History Comes Alive at Willow

Why Willow is a Great Home School Education Alternative

History is taught at Willow through an interdisciplinary, experiential approach. Our concept is a great home school education alternative because it takes the best of traditional school curriculum combined with the freedom homeschoolers have to immerse children in thematic learning and visiting relevant historical places. In addition, our history curriculum exceeds National Standards.

At Willow, history is taught on a rotational basis. Each year one of the  time periods below becomes the focus for the entire year:

  • American History   1775 – 1900
  • American History   1900 – 2001
  • Ancient History 3000 BCE – 500 CE
  • World History 1400 – 1900 CE

In addition to one of the above, each year children learn about civics, politics, the Constitution and current events

Many field trips are scheduled throughout the year to deepen the children’s understanding of a chosen historical time period, a great home school education alternative. Some of the places we have visited include:

  1. Washington DC
  2. Jamestown, VA
  3. Monticello,Charlottesville, VA
  4. Williamsburg, VA
  5. Tallahassee, FL
  6. Gainesville, FL
  7. St. Augustine, FL

Because Willow is a small school committed to creating a culture of caring in an academically challenging environment, we are an excellent home school education alternative. Come visit us and see for yourself how well your child will do here.
