The Angelicum Academy (TA) is a Catholic home school and liberal education program based on the liberal arts and the classical great books of Western civilization (with optional online Socratic discussion seminars).  It is no coincidence that TA appears very similar to the Great Books Academy (GBA).  This is because TA is a spin-off of the GBA.  The Angelicum Academy was formed when Catholic directors of the GBA came to realize that an educational program like the GBA could be more relevant for Catholic students if it were based upon the shared starting points of a common creed as defined and clarified by the Catholic magisterial authority.  The foundation of TA is based on collections of literature from the Great Books List and the Good Books List.  These lists are compilations of the greatest works of literature from Western civilisation.  The TA high school program uses the Great Books List as a source.  The elementary program uses the Good Books List.

Seton Home Study School was founded in 1980.  Seton is probably the most well known home study school among Catholic home schoolers.  They offer a program that is recognized for its Catholicity and academic excellence. Seton’s curriculum is classically Catholic.  They believe that the home schoolers of today are the leaders of tomorrow, and their curriculum reflects the belief that Catholics today need to be fully informed in the Faith, while not neglecting great secular works of Western civilization.  While always striving to use Catholic materials in their curriculum, when such materials are not available they have either published their own materials or have given the Catholic perspective in the lesson plans.
