CLASS DETAILS AND PHILOSOPHY- “………….equipping the students with the tools for a lifetime of learning: a knowledge of the timetables of history, a background understanding of great literary classics, a familiarity with the sweep of art, music and ideas, a worldview comprehension of basic geography, a principle approach to discerning the significance of current events, and an emphasis on a Christian life paradigm. The idea is to study human ideas in context-both in terms of its historical and societal sequence and in terms of its providential and cultural importance…..” -Dr. George Grant; King’s Meadow Ministries LITERATURE: is based on the subject matter studied.
