Students will gain an appreciation of the rich cultural, political, and most importantly spiritual heritage surrounding the founding and growth of the United States.  We begin our study in topics spanning 1492 and the exploration of the New World through the Civil War, Reconstruction era and Manifest Destiny/How the West was Won.

Students will "tour" the world in a condensed study of the world's geography examining both physical and cultural characteristics to better appreciate their own context as well as the many varied contexts that are unfamiliar to them.

Students will gain a basic understanding of the purpose of government through a study of biblical principles, the history of government, and current news items to better fulfill their responsibilities as American citizens.
