Registration Deadline for Fall 2022: 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.

History - The First 5200 Years - 2 Semesters, Fall 2022
This course is world history taught from the perspective of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Our history courses are organized around “key dates” which provide students with a chronological framework for the major events of world and U.S. history. The World History courses begin with the creation of the earth and the beginning of the human family with our first parents, Adam and Eve at 4000 B.C. and continues down to 1200 A.D. covering the events in the development of Western Civilization. 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.
Free Market (Austrian) Economics - 1 semester Fall 2022
This course includes an introduction to the schools of economic thought: Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, Free Market (Austrian), Keynesianism, and others. It considers how economic theory and principles are derived, what is money, the gold standard, the Federal Reserve, inflation and deflation, theories of value, trade, specialization and the division of labor, competition, supply and demand, the price system, and MORE. A great foundation for understanding the confusing world we see today!
Principles of Good Government - 1 semester Spring 2023
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.
