Our curriculum is written with a decidedly Christian bias. It seeks to dig as far back into history as we could possibly go to trace God’s hand in the establishment of our country. Our curriculum is not static. It will change as new information comes to light. This should be borne in mind as we learn together.
There are many books and original source documents that we need to use as research materials in an effort to come to the knowledge of the truth, no matter how difficult that might seem at times. We must be lifelong students – always reading, always learning.
