Room: FH3
Department: History and Social Studies
Grade Level: High School (9th-12th), Middle School (6th-8th)

Open to high school and middle school students, this class involves tackling some of the big questions in life. Come explore the life of the mind and learn to love God with all of your mind in order to impact our culture for Christ. We explore what philosophy is and why it's important, wisdom, truth, logic, fallacies, reality, beauty, meaning, and much more! Each class session has practical applications, e.g. how to tell if a book / song / movie is "good", using technology for transformation, becoming an agent of change in the arts & entertainment, business, education, family, government, media, and religion (with special guest speakers from each area!). I use a wide range of creative resources to make deep concepts accessible to students. This is not a homework-heavy class, but we will have a few reading assignments, writing assignments, creative projects, and classroom presentations throughout the year. A weekly email with what we did in class / homework assignment / what's coming up will be sent to both students and parents.

This course can be used to satisfy this as an elective requirement:

  • DOE 45.01400 The Humanities / Social Studies

Cost: $50 / month for 9 months (or $400 if paid in full by the first week of class)
