In Year 3, we study US History in order to understand the foundations of our American Republic.
We emphasize the founding principles of the United States.
We begin with the early colonies and finish the year with the Civil War.
Principles of the American Republic are woven throughout the lessons. The establishment of self-government and the character of the early colonists as the foundation for a Republic is emphasized. We look at the role of preachers and pastors in birthing the Declaration of Independence; and study the principles within. Students will become familiar with the Founding Father’s character, sacrifice and conviction and the role of the Bible in the Constitution. The expansion of the nation from sea to shining sea and invention and innovation exemplify how liberty allows men to pursue their interests. Lastly, the conflicts and upheaval leading to the Civil War and legislation that will affect generations of Americans to this present day.
Beginning with the Christian Founding, we study the principles of liberty and answer questions like;
Why is America the most free and prosperous nation that has ever been founded?
What was the source of America’s greatness?
Who was highly influential in the cultivation of liberty?
What rights are outlined in the Declaration of Independence?
What are our God-given rights and duties?
What is the individual’s responsibility with regards to self-government?
What is the role of the Constitution?
What are the key areas of American expansion?
What does liberty give birth to?
How did the Founding Fathers view slavery?
How an individual answers these questions is the framework in which he or she reasons and relates to the world and life events.
Pathway to Liberty is a holistic curriculum covering Bible, history, character, writing, vocabulary and geography.
Join us in learning about the principles of liberty and building a solid foundation from which your students can build on for a lifetime.

Considered one of the finest works of Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire, Leif the Lucky will delight both children and adults with the story of Leif, son of Erik the Red, who sailed with his father and a Viking crew to Greenland and then farther west to the continent of America.
In this charming and lavishly illustrated edition, Leif is a sturdy, adventurous Viking boy who crosses uncharted seas to arrive at “a beautiful land with forests of strange trees growing all the way down to the shores.” Leif wrestles with polar bear cubs, watches the fierce Norse gods race in the glow of the Northern Lights, and becomes a strong and courageous hunter.
Written in the spirit of the ancient sagas and rich in color and detail, Leif the Lucky is a fascinating biography of the young Viking explorer.

As is their custom, the d’Aulaires have thoroughly researched their subject in order to provide the most historically accurate account of the life of the man Samuel Eliot Morrison called “the greatest mariner that ever lived.” In their pursuit, the d’Aulaires traveled to Spain, Portugal, and the Caribbean Islands to research original documents on the life of Columbus. Their text reflects many little- known facts not generally included in the typical biographies of Columbus. Readers will learn that it was the saga of Leif Erickson that was one of the inspirations for Columbus’s voyage to the East. They will also learn that Columbus was such a skilled astronomer that he knew the exact date when the next eclipse of the moon was and used that knowledge to his advantage. They will also learn that though “Columbus was a great man, he was not a modest man. He wanted too much, and so he did not get enough” (54). This book is lavishly illustrated with the d’Aulaire’s detailed lithographs in four colors. 54pg
