Wayfarers History includes elements of both classical and Charlotte Mason education methods. It is intended for use by the whole family, with a variety of living books for each stage of education. Some hands-on projects are included, and fine arts are integrated throughout the program. A large amount of high-quality literature is read, which will need to be purchased or borrowed from the library. Math-U-See is scheduled as the math curriculum, but can be substituted with a different curriculum.
