We have chosen to use a blend of the Abeka, BJU Press, and DeepRoots Bible curriculums because of their strong emphasis on biblical worldview, rigorous yet developmentally appropriate learning standards, and research-based best practices used throughout the structure of each program. These characteristics help students be adequately prepared for college or a professional life. A Christian perspective is integrated purposefully into every subject and biblical principles are appropriately used to emphasize or illustrate concepts.
Since children have differing abilities, interests, and strengths in the academic disciplines, it is our goal to be continually striving to incorporate a variety of strategies not only designed to build and strengthen knowledge but also to develop critical thinking and study skills. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) projects are integrated into the curriculum to give students added opportunity to add a unique creativity and ingenuity to the learning process. Educational goals and objectives are used to drive instruction and designed to support individual student needs for each grade and subject area and instill in them the desire to become lifelong learners.
Reading, vocabulary, spelling, phonics, language, penmanship, history and geography, science, health, math, Bible, computer skills, art, and music are the subjects taught in K5 through 12th grade. In addition to the subjects previously listed, middle and high school students are also taught literature, government, chemistry, algebra I and II, precalculus, geometry, and electives such as foreign languages and consumer sciences.
Students will be exposed to a variety of genres from ancient history to present times in addition to the texts that correlate with the curriculum. Before presented to students, secular and Christian texts are evaluated for their academic soundness and their appropriateness in relationship to our conservative Christian values.
