Founded in 1995, The American Village serves the Nation as educational institution whose mission is to strengthen and renew the foundations of American liberty and self-government by engaging and inspiring citizens, leaders, and stewards.
The American Village builds good citizens on the cornerstone of liberty.
The American Village is a nationally-pioneering classroom and American history and civics education center that engages and inspires 35,000-40,000 students annually from Alabama and Southeastern states in experience-based academic programs related to American history, civics, and government.
Students "step into history" and discover the power and drama of America's journey for independence, liberty, and self-government.
The American Village is embarked on an initiative to expand the number of students served on-campus to 100,000 each year, drawing school and youth groups from throughout the Nation.
On the cornerstone of liberty, the American Village educates and inspires young people to:
· Know America's history — the stories of our country's legacy of liberty and those in every generation who have secured it
· Cherish the ideals of liberty — the founding principles on which our Nation, the Constitution, institutions of American
self-government, and our civic responsibilities are based
· Serve our country as good citizens and leaders — all as stewards of liberty.
