The purpose of the US History course is to foster spiritual growth by leading students to ask questions about the character and nature of God and allowing them to see the consequences of one’s thoughts and actions as they play out in the drama of American history. Students will complete a chronological survey of events from the colonization of The United States of America to the tumultuous climate of the 1950s and 1960s and the connections to our current state. In this process, students will gain wisdom of God’s providential hand displayed throughout all aspects of the development of the United States and the Biblical principles that are the foundation of our Republic.
