Course Description

Economics (9th - 12th grade) - fall semester 

This course introduces and explores key principles of economics from household purchases to the stock market. Students will learn about issues related to national economic systems and policies. Students will be encouraged to take notes in class and ask questions both during class time and during the week via phone, email, or by designated personal sessions. There will be homework each week that will be graded by both completion and accuracy. Students will also be graded on tests, quizzes, and potential projects. Even though the text also includes sections of personal finance, these will be covered in our Person Finance course. Course prerequisites: Algebra I (or Pre-Algebra) and U.S. History (or Government).

Government (9th - 12th grade) - spring semester 

This Notgrass Exploring Government curriculum is a one-semester (half-credit) high school course that covers the government of the United States from its beginning to the present with a special emphasis on the Biblical pattern for government and the U.S. Constitution. Students will learn about federal, state, and local government and become better equipped to understand our country's government as they learn about contemporary issues facing our nation today. This class will facilitate respectful conversation and logical debate. Students will need to be comfortable presenting on issues that may contradict their personal beliefs. All material will be handled from a Biblical Worldview. Assignments will be turned in on Google Classroom throughout the week, not necessarily only on class day. Students will participate in the Living Wax Museum in the Spring as part of their overall grade. Related field trips are being considered. 

*Here at MHA, we want all our students to have a pleasant and enjoyable learning experience so please feel free to come to us with any questions and/or concerns.*
