The Theseus Learning System is a fun and challenging course in critical thinking with a software component for visualizing thought.

"Best Homeschool Software of the Year!"

The Theseus Learning System has been awarded "Best Homeschool Software of the Year" by HomeSchoolStuff.net!

"The feature that made me say, 'Wow, this is really useful!' was the way it helps students in junior and senior high work through development and organization of compositions."

"[Theseus is] based on classical methods. But even those not using classical education should find TLS one of the most valuable tools they use in homeschooling."

Cathy Duffy, Author of 100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum

"[Theseus] takes organized thinking to a new level, which is required for both good writing and critical reading. In fact, the author suggests that using this program will prepare a student for the SAT Writing and Critical Reading tests. I agree. One of the major breakdowns students have in taking writing tests is their lack of ability to organize their thoughts."

Here's what students who have used Theseus have to say:


"Theseus makes the thinking process more visual and easier to complete than just writing or diagramming on paper."

"The Spotlight, in my opinion, is one of the best features because it really kept me from trailing off in the wrong direction."

"For improving critical thinking skills and organizing thoughts, Theseus would be an excellent choice. Not only is the software easy to use, but the lesson book is a pleasure to read, too - very friendly and conversational. Theseus would be great for preparing persuasive speeches or essays, or just anytime you need help organizing material. I can especially see this resource being useful for aspiring debaters, as the program actually allows you to diagram your major/minor points and to learn how to best develop your arguments. So if you're looking for an innovative approach to critical thinking, give Theseus a try."

Drew, high school junior

"This program helps organize your thoughts and gets you started on your topic when you don't know where to start."

"This course is something that I can apply for many years down the road."

Katie, high school senior

"I think that Theseus is a really great product. I've used it for papers and also thinking processes about debates that are going on today. Theseus helps people to know how to think, which is something that is valuable that isn't taught in anything else that I have come into contact with. Thinking is something that we all do, Theseus just teaches you to not get lost in what you are doing and to understand what's going on in your head so that you can get it into words. Theseus has certainly helped me to become a better thinker."

Beth, high school freshman

"The Theseus Learning System really helped me personally to think about the way I argue. I think the biggest strength of the system is that it gives you a visual way to see the way you can use persuasive arguments that will be useful in real life. At first I thought the program would be something to use only for essays and papers, but soon i learned this was a program that teaches you to evaluate your own thought processes and that teaches you to improve your life skills."

Hannah, high school senior
