Our classes will be set on a rotating schedule to allow the students to get the credits they need to graduate; but also allow for class sizes that make sense. Each student is required to take a Bible class each year and take an English Language Arts class that includes grammar, public speaking, writing, and literature at their level.

The below mathematics classes are available each year. Students are placed by assessment test in the appropriate level.
Foundations Math – a summarizing preparation for higher mathematics inclusive of all elementary and middle maths. Students do not need to take an assessment for this class. 7th graders will be placed here automatically. Students who struggled with the pre-algebra placement will also be placed here.
We teach Saxon mathematics which includes a spiral introduction that incrementally increases the students understanding of higher maths with lots of practice and repetition. This ensures that students fully understand the concepts that will be presented on the ACT. It is highly recommended that students who plan to take the ACT complete at least through Algebra 2. Students who successfully complete Algebra 2 will have also earned a Geometry credit due to course content over the previous two years.
High school students will cycle through four sciences with all grades receiving the same science each year. Junior high students (7th -8th) will cycle through two natural sciences that will prepare them for the more rigorous high school sciences.
This 36-week study of biology begins with an overview of chemistry while opening a deeper understanding of the living things that God created. The course moves through the nature of cells, ecosystems, biomes, the genetic code, plant and animal taxonomies, and more.
Chemistry is a thorough, practical, engaging lab-based curriculum that focuses on chemistry concepts and their applications. Even better, everything is strongly rooted in a biblical worldview. This curriculum is in-depth enough to prepare future STEM majors for college but accessible for any student needing high school chemistry.
Anatomy & Physiology
Students will discover the intricate design of the human body, explore medical history, and unlock the code of life. Through intriguing texts, mini-biographies, historical perspective, worksheets, illustrations, and more, students will explore the human body from genetics to bones to surgeries as they discover a powerful array of sciences and medical advances!
The role of God in creating and maintaining the natural laws is actually critical to your understanding of physics. Discover how God’s wisdom is revealed in the creation of the universe, gravity, light, electric forces, magnetic forces, nuclear forces, sound waves, heat energy, motion, electromagnetism, radioactivity, time, cosmology, and more! Once Physics has been taught, we go back to Biology the next year and start the cycle over.
7th – 8th Grade Sciences
Elements of Faith
Elements of Faith is a devotional-style guide to the Periodic Table. Designed as a 36-week pre-chemistry course for junior high students, Elements of Faith brings the Periodic Table to life and shows how each element relates to God’s creation. (considered Intro to Chemistry)
Junior high students will explore God’s glory on display in the scientific study of the physical world, astronomy, and nature. Students will learn scientific facts and principles that support the authority of God’s Word, His role as Creator and the way He put the world together! The material in this class is also rigorous enough to be considered a high school credit.
Junior high and high school students (7th – 11th) will cycle through all required social sciences as they are offered and as their credit needs dictate. Seniors will study Civics with one semester of Economics and one semester of US Government. Seventh and eighth graders may receive a credit for a social science course if they obtain an A. Otherwise they can retake the course when it occurs later in the rotation.
High school students will develop their Christian worldview while studying the political and faith perspectives which have impacted American history and cultural changes over time. Survey the history of America from native peoples, European settlements, nation-building, and expansion through the modern age. Actively build your student’s strong biblical worldview, learning the political and faith perspectives that have impacted its history and cultural changes over time.
US Geography (1 semester)
This Charlotte-Mason based literature guide uses narration and the notebook approach to give students experience that integrates reading, reasoning, relating, and recording. Step-by-step lessons guide students through each part of the lesson, and include what chapters to read, discussion questions, vocabulary, web links to expand your study, and instructions on how to complete the mapwork.
Mississippi History (1 semester)
Students will delve into the history of Mississippi and understand the geography, government, climates, and all that makes Mississippi such a rich cultural heritage as well as the beauty that lies within its borders.
Students will study from the beginning of nations at the Tower of Babel, the beginning of writing in Sumer, the rise of republican government in Rome, the revival of humanities in the Renaissance, the rise of exploration from Europe, the consequences of Communism in Russia, to present day and how God’s hand has been shaping our world from the beginning and guiding nations along the way.
Students will study the landscapes and cultures of our world, identifying borders, landmarks, climates, and more about each nation and area of the world.
Civics: Economics / US Government
Students have one semester of Economics where they will learn Biblical principles of finance for personal, business, and national scope. This course was designed to be practical enough to impact the student’s life. Students will also have one semester of Government that presents the principles of the Biblical philosophy of government as originally established by the Founding Fathers and as practiced in the American system. Students will also be exposed to numerous writings on America’s Christian heritage and will learn to apply principles of government from Bible passages. Students will understand how the American system of government works and how they participate in it.
