HISTORY CLASSES

Our full-year tuition includes 5 full-year courses. Feedback from parents, students, and teachers indicates that this workload achieves a balance of academic rigor while leaving time for outside activities. It is possible to add additional courses for an additional charge, but we strongly encourage students to take no more than five courses.
