AHS students develop a love, understanding, and appreciation for America and the founding fathers (and mothers) whose efforts and sacrifices laid the foundation the success of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Moreover, students study various countries and learn to:

  • read and sketch maps: political, physical, natural resources, linguistic, cultural, population maps.
  • discuss peoples, cultures, geography, and resources.
  • compare and contrast governmental forms and functions in various lands, including how their laws are made, carried out, and upheld.
  • understand history of wars, alliances, treaties, and diplomacy.
  • Understand history through a providential lens, seeing God’s hand in history.

The following events that are depicted on timelines in American Heritage classrooms to help students learn history across subjects in an interconnected way.
