Heart of Dakota was written by Carrie Austen, a homeschool mom armed with a masters degree and a passion to see children reading good books and learning Godly character. 

There are 13 levels of the program – running from pre-K through to grade 12. Each level includes a teacher’s guide which explains exactly what to cover each day. The program uses history as its main foundation, infused with the Charlotte Mason style of quality books and student notebooks.

Each level of the program offers options for purchase. You start with the economy package and then choose whichever add-ons you want to complete your curriculum. 

The Economy Package contains History, Geography, Bible, Art, Spelling, and Poetry.  Add-ons include Math, Science, Reading, and Handwriting.  The program uses Singapore Math and Rod & Staff for grammar in the elementary school years. However, you can skip these if you would like to use something else. 

You can also purchase resources for Devotions, Hymns, Nature Study, and various other subjects through the years depending on the level and your preferences. 

Each level can be used with multiple students with a gap of 3-4 years apart.  You can also use their placement charts to determine which kit would fit your family the best.
