    Overview

    National History Academy Online is a summer experience for high school students interested in the history, law and government of the United States. Each week, you will immerse yourself in a case developed by Harvard Business School Professor David Moss’s Case Method Institute and spend 2 days virtually visiting seminal historic sites.

    National History Academy Online is a unique college prep summer experience for rising 10th, 11th and 12th-grade high school students and recent high school graduates with an interest in the history, law and government of the United States of America. 

    National History Academy offers an inspiring and engaging learning environment. Each week, you will immerse yourself in a case developed by Harvard Business School Professor David Moss’s Case Method Institute. You will also spend one or two days virtually visiting our country’s seminal historic sites and delving deeply into major themes related to the case and the challenging issues we’re facing as a country today.

    You will engage in rich discussions about significant periods in American history and tie them to the struggles we’re facing now. The Academy utilizes a hybrid of formal and informal learning methods through case discussions, virtual site visits, and lectures by noted leaders and scholars. 

    Typically, all synchronous class sessions are from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm EST and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm EST. A guest speaker series is scheduled around 7:00 pm EST.

    Tuition for each one-week session is $95. To ensure the program is accessible for all, we offer a generous scholarship program. Applying for a scholarship is easy: just check the “Scholarship” box on the Application.

    This summer, NHA Online is offering two cases each week. Students are free to pick and choose which cases they would like to register for from either track, but we also offer a track for students who are new to our program (all Session A courses), and a track for students who have attended our programs previously (all Session B courses). These are mere suggestions; students should feel free to select topics that interest them as there are no prerequisites for any of the courses. Tuition is $95 per week and scholarships are available.

      This summer program teaches so many valuable history lessons. You learn all about the founding fathers and historical figures from different perspectives. You learn from events but also from teachers and other students. It teaches responsibility and prepares you for college. Guest speakers teach valuable life experience and the case study method is one of the best ways to learn history. National History Academy is the best out there.

      I had the remarkable opportunity to work as a teaching assistant for this program last summer - and I firsthand saw the incredible impact it had on all of its students. The case study method of history is extremely effective in helping students think critically about the past, putting themselves in historical actors’ shoes to understand why they made the decisions they did. This method also inspires many provoking conversations and allowed students to think outside the traditional way history is often taught. If you’re a student interested in history, politics, or law - or even someone with a passing interest in the social studies, I couldn’t recommend this program enough.
