"Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart to My knowledge; for it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; let them all be fixed upon your lips, so that your trust may be in the Lord…"

2022-2023 Course Descriptions
Kindergarten/1st Grade (Kathy Anderson)
Teacher's Aid (Lee Anderson)
Fall Focus: Mountain Eco System
Spring Focus: Ocean Eco System
Knowing that God's love is higher than the highest mountains and His faithfulness deeper than the deepest oceans, we will be taking a look at God's creation of both of these eco systems to see our Lord's perfect design.
1st/2nd Grade (Gisella Likens)
This year we will learn how God designed habitats and biomes and the animals that inhabit them. In the fall we will focus on tropical rain forests, taiga forests, temperate forests, and the savanna biomes. In the spring our focus will be on grasslands, deserts, tundra, fresh water, and marine biomes. We will deepen our understanding of God’s Word through biblical history and learn how to boldly share and defend the truth of the gospel. We will also work on the elements of story structure, beginning writing skills, and basic grammar. Children are naturally curious and love learning. I hope to inspire their learning by engaging them in fun hands-on projects.
3rd-High School Grade Rotation
Creative Writing (Chris Smart)
Oh no, not writing! Many think the subject of writing is a chore, but it’s not here! Using the IEW program as our base, students learn how to dress-up compositions, organize thoughts, and broaden their vocabulary. Young
students learn how to write through the use of storyboards and fables, while older students engage in various writing endeavors. They write about the wild and crazy as well as things that are important and close to the heart. Please join us as we create colorful descriptions, fantastic fables, humorous poems, and praise God, too. Bring your favorite pen or pencil AND your imagination as we explore the fabulous world of writing!
Engineering through the lens of Photography (Diann Holmes)
And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. Matthew 7:25
When we think of engineering, we think of building something. And when we think of builiding something, the integrity of the foundation always comes to mind. This semester we will explore the world of engineering and how one building project can involve many different areas of engineering, all of them overlapping, and extremely important for the success and integrity of the final product.
We will ponder questions of why a problem is important to solve and learn about real problems and real engineers that met the challenge to solve making lives easier.
Our experiments will touch on the branches of electrial, mechanical, chemical, civil, biomedical, and aerospace engineering. Come and join the fun as we learn about the flow of electricity, build a force field, and a paper towel or a marshmallow tower...on a bed of marbles! We will try our hand at designing play dough log cabins and make parachutes to test drag! As the semester progresses, we will design small machines like grippers, sail cards, and propellers! We will become partners in crime as we try to figure out ways to clean up an oil spill! Our class time will be packed with creativity, fun, and light-hearted competition as we try to work together on teams to meet our deadlines within the parameters of our task at hand. Creativity, teamwork, and communication is the game!
Lessons will be enhanced by photography homework assignments that will challenge creativity and solidify our enineering concepets.
I am so excited to get started! See you in the fall!
Biblical Worldview and Apologetics (Breezy Lewis)
Do you want your kids to know what a Biblical Worldview is, why we believe what we believe, and how to “give an answer to everyone who asks them about the hope that lies within them, with gentleness and respect?” (1 Peter 3:15) We will learn about all this and more in Worldview class this year. It is my goal to give our kids a solid foundation of God’s truth to build their lives on that won’t fall when shaken. We will study what God’s Word says about truth and learn that while ultimately our relationship with God is based on faith, that doesn’t mean there isn’t evidence for what we believe!
The Bible: How to Read It, What to do With it, and Why it Matters
Focus: The book of Hebrews
In this class our focus is on learning how to read the Bible. Through God’s Word
we learn why God is worthy of our trust and obedience and what that looks like in our daily lives as we become disciples of Jesus, living in His grace and His life. The goal is to equip students to approach God’s Word with confidence and learn how to enjoy reading it for themselves. Students will be able to see the themes of God’s grace, mercy, and wisdom through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Biblical ignorance is a serious problem in our local churches and Christian families, and this course will offer solid biblical instruction that your students will be deeply impacted by. There is no curriculum for this course; the Bible is the only book that is read and discussed!
