 High School (Grades 9 - 12)

High school history is composed of the following courses:

Geography
US History (Reconstruction to present day)
World History
American Government/Economics

(Not all history courses are offered each year at Home Run,
and there is not a definitive order in which to take these classes.
However, American Government and Economics should be taken later rather than earlier in high school because of the maturity level needed to understand the concepts. )

 



Geography

Students will study various cultural regions and countries; students will have a Biblical understanding of the earth, its people, and its resources.  Full-year course.
