Freshwater Academy

Fresh Water Academy was founded in 2010. It is home to four lovely young ladies of learning and their dedicated teachers. Located in the wilds of Wyoming, the name Fresh Water Academy was chosen as a Western analogy to Christ. Just as He is the Living Water, and we must have Him to have eternal life, any desert dweller knows the importance of fresh water to life, both for self, and the nourishment of crops or livestock. By taking nourishment in God and His word, we strengthen our own relationship with Him, our faith, and the quality and abundance of our fruitfulness.

Our keystone verse is from Jeremiah, Chapter 17, Verse 8: "For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."

The fruit that we speak of is mentioned in Galatians 5:22
"22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

And the heat could be anything we experience that might test our faith in God; trials and tribulations, relationships, anything that focuses our love and attention anywhere but on Him...

To Whom It May Concern:

I am selling a brand new Book 1 in the Learning Adventures Series by Dorian Holt. It is titled "A World of Adventure - A Unit Study Based on World History for grades 4-8". It does not come with a binder; however, it is 3-hole punched. It is designed for a one year study (180 days). I am selling it for $70 ppd. I accept Paypal and will ship USPS Media Mail with tracking information. If interested, please email me at dccheeser@comcast. net.

Thanks,

Learning Adventures is a small, home-based family business, and they have requested that their materials not be resold. 

It is posted directly on their website before you even purchase the products. 

For this reason, I find "J's" post extremely offensive and believe that Used Homeschooling Curriculum should not allow the reselling of this item on this site.

Can I buy the Learning Adventures volumes used?

Probably - but we really wish you wouldn't! Here's why - when you purchase your materials directly from us, you are investing in our work - AND you are investing in your child's future education. You are helping to ensure that future materials will be written for your family to use. Learning Adventures is a small, home-based family business. We are dedicated to providing the best quality curriculum at an affordable price for you! We could charge twice what we do for our products, but we are committed to keeping them affordable, so we ask for your commitment in return. Our ability to do any of these things really does depend upon your support by purchasing materials directly from us. When people increasingly purchase used materials from each other, we are forced to work elsewhere to make a living, which means that we are unable to write future materials because there is no time to do so! You can help the Learning Adventures series to continue by supporting our work in the direct purchase of your materials from Learning Adventures.
