 Algebra I (8-12th grades)

Teacher: Cindy Holman

This high school course will meet the requirements for an Algebra I credit. **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.
