Institute on the Constitution is a 12-week training course on how to understand and utilize the Constitution of the United States to protect and promote our fundamental liberties under law. Students will be challenged to look at current events through the lens of the organic law of the land, not through the gimlet eye of the news media or even of many of our elected officials. Students will learn the history behind our founding documents, and the legitimate involvement citizens must engage in our constitutional representative Republic.

Your paid course registration includes 12 weekly 90-minute training classes, a student handbook, and supplemental materials valued at over $75. The course will be taught by Chuck Michaelis, executive director of  Camp American, and Barry Sheets, executive director of the Institute for Principled Policy. We are also being sponsored by Oath Keepers.

The cost for this course is $60 per student if registration is made online before March 5th. After this, or at the door, registration will be $75 per student. Students who complete the coursework will be eligible to be part of a graduation ceremony to be held on the last week of classes.
