Spiritual/Bible: Students have both a Bible class and a Biblical Studies class. In Bible class we explore how to use a Study Bible and apply scripture to our personal lives.
Writing: In addition to the writing techniques taught through Grammar class, writing is incorporated throughout the middle school curriculum in all subjects. Students also focus on writing in their Reading/Literature classes and practice technical writing while analyzing novels read throughout the quarter.
Math: Using the McDougal Littell sixth grade math text, students focus on the following math concepts:
History/Social Studies: Students use History of the World from A Beka Books. We cover ancient history from Mesopotamia civilizations to those of Egypt, Israel, India, China, Greece, Rome, Mayas, Africa and early Middle Ages. The primary focus in teaching history is to encourage students to see the past as a key to the future. Students are encouraged to explore both sides of an issue, using logic and discernment to make decisions.
Computer: We use IXL online to support our curriculum. The students have access to this online program at home as well. With thousands of skills that match what we’re learning, as well as insights into student progress, IXL is a great resource to help the students excel.
