Why This Class
Your student has the potential to contribute something significant to America’s story. To help them do so, you want to ensure that they know and appreciate the events and people who have shaped that story up to now. This course helps by immersing your student in modern U.S. history.
Guided by a mentor, students in this course explore the pivotal events of both World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam conflicts, and the Cold War. Students also examine the driving factors behind the Great Depression, the New Deal, and the Civil Rights Era. In the process, they learn not only history but compassion for the generations who fought for America’s freedom and for the presidents and others who have worked to promote its core values.
By completing this course, students gain in-depth awareness of the forces that created America as they know it. They realize great leadership is as relevant today as it was in the past—and embrace their responsibility for America’s future.
