In Year 1, we start with Universal History in order to lay the foundation for a Biblical worldview. Universal History takes the students through the Bible chronologically; highlighting the character of key individuals and placing them within the context of their culture. Spanning over events happening around the world, the students are equipped to assimilate Biblical history with world events.

Universal History is common to all men, of all times, all over the globe. No matter our age, race, origin or religion, it is mankind’s common history. We teach the Bible chronologically as real history. Students are introduced to real people, in real time, with real events set into the context of world history.

We begin with Creation and finish the year with the Ancient Greeks.

We teach worldview by answering questions like;
What is God’s relationship with the universe?
What is God’s role in history?
What is God’s role in my life?
What are humans?
Why am I here? What is the purpose my life?
Am I significant? Do I have a contribution to offer others?
What are my values and priorities?

How an individual answers these questions is the framework in which he or she reasons and relates to the world and life events.

Join us in laying a solid foundation on which your student can build for a lifetime.

Ranofer wants only one thing in the world: to be a master goldsmith like his beloved father was. But how can he when he is all but imprisoned by his evil half brother, Gebu? Ranofer knows the only way he can escape Gebu's abuse is by changing his destiny. But can a poor boy with no skills survive on the cutthroat streets of ancient Thebes? Then Ranofer finds a priceless golden goblet in Gebu's room and he knows his luck−and his destiny−are about to change.
