They also prepare students for the world of global interactions awaiting them in work, travel, and potential further studies after high school.

The kindergarten program takes your student on a world tour of the seven continents, and provides an overview of American History through a series of biographies of famous Americans. The program in grades 1-4 tells the story of civilization from the Stone Age to the Space Age. Older students explore major themes and topics in greater depth through a pair of two-year survey courses, one on World History and the other on American History.

Courses in economics review the fundamental terminology, topics, and issues crucial for understanding today's complex and shifting financial landscape, and offer a firm foundation for grasping breaking news and shaping students' future professional decisions. Courses satisfy national standards and follows state guidelines where defined. Multiple versions of certain courses allow for appropriate placement, and all Advanced Placement courses satisfy the College Board's requirements.
