Course Description

*Please note that all Emmaus Classical Academy courses must be registered through the Emmaus registration site here as well as through ILA's registration system. A $25 registration fee will be charged by Emmaus as well.

This year-long, twice per week class counts for 35 high school class credits: American Literature (10 credits), American History (10 credits), Bible/Theology (10 credits), and Government (5 credits).

In America, students enter a community that challenges them to develop a holistic understanding of responsible American citizenship by learning about the political philosophies that influenced our nation's founders. While reading and discussing texts that span from thinkers like John Locke and Thomas Jefferson to Nathaniel Hawthorne and Frederick Douglass, they encounter those who model well-rounded loyalty to this country we all call home. Your student will leave the America course prepared to claim a place in their country characterized by courage and justice, and knowing that a true love of country necessitates a love for its people.

America is open to all 10th-12th grade students, though we highly recommend taking it after Inklings and before Apostles. Students who take America without taking Inklings first will need to concurrently enroll in Inkwell, our supplementary writing seminar.

A full course description can be found here. Reading lists will be posted to our website in early May.
