AP U.S. History

1 Credit
Available to Grades 10–12

This elective was created for students who want to dig deeper into U.S. History beyond the dates and facts and understand the relationship between the people, events, and movements that shaped the United States from 1492 through 1877. Emphasis on the broad themes of war and treaties, territorial expansion, immigration, slavery, civil rights, labor history, and constitutional controversies support critical thinking skills and encourage discussion throughout this self-directed course.

AP U.S. History enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning. This course has been built around the practices published in the AP U.S. History Course and Exam Description.

Per counselor approval, students can take AP U.S. History instead of U.S. History.
