Our Academics

Core Curriculum

Core curriculum provides students with academics, skill building, reading practice, character and wisdom training, and knowledge of God and His Word. This complete package begins with reading development and progresses through high school, giving students a solid foundation for pursuing their life goals.

Each core subject consists of 12 PACEs (Packet of Accelerated Christian Education) per level. Typical students work daily on one PACE in each subject and may be performing at varying levels. The diagnostic test results help to identify academic weaknesses and prescribe a path to help students catch up. Most complete at least 70 PACEs per year, while maintaining academic balance by completing about the same number of PACEs in each assigned subject.

Students who are more skilled may progress at a faster rate or may accelerate in the areas of their academic strengths. Slower students are encouraged to do their best but are able to work at their levels of proficiency and proceed as they are capable.

 
Core Subjects:
  • Math (Levels K–12)

  • English (Levels K–12)

  • Literature and Creative Writing (Levels 2–8)

  • Social Studies (Levels K–12)
