Instruction in History
History is studied "at its deepest level as salvation history" (Pope John Paul II). The student is led through the course of human history from the ancient pre-classical civilizations, onward to the classical world, to early Christianity and through the flowering of Christian civilization to the modern world. American and Pennsylvania history are studied along with history of Western civilization and the development of world cultures. The centrality of Christ as Lord of history is the foundation for the history curriculum.
