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. Students examine why events happened as well what happened as they explore history and practice historical thinking skills.

Psychology and anthropology courses delve into the nature of humanity viewed both externally and internally, using a perspective provided by the long history of achievements in the fields, updated with the latest findings.

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.
