This course is equivalent to an introductory college-level course in human geography. The course introduces students to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and alteration of Earth’s surface. Students employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine socioeconomic organization and its environmental consequences. They also learn about the methods and tools geographers use in their research and applications. This course covers all content required for the AP exam while also bringing a biblical worldview into the analysis and discussion.

Reviews from Students and Parents
“This course is for everyone. It is for the logic-oriented student who likes to have a specific answer for every question. It is for the creative student who likes to come up with new solutions for new situations. It is for those in between. Although it might not seem like an important course, this class helps students to understand real-world issues, come up with solutions, and even predict problems the world might face. The teacher does an excellent job preparing students for the AP test at the end of the year by reviewing the material and providing practice problems to do in class. I absolutely loved this class, and I was more than prepared for the test at the end of the year.”
“This class has taught me so much, and I loved it. Now don’t get me wrong, this was a challenging class, but the difficulty has been so rewarding. I am not a history person nor a geography person, but this course was interesting, and looking back, I’ve learned many things.”
“This class was an absolute blast! The homework every week was interactive, understandable, and overall taught me so much! The teacher is amazing and is always ready to help and elaborate on anything that is not understood. The preparation for the AP Exam was excellent.”
“This was my first AP class and I would recommend this course to others because it helped me learn all the skills I need to take the AP exam. I learned many outlooks of human geography including social, political, economic, and environmental aspects.”
