Peace Hill Press, also known as Well-Trained Mind Press, [1] is an American publishing company based in Charles City County, Virginia. Peace Hill Press publishes books that fit within the framework of the classical model of education. Their most popular series is The Story of the World (Susan Wise Bauer), a four-volume narrative history of the world, written for elementary-aged students.

Susan Wise Bauer is a professor at the College of William and Mary. Besides The Story of the World series she has developed a writing program called Writing With Ease. This program leads a student gently from copy work, dictation, to outlining, writing topic sentences, to writing essays. Dr. Bauer's inspiration for the program stemmed from the many college freshmen who did not know how to write complete sentences, let alone write essays.

Peace Hill Press books are distributed internationally by W.W. Norton. Foreign rights for Peace Hill Press are handled by Inkwell Literary Management.

In 2016, Peace Hill Press changed its name to Well-Trained Mind Press, to better reflect its emphasis on the classical education methods laid out in Susan Wise Bauer's book The Well-Trained Mind. [2] [3]
