The Liberty’s Legacy Vision

Passing the Torch to the Next Generation

Liberty’s Legacy combines innovative teaching tools and awe-inspiring products to create classroom experiences that last a lifetime.

What We Do

Liberty’s Legacy makes learning history, civics, character, financial literacy and career readiness exciting. Our immersive learning experiences teach students to become responsible, outstanding citizens.

At Liberty’s Legacy, we are committed to “Passing the Torch to the Next Generation.”

Our Message

Imagine a generation of students who excel in teach-to-test subjects but have little knowledge of civics, character, financial responsibility and career readiness. Will math and science alone continue our nation’s progress? Our students deserve to learn these guiding lessons – as well as the great American Story that gives context to their important roles in our country’s future. We must teach them that they hold titles more important than “engineer,” “scientist” even … “president” … that title is citizen.

Liberty’s Legacy programs are built on our “Pillars and Foundations of Outstanding Citizens.” Our curriculum teaches the “pillars” of Character Development, Financial Responsibility and Career Readiness – all on a “foundation” of our great American Story that gives students a context for understanding their important roles in America’s future.

The pillar concepts are taught in conjunction with required subjects across the curriculum. Depth of study increases throughout the Pre-K-5 life cycle; preparing young adults with the life skills, passion and character they need to succeed.

If you believe that character, history and civic responsibility can, and must, be taught despite budget cuts, please join us in this historic mission.

“The Super Citizen Program is just what we need as a Community, a Company, and a Country.” – Ralph Bellamy, Alabama Power

Our Mission

  • To educate students about the history, importance and true meaning of the freedoms symbolized by The Statue of Liberty.
  • To honor the true heroes among us: our military, veterans and their families – along with all other servicepersons, teachers/administrators and the many proud Americans who understand the cost of freedom and what it means to be a good and responsible citizen.
  • To offer unique educational products that are made in America and symbolize the very heart of our purpose: to spread the true meaning and understanding of the freedom symbolized by The Statue of Liberty.
  • To provide resources for our schools and other charitable organizations that work to educate and promote character building and citizenship in our youth
  • To raise money for our schools and other charitable organizations that work to educate and promote character building and citizenship in our youth
  • To provide resources for our schools and other charitable organizations that work to educate and promote character building and citizenship in our youth.

“The younger we can start teaching them the history and the legacy and the joy of liberty and freedom the better. We have to teach our kids at a younger and younger age to make them become a good citizen. This is the age we can mold them and shape them into being a good citizen.” – Rena Anderson, Director of Community Relations, Huntsville City Schools

“It makes our job easier if people are acting the right way. Because unfortunately as an FBI agent you end up seeing people not at their best typically. When there’s awareness at a very young age of what it takes to be a good citizen, you follow the rule of law, that you treat people with dignity, that you’re a good financial steward … you’re not going to let somebody else take on your debt. Teaching those things early will have benefits long term for American society.” – Rick Schwein, Jr., Special Agent in Charge, FBI Birmingham Division
