Course Description: This American Government course prepares students for responsible citizenship with a discussion of the principles and mechanics of our constitutional republic. The curriculum provides insight on a variety of topics such as the Constitution, three branches of our government, political parties, elections, foreign policy, and more, all from a biblical perspective.

During Economics, in the fall, students will further their personal finance study using concepts introduced in Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance. This will continue into the spring semester.
