Civics/Government (minimum 6, maximum 12)
US Civics/Government: In this class will dive into how our government was designed to work and what our role as Christian citizens is supposed to look like. We will be using current events along with an established curriculum format from the Institute on the Constitution whose mission is to restore our American Founding Fathers' Biblical, Constitutional, American View of law and government. This class will be taught on the foundation and belief "There is a God, our rights come from Him and the purpose of civil government is to protect our God-given rights" and that fidelity to this American View is crucial to the preservation of Liberty. There is no text to purchase, handouts will be distributed in class. The cost for the course will be $350/year with a $25 supply fee.
