, and elegantly designed four-volume textbook series at long last gives full weight to the contribution of Roman Catholics across five centuries of North American exploration and settlement. The saga of France and Spain in this regard is already well known. These wonderful volumes, however, now bring to light the English-speaking Roman Catholic presence in North America and the contributions of Catholics of many backgrounds to the creation and development of the United States.”


-Kevin Starr, Professor of History, University of Southern California (USC)

“After examining them, the teachers and I concluded unanimously to adopt the textbooks and their instructional support materials at our school...”

-Fedrina S. Gullano, Principal, Mary Immaculate School, Pacoima, CA

“As a Catholic school we are eager to integrate the Faith more purposefully into our history classroom, but we were worried that our teacher would find the text inadequate to prepare students for AP testing. We are very pleased to report that our Honors U.S. History (AP preparatory) instructor was excited about the content of Lands of Hope and Promise. Impressed with the depth and scholarship, our teacher (who has a Ph.D. in U.S. History from NYU) will be using the book as the primary resource to help prepare students for the AP exam this spring.”

-Michael Adkins, Dean of Academics, St. Agnes School, St. Paul, MN

“We are very pleased with the high standard of content and the integration of the Catholic Faith component into the textbooks…It was a great idea to incorporate what our Church was doing, saying and partaking of during the different periods in history.”

-Edgar Sedano, Principal, Our Lady Help of Christians School, Los Angeles, CA

“We just received our beautiful new Social Studies textbooks and are opening the boxes now. Our office manager, Carmen, and our 8th grade teacher Mrs. Sanchez actually began to cry tears of joy.”

-Joe Sera Jr., Principal, St. Alphonsus Catholic School, Los Angeles, CA

“Our students are thrilled with the new Social Studies books…”

-Sister Marita Olango, FDZ, Principal, St. Elisabeth School, CA

“I wish you could have seen the reactions by the teachers to your textbook samples. There was such joy in their faces when they saw the way the books were formatted and the accompanying materials (CD, teacher workbook). I knew I would be a villain if I exposed them to your books and was unable to secure them for their students. Thank you so much for having a product worth fighting to share with our students and staff…”

-Monica M. Lomenzo, Principal, St. Elisabeth School, CA

“We are speechless here at Saint Sebastian School! We loved the materials... The books are fabulous and we are more than excited to get them into our students’ hands.”

-Dr. Kristine Vardanyan, Principal, St. Sebastian School, Los Angeles, CA
