History: History comes to life when studied with a Biblical perspective -- beginning with the Creation and exploring historical accounts through the ages. Stories from the Bible provide the foundation of our history program. We build on this foundation by adding stories from world history and stories from classic literature which also includes art, poetry, and music.

Elementary History (ages 8-12) Several resources may be used to help students learn history. In the last few years, Libraries of Hope have added many history stories that will be enjoyed by children in this age group. We also encourage student to create "notebooks" that illustrate and describe how they belong to a family, a community, a country, and a world.

Senior History (ages 12 and older) incorporates the "Hook-Dates" from the Kimber Academy History curriculum. The "hook-date" method of teaching history is remarkable in helping students remember the events, characters, and stories of history through the ages. Our history resources will include a list of stories that correspond to each hook date. Senior students will create "notebooks" that illustrate and describe events in history from the Creation to the present day. Notebooks will be organized by hook dates.
