Open Tent Academy Open Tent Academy is an all-inclusive, virtual environment where homeschoolers (and “after-schoolers”) can take an array of classes, taught by instructors, who are experts in their fields.
Across the globe, people have asked questions such as:
Where/How did the world begin?
Who are we?
What is our purpose is in life?
These questions, when viewed through the prism of different religious traditions, have a variety of answers. Throughout human history, religion has played a role in history, literature and current events. Without a basic understanding of various religious traditions, students often can’t relate to what they read in fiction and non-fiction texts. In this survey class, we will explore some of the major faiths practiced by people worldwide.For each one studied, we will learn about:
Rites of passage.

Registration deadline is March 15, 2021.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
