Honors Economics can be the most rewarding, practical, and applicable class that you’ll take as a senior. In this required class, students will explore both Micro- and Macroeconomics concepts ranging from scarcity, demand, supply, and marginal utility to GDP, economic policy, comparative economics, international trade, globalization, and poverty. They will discover how individual economic decision-making affects all aspects of everyday life, especially in an increasingly interconnected world. Students will play games, engage in current events, and discuss economic issues. A vastly important aspect to this course includes a Christian perspective on stewardship principles, poverty, and how to live lives of service in our depraved world. The Honors Economics course presents a class that is more rigorous in its scope and workload in order to prepare a student for a college classroom and also serves as a prerequisite to getting into AP U.S. Government & Politics in the spring.
