Latin I / Monday-Friday 8:00am to 9:00am

Textbook: Wheelock’s Latin

By studying the language’s vocabulary, grammar, and syntax, they not only gain an appreciation for its intricacies and nuances but also learn more about their own language and about language in general.






Pre-Algebra / Monday-Friday 9:00am to 10:00am

Textbook: Saxon Algebra 1/2

Course Description: An introduction to algebra that includes geometry. Topics covered include prime and composite numbers, fractions and decimals, order of operations, coordinates, exponents, square roots, ratios, algebraic phrases, probability, the Pythagorean Theorem, and more.






Algebra I / Monday-Friday 8:00am to 9:00am

Course Description: A formal treatment of algebra forming the foundation for future math study. Topics include signed numbers, exponents and roots, absolute value, area and volume, equations and inequalities, scientific notations, unit conversions, polynomials, graphs, factoring, systems of equations, quadratic equations, direct and inverse variations, exponential growth, statistics, and probability.


Humanities II / Monday-Friday 11:30am to 1:00pm

Textbook: Veritas Press Omnibus II (Middle Ages, Renaissance, & Reformation)

Course Description: Combining Literature, History, Bible, and Christian Theology, Humanities II is a reading and writing seminar focused on the era of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and the Protestant Reformation. Students will read from church fathers such as Athanasius and Augustine, medieval literature including Beowulf and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, and words that sparked the Reformation from the pen of Martin Luther. Rounding off these historical works, students will also engage with several of William Shakespeare's plays and the more modern literature of J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings saga.        



Logic I / Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Textbook: Canon Press Introductory Logic

Course Description: Logic is the science and art of reasoning well. Students will expand their mastery of the grammar of language in order to begin to argue well. Logic and the ability to reason well stand in sharp contrast to a relativistic, pluralistic world that consistently emphasizes the message that there is no objective truth. Students will develop proficiency in the ability to detect and name the fallacies of bad argumentation. They will also delve into the relationships between statements and master the use of syllogisms and inferences in their arguments.



Foundations & History of Science / Monday & Friday 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Textbook: A History of Science and additional literature  

Course Description: This course will introduce the students to the theological and philosophical presuppositions of studying the sciences with a Christian worldview along with a survey of the history of Science in pre-Chrisitan, Chrisitan, and Enlightenment contexts. Students will also take a hands-on approach to this historical study by mimicking the great historical scientific experiments from Plato to Newton.   



English Composition / Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 2:00pm to 2:50pm

Textbook: Memoria Press Classical Composition

Course Description:  This course instructs the novice writer as though he or she were an apprentice to the great master writers. Instruction is based on imitation. Beginning by making the student aware of the structure of sound writing, and proceeding by giving the student the tools to imitate it, the course ends by equipping the student to design his own sound writing. The course begins by acquainting the student with models from which he can gain a sound grasp of structure. Then sentence and word variation, figures of description, rhetorical devices, and stylistic considerations are introduced slowly – all in service of the message to be communicated.



Elective: Christian Ethics / Monday-Friday 9:00am to 10:00pm

Textbook: Christian Ethics: An Introduction to Biblical Moral Reasoning

Course Description: In this introduction to the study and practice of Christian ethics, the student will examine philosophical and theological backgrounds for ethics, the role of biblical authority, and the historical relation between church and culture in order to develop a valid method of moral decision making, examine the importance of ministerial ethics, evaluate ethical issues, and lead the church in applying the gospel to life.
