Key of Liberty

Time: 8:30 - 10:30 

Mentors: Nikki Sair, D.D. Black, Shayna Gorton 

Class Fee: $55 Spring Semester

Age: 12+

Class Description: 
Key of Liberty is a 2-semester practice scholar project that explores the Revolutionary time period of America, including gaining knowledge and understanding of the underlying reasons for the revolution, learning details of the revolution (1st semester) and the building up of our nation – Manifest Destiny (2nd semester), and how the revolutionary era affects and impacts us today. Scholars will gain a vision of God, self, and country – and how they, as individuals, fit into this vision. They will learn about the knowledge the founders had of natural rights, divine providence, and principles of truth, and how they applied that understanding in their lives and on behalf of our country. The scholar will have opportunities to gain and apply skills such as time-management, study of original documents, discussing timeless ideas of freedom & liberty (among other ideas), closely examining colonial life and sharing that information through presentations, expressing personal opinions and ideas through writing and other forms of communication, studying and memorize the Declaration of Independence and other inspired words/quotes (1st semester), and immerse themselves in simulated events similar to the events of that time period.

Come join us for this interactive and exciting class as we delve into understanding, upholding, and promoting ideas of freedom and liberty through history and in our lives and in the lives of our families and communities. We can - just like the founders - live by, in, and through truth as we gain knowledge and apply it. So, "A man (or woman) can stand up" - Johnny Tremain
