At National History Academy, we believe that history is the most important resource to understand where we are as a country today. Knowing where we’ve been gives us the tools to prepare for a better future. The Academy will give you an opportunity to explore the sources of many of America’s current challenges through meaningful discussions with fellow students from around the country. Join us to study defining moments in our history while relating those moments to the important issues we face as a nation today.
10th -12th Grade Students
Students will walk in the footsteps of leaders who helped define and shape the American story and focus on critical events in our history – the creation of the Constitution, political division leading to Civil War, Martin Luther King’s fight for civil rights and voting rights, and women’s struggle for equal rights in America – while relating our country’s history to the serious challenges we face as a country today.
