THE ANCIENT WORLD

Course Description: Students taking this course will benefit from the integration of History, Literature, and Theology in true liberal arts fashion. The facts and events of ancient history are illuminated by literature and primary sources of the time period, along with thought-provoking essays written by a wide range of contemporary scholars and educators. Class discussions encourage students to understand these events and their repercussions in light of ultimate things, always with the goal of becoming more like our Savior, Jesus Christ.

They will then continue forward with the monthly payment plan for the balance of tuition.
