Adam Andrews received his BA in Political Economy and Christian Studies from Hillsdale College in 1991. He earned his MA in History from the University of Washington in 1994, and is currently a candidate for the PhD in History. He is writing his doctoral dissertation on the history of early American Presbyterianism. Adam is a Henry Salvatori Fellow of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute and a founding board member of Westover Academy, a Classical Christian school in Colville, Washington. He is the assistant director of the American Council for Accredited Certification, a nonprofit professional certifying body.
He and his wife Missy homeschool their six children, ages nine to eighteen. The family attends Christ Reformed Church in Colville, where Adam is the preaching elder.
They have long felt a calling to serve the homeschooling community and have constantly been on the lookout for ways to make high quality education accessible to committed parents and teachers. Inveterate bookworms, they have spent the past twelve years making booklists of great literature for students of all ages and trying to find a literature curriculum that is both accessible and substantial. Teaching the Classics is the result of their conviction that the best curriculum is one that involves both teacher and student in a discussion of great ideas.
Adam and his wife founded The Center for Lit on 2003 to help parents and teachers provide high quality instruction in the important disciplines of the mind.
