We love these classes! The teacher is passionate and knowledgeable. My daughter loved it and thought it was a very fun class. She has come out of the class knowing so much valuable information. It’s the best class on American founding fathers, principles, and history I’ve seen!

Join us in dancing our way through the decades from 1910 to the present era as we explore U.S. history and humanities in a fun and engaging manner!
Dabbling in classic literature, primary source documents, the U.S. Constitution, music, art and foods of the eras, students will engage in hands-on, fun and inspiring educational activities.
The object of Heroes of Liberty is to empower students to become heroes of liberty in both their private and public lives. In a "Trivial Pursuit" kind of way, students will have fun completing activities each Era Unit in the areas of:
Sports + Entertainment
Art + Fashion + Food
Educational modalities used during class will include: book discussions, document studies, guest speakers, cooking, student presentations, Minecraft, service projects, art and science projects, physical fitness challenges and more!
Students will complete a final project which will culminate in a Nobel Prize in their chosen area of discipline.
Students may also go “over and beyond” by completing additional tasks which could earn them a Grammy Award! (This portion of the class will be based on the lyrics from Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire".)
