SOME SYLLABI ARE AVAILABLE AFTER EACH COURSE LISTING. OTHERS WILL BE ADDED SOON!
Christian Studies & Art Appreciation(History) - 1 course option at this time (a second option may be added depending upon enrollment)
New Testament - This course is a yearlong course, charged with the goal to help children grow in knowledge and build Bible literacy. We will begin with an extremely brief survey of some Old Testament stories in order to set the stage for the birth of Christ. In an effort to build faith by teaching Salvation History as real history, students will learn the fundamentals of Bible stories, history, and geography, with solid detail. Who was the”highest prophet of the Lord”? What is “the Messianic title Jesus gave for himself”? What road is called the “Via Dolorosa”? Knowing these facts not only inculcates the great truths of Scripture, but will enable your child to better read great literature. Coupling Art Appreciation with New Testament study, your child will also learn about great artists, composers, and their works. It is our prayer that students begin to appreciate, know, and become inspired by Biblical Art & History.
Science - 3 course options This course is split into two semesters- fall and spring. The fall semester will have student looking to the distant heavenly bodies as we Explore the World of Astronomy.

Latin - 3 course options
New or Younger Latin Students: Latin A (First Form Latin) - First Form’s grammar-first approach focuses on grammar forms and vocabulary because these are the skills suitable for the grammar stage student. All beginners—regardless of age—are in the grammar stage of learning. Syntax (how to use the grammar) and translation are logic and rhetoric stage skills, respectively, and quickly overwhelm the student unless introduced at a slow, gentle pace and taught for mastery. The uniqueness of the Forms Series lies in two features: (1) Commitment to the trivium model of teaching grammar systematically in order to facilitate retention and understanding, rather than topically, to facilitate translation; and (2) Extensive workbook exercises to ensure skills mastery and rapid recognition of inflected forms. - Syllabus available soon.
Students with previous Latin Coursework (and pending Latin Placement Exam) have 2 options:
Independent study with Instructor guidance and tutoring
French - 1 course option
French A (First Start French I) - This course is the perfect introduction to French for all students. In addition to being introduced to French culture, students will learn the basics of grammar and a large French vocabulary. They will practice conversation, reading, and translation in this modern language course. High school students can earn 1 high school credit upon completion of a few additional requirements for the course. - Syllabus available soon.
