Let love be genuine.  Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.—Romans 12:9

Central Valley Christian School

In the past, He let all nations go their own way.

Yet He has not left Himself without testimony…--Acts 14:16-17





































The study of history affords a unique opportunity to consider the currents of human interaction beyond our immediate experience—however, as this course will demonstrate, the forces of national interest, self-interest, and disinterest are unifying the world today as in no previous era.  The Christian response must be neither a sentimental glorification of a provincial past, nor a cynical retreat from the de facto global society to which we now belong; instead, the Christian must give glory to God for His ordering of the world and its peoples.  An examination of the disputes, revolutions, crimes, triumphs, failures, lies, and heroes of the past can serve to illustrate His providence and our dependence as His people.




Students will understand the motives and experiences of people in history. 

Students will practice thinking critically and responding appropriately.

Students will follow pertinent current events, and analyze points of debate using evidence.
