History

Comes Alive

Learning Through the Power of Place

National History Academy is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for high school students to spend the summer exploring American History in a whole new way: through the power of place.

Five weeks
of discovery

June 28 to August 1, 2020

Students will walk in the footsteps of leaders who helped define and shape the American story and focus on critical events in our history – the creation of the Constitution, political division leading to Civil War, Martin Luther King’s fight for civil rights and voting rights, and women’s struggle for equal rights in America – while relating our country’s history to the serious challenges we face as a country today.
