The American Government semester course is designed to give your high school student a solid foundation of knowledge about our government. Utilizing the text and primary source documents, your child will learn the history of our government. Throughout the semester we will explore the creation, implementation, and development of the “noble experiment” of government set in place by our Founding Fathers.
From America’s foundations to modern issues, this course is intended to equip students to understand the government of the United States and to be prepared to exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
This class will utilize a variety of experiences to enhance the learning experience including, but not limited to, class discussion, current events, research, critical thinking, tests, projects, and historical document analysis.
Currently under consideration – texts will be announced by July 1
American Government is available on Both Campuses during the fall 2021 semester only.
If a student withdraws after September 30th, there will be a $130 withdrawal fee.
