Recommended Course: Modern Jordanian History

This course delves deep into the events and people of the past century in an attempt to answer the question “what does it mean to be Jordanian.” Students have the opportunity to investigate rare Arabic primary sources (in translation!), engage in monthly guest lectures with parliamentarians, professors and activists, write and present analytical research papers on topics of your choice, adventure on three curricular field trips around Jordan, and explore Jordanian identity from a diverse range of lenses. In line with His Majesty's vision, the year ends with a capstone project wherein students explore a problem facing Jordan today and propose evidence-based solutions.

Program of Study

Students participating in the Arabic Year program are able to construct a course schedule that meets their individual academic interests and curricular goals, within the framework of the King’s Academy curriculum and requirements. Like all students at King’s Academy, those in the AY program must take year-long Arabic, mathematics and English courses. In addition, AY program participants can take year-long or term-long courses in science, history, world languages, the arts and other areas. For those students returning to a home school after participating in Arabic Year, efforts are made to coordinate a student’s courses at King’s Academy with the home school’s requirements and recommendations. Most students at King’s Academy take six courses per term.
