AP U.S. History

AP U.S. History is an introductory college-level U.S. history course. Students cultivate their understanding of U.S. history from c. 1491 CE to the present through analyzing historical sources and learning to make connections and craft historical arguments as they explore concepts like American and national identity; work, exchange, and technology; geography and the environment; migration and settlement; politics and power; America in the world; American and regional culture; and social structures.
This AP Preparation class will expose students to a faster pace to that of the year-long AP course offered during the tradition school year while equipping students with test taking skills to be successful with the APUSH exam.

AP U.S. Government & Politics:

Concepts like freedom, representation, and federalism have defined American government. But how did these values emerge as the guiding forces in our national life? How has political life and government evolved since the founding?
SpringLight Education Institute’s AP United States Government and Politics will not only prepare students to score well on the AP exam, but will also teach students to analyze and interpret the Constitution, important political documents, and data to better understand American government and political culture. Students will learn the guiding structures and principles of American national government but will also develop the skills to analyze the factors that have shaped American politics over the last two centuries.

AP Human Geography

The Advanced Placement Human Geography (APHG) course prepares students to take the APHG exam and introduces them to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and alteration of Earth's surface. The course focuses on the connection, processes, and effects of human populations on the planet. The course focuses on seven units of study: nature and perspectives of geography, population, cultural patterns and processes, political organization of space, agricultural and rural land use, industrialization and economic development, and cities and urban land use.
In addition to being well prepared for the APHG exam, students will develop an understanding of how humans interact with the earth’s surface.
