Eleventh Grade

U.S. History

The eleventh graders will be presented with the history of America from the 1490s to the 1990s with special emphasis on the personalities and events that shaped the American character. A variety of illustrations, maps, and photographs will invite students to explore the past of U.S. history. Through the story of America's rise to greatness, students will learn to recognize the hand of God in history and to appreciate the influence of Christianity in government, economics, and society.

 

Twelfth Grade

Government and Economics

This course is designed to have a conservative, Christian perspective. Students need the firm foundation this course provides to become informed, responsible citizens and voters in today's world. This course will promote patriotism by opening with an inspiring look at the blessings we enjoy and the symbols we hold dear as American citizens. This course centers on the Constitution because at the core of the text is a fascinating study of the Constitution, the government it established, and the rights and privileges it guarantees the American people. This course will also challenge students to get involved because after studying the Constitution and the national government, students learn about federalism and government at the state and local levels. The text concludes with a chapter on the opportunities and responsibilities of American citizens to get involved in their unique political system.

The semester on Economics covers essential concepts such as competition in the marketplace and private ownership of capital, which are discussed from a conservative perspective. The Biblical views of work, wealth, and stewardship appear throughout the book.
