American History (6th-8th grades)

Teacher: Adonna Pryor 

A multi-sensory, literature based class on American History. This class will utilize timelines, original documents, maps, worksheets, classic literature, lapbooking, videos, and music to study the United States of America from the early inhabitants to the 21st century. Guest hosts will speak on colonial dance, American folk music and artists, and the D-Day invasion. 

Algebra I (8-12th grades)

Teacher: Cindy Holman

This high school course will meet the requirements for an Algebra I credit. The curriculum will be from School of Tomorrow (known as ACE Paces). **Prerequisite required: Pre-Algebra or other comparable-scope course.** 

Christian Artist (7th-12th grades)

Teacher: Jennifer Poore

This course takes a two-fold approach to the subject of the Christian artist. The first is an exploration of the grounds for art in the Bible and church history, exploring what it means to be made in the image of a Creator God, how the command to have domino is still relevant today, and how the fall and the coming of Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit affect our understanding and practice of dominion. The second half of the course explores the specifics of how a Christian understanding of art practically affects our personal lives, as both givers and receivers of art. Topics will include pursuing art as a career, how to incorporate art into your life and community when your career is in another field, success vs. excellence, pursuing art in a non-Christian culture, creating community, calling, worship, and much more. The structure of the course will be a mixture of reading, discussion, lecture, guest speakers, and student presentation. 

Fractions, Decimals, & Percents

Grades: 5th-7th

Teacher: Adonna Pryor

This class will use a combination of methods to engage as many senses as possible, including manipulatives, worksheets, videos and games.  Fall semester will focus on fractions; spring semester will focus first on decimals then percents and word problems.  Students will leave each week with work for 3 more days to bring back the following week to discuss in class.
