Language Arts targets the sequential development of communication skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Because Language Arts is an integrated program, the elementary grades weave skill topics (Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking) together within units. In the middle and high school grades, skills are developed unit by unit. The major strands are detailed as follows: Reading (Vocabulary, Comprehension Skills, Literature Studies), Writing (Spelling, Penmanship, Grammar, Composition), Speaking and Listening, and Special Topics (Visual Media, History of the English Language, The Bible as Literature, Book Reports, and Study and Research Skills).
Math is a comprehensive, easy-to-use curriculum. Students will develop and build math skills through various question formats, multiple exercise techniques, and fun learning games. This motivating math curriculum prepares students for using math successfully in real-life situations. Concepts are developed through grade levels to endure mastery. The curriculum targets this goal by focusing on six major themes: Number Skills, Geometry, Algebra, Data Analysis, and Pre-calculus.
Science is an exciting, Bible-based curriculum. Students develop observational skills as they study the physical universe God created. The program involves a combination of on- and off-computer assignments including experiments. Elementary and middle-school grades (3-9) observe each area of science on an individual survey basis, usually unit by unit. The high school grades (10-12) focus on specific areas of science— Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The four major strands are as follows: Life Science (Plants and Animals, Human Anatomy and Personal Care, Biology), Space and Earth Science (Geology, Weather, Space), Physical Science (Chemistry, Physics), Nature of Science (Scientific Method, Experimentation, Technology.)
History and Geography is a complete, Bible-based curriculum. The goal of these courses is to develop students’ understanding of and appreciation for God’s activity as seen in the record of man and his relationships. The curriculum targets this goal by focusing on six major themes: Geography (World and American), History (World, History, and Religious History), Government and Citizenship, Economics, and Social Studies.
