A Timeless Legacy
“The heroes of a nation reflect the values of its people.”

The stories of true heroes are timeless, and must be passed from generation to generation. They provide a legacy of hope. In The New York Times Op-Ed section on April 23, 1991, Joseph Epstein wrote of this legacy when he observed that "...heroes teach how various are human gifts, how powerful is determination in human achievement, how nothing is accomplished in the world without effort, unremittingly repeated."

The Origin of A Study of Heroes
A diverse network of school communities, both public and private, participated in the pilot program for the development of A STUDY OF HEROES. Schools in North Carolina and the New York metropolitan area, in settings ranging from inner-city and suburban to rural, opened their classroom doors to work collegially with the program developers. As a result, today, by its inherent content and flexible design, HEROES addresses the educational standards, needs, and interests of a diversity of communities across the nation. Teachers, administrators, parents, students, counselors, librarians, media specialists, social workers, school secretaries, custodians, staff, and other community members were among those who a had direct input into the development of this program.

A STUDY OF HEROES has been used by over a million students in all fifty states in the USA in a broad variety of settings and in five foreign countries.

Program Design
A STUDY OF HEROES is a classroom-tested program that readily fits into existing curricula.
