American History

A year long elective class. American history is a required high school course for students matriculating to many Colleges and Universities. This course will cover pre-colonial history through the modern era. The time frame will correlate with that of the World History class. We conclude our year around the Raegan administration to allow sufficient distance for historical analysis.

The Modern period is associated with fundamental changes from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. The period begins with the end of Pre-modern age and while this era continues to present day, we will end with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Literature is integrated into this course and novels will include Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, Around the World in 80 Days, and Night by Elie Wiesel.

What is a Passion Project?

A passion project is not defined by the parent or instructor. It is your opportunity to control your education and learn through something you are passionate about.

A passion project should excite and motivate you. You could decide to establish a business or Nor For Profit organization, write a blog or book, start a community initiative, undertake independent research, or invent something.

How do I get started?

  • Sign up for our passion project mentorship program
  • Meet with mentor(s) on a weekly basis who will help you make connections and set up your proposal.
  • Continue working on the steps of your proposal through fruition.
