Social Studies

Nashua Christian Academy is committed to discipling students within a Christian worldview. This perspective is particularly important in history, that glass in which we see the motives, ideas and deeds of men, and in which we seek to discern truth from error, good from bad, and beauty from distortion. Social studies provide a critical forum for students to consider God’s sovereignty over relationships, from the family unit to local communities, to the development of our nation and of world civilizations. Specifically addressed are good citizenship, locally and globally, and informed participation in our government (Isaiah 46:9-10; Romans 13:1; 1 Peter 2:13).
