Like all courses, HCA takes a biblical approach when it comes to their education. In the case of History, the written record of mankind, it is “His story” describing the rise and fall of nations and individuals as they respond to God’s truth--the story of what man has done with the time God has given him, from creation through the present. The students learn God has given the earth to man and woman for a home, and the study of the surface and attributes of the earth is Geography. Learning geography helps the students because it describes and gives context to the place where a historical event has taken place. When teaching the concepts of social studies at this age, HCA emphasizes people behind the events of history. Some are pilgrims, some are preachers, some patriots, and some presidents. All make the chronological narrative story of history sequential and connected. These people give students examples of positive role models that made an impact on history.
