  • Students will complete take-home assignments, including written answers to questions and take-home tests.

  • Students should expect to spend at least 3.5 hours per week outside of class time preparing for this course.

  • Parents are encouraged to engage their students in conversation on these extremely relevant and practical issues and to explore the relevance of God’s Word to our economic system.  Parents should ensure that students complete the weekly reading assignments and take-home assignments.

  • There are no prerequisites for this course, but students must be capable of high school level work and be prepared for robust class discussions.
