Great news! The new Crowned With Virtue Club Curriculum is available as of June 2017! If you are interested in starting a club, please read the information below.
Crowned With Virtue clubs are designed for girls ages 8-12 to form bonds of friendship as they study great heroes. Each club is run by mentors who lead the maidens in the following endeavors:
- Reading and discussing books about great heroes
- Learning public speaking through presentations to the clubs
- Planning and leading activities
- Learning the basics of commonplace books
- Being inspired by hero visits and field trips
Our club curriculum is designed around a central theme for each year. The handmaidens then learn how the Eight Standards of Christathel relate to the year’s theme through the study of great heroes, past and present.
The format and content for the Crowned With Virtue Clubs will work well in settings such as mom-schools, commonwealths, co-ops, community groups and even individual families.
What is included in the curriculum?
When you purchase the Crowned With Virtue Curriculum for the year you will receive:
- An up-to-date handbook that will teach you all the hows/whens/whys of running a club. This includes ideas for budgeting, organization, mentoring tips, sample schedules for either bi-weekly or weekly meetings, and much more.
- Printable full-color posters of The Eight Standards of Christathel, The Hero’s Creed, and a Virtue Certificate.
- The sheet music and audio accompaniment file for the Crowned With Virtue Theme Song, One Little Light.

Many people want to know how much they should expect to have each handmaiden pay per semester. This has been addressed in the handbook, but there are a few items you may want to know about prior to purchasing this curriculum.
- A binder for each handmaiden is encouraged.
- Handmaidens have the opportunity to earn a prize by reading books for each unit and participating in club activities. Club mentors determine what the prize will be each year. The cost of this prize should come out of your own club’s registration fee per handmaiden.
- You will want to include the cost of field trips, crafts, activities, and snacks in your own club’s registration fee per handmaiden.
