Registration Deadline for Fall 2020: August 31
We have been using Saxon Math for our own family and our home school support academy since 1994. We like it because it is designed to continually reinforce all the concepts taught from the beginning of each course, and incrementally builds a strong foundation for academic success in math. We believe that parents are the best math teachers for their children in the elementary grades. Ensign Education classes start at the junior high school level. If you are uncertain where your student should be placed in the curriculum, use this placement test and we will be happy to consult with you on what will work best for your student.

U.S. History - Fall 2021, Spring 2022
This course is US history taught from the perspective of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. The first semester we begin with the exploration era of the 15th century and continue to the Civil War, which has been called “the continental divide” of US History, and failure to understand it is a failure to understand America. From there we examine the continuing establishment of America as the world’s dominant political and economic superpower through a continuous legacy of wars, declared and undeclared down to the present in the second semester. This class requires minimal homework; mainly a review of class notes each week to prepare for a quiz on the previous class’s content. Recommended for high school age students and their parents.
Principles of Good Government - 1 semester Spring 2021
This course starts with The Law by Frederick Bastiat, then proceeds to “The Proper Role of Government” by Ezra T. Benson. It also covers the philosophy of liberty, and will provide students an opportunity to analyze current political issues from the foundation of correct principles. The meaning and application of the U.S. Constitution provides boundaries for evaluation and analysis. It will be very valuable in providing a forum for critical thinking about the important issues of our day and forming defensible opinions.
