Our much-anticipated new textbook!

Catholic Textbook Project is happy to announce our newest release, long awaited and desired by the educators who rely on our books! Our Grade 7-8 American history textbook, The American Venture: The Rise and Development of the United States of America, will be available for purchase in spring 2022.


Covering the history of the United States from the first settlements to the mid-20th century, The American Venture weaves the story of the Catholic Church in America together with standard historical themes. It includes discussions of the U.S. and state constitutions, a civics treatment of the U.S. Constitution, and historical treatments of European, non-European, and Native American cultures in the United States.
