Memoria Press exists to promote and impart the classical heritage of the Christian West. We do this through an emphasis on the liberal arts and the great works of the Western tradition. In order to achieve this goal, we have produced a comprehensive and accessible classical Christian curriculum that encourages the development of wisdom and virtue through a pursuit of the Good, the True, and the Beautiful.

Cheryl Lowe, founder of Memoria Press

Memoria Press was founded by Cheryl Lowe. Cheryl was the author of the popular Latin programs Latina Christiana, Lingua Angelica, and the Latin Forms Series, as well as The Greek Alphabet, Classical Phonics, First Start Reading, English Grammar Recitation, and other programs. She and her husband, Jim, were married for forty years and have two sons. Cheryl discovered Latin when she homeschooled her sons and was the self-styled apostle of Latin, claiming that Latin has more educational value than any other subject you can teach your children. Cheryl graduated from the University of Louisville with a degree in chemistry and from Western Kentucky University with an M.S. in biology. Cheryl had wide teaching experience, in both content and venue, teaching everything from phonics, reading, math, Bible, and chemistry to Shakespeare and Latin, and teaching in public and private schools, as well as homeschooling. Cheryl and her son Brian founded Memoria Press in 1994, and in 2000, the highly successful Highlands Latin School, where the Memoria Press products are taught and field-tested. Cheryl spent many years overseeing the development of the Memoria Press Classical Core Curriculum for home, Christian, and cottage schools, and her memory and example continue to daily inform the mission and vision of Memoria Press.

Memoria Press is part of a collection of institutions that promote classical education and the cultural heritage of the Christian West. We regard each of these enterprises as members of our classical education family.


About Classical Education

Learn More!

Classical education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue through the study of the liberal arts and the Great Books. The liberal arts are the universal linguistic and mathematical skills pupils need to excel in every area of life. The Great Books are the means by which we pass on the cultural heritage of the Christian West. A mastery of both is the best way to prepare a child for a life of wisdom and virtue, and Memoria Press’ beautiful and comprehensive classical Christian curriculum provides the tools for mastering these two essential elements of education.
