Goals for this year include memorizing and reciting the book of Philippians by studying 3-5 verses a week. Together readers will race to discover: what the good news about Jesus is & how to learn it for themselves, how they can pass the baton of belief on to others, how they can stay faithful & run the race even when others quit.
- Winning the Race: Students will discover how various Bible characters strove to win the race that God set for them. This study also presents an overview of New Testament doctrine, including eschatology from the book of Revelation.
The Vocabulary Workshop program focuses on the words, their meanings, their ranges of application, and their uses in context. The approach is systematic because it begins with and builds upon a word list drawn from vocabulary that students will encounter in their reading. It provides students with the vocabulary skills they will need to achieve higher-level reading proficiency and to succeed at standardized tests.
- The Mystery of History, Volume III: The years of the Renaissance and Reformation were years of growth and change for both the world and the church. The Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations presents the years 1461-1707 through Christ-centered lens, exploring the backdrop to and significance of major cultural and historical events, alongside events in the history of Christianity. Moving through time chronologically, achievements in art, music, literature, science and philosophy are studied using a Classical approach, with an emphasis on reading, writing, research and hands-on activities.
- Latin: As enrichment to their history studies, our sixth grade students will explore the roots of the English language as they work through Latina Christiana Book 1. Students will learn vocabulary words with corresponding English derivatives, Latin sayings that teach Christian or Classical heritage, and Latin songs, prayers and conversational phrases.

It is the purpose of the Art Curriculum to help students discover the ways the Creator's image is reflected in His Creation. Though "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23), man still retains God-given abilities to create new images and forms. Concentrated studies in art history and culture are aimed at teaching students how man has used this creativeness to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ through whom "all things were made and without Him nothing was made that was made" (John 1:3). Projects are aimed at guiding students in the discovery of their
God-given talents and on improving their skills to appreciate art and express themselves artistically as it pleases God.
The goal of this course is to not only to foster a love for music and the worship of our God through it, but to foster musical skills through active music making so that each student can achieve his or her musical potential. Music touches every part of our lives, and often transcends words in its expression. It is a powerful tool that can and should be used for the kingdom of God. As students explore various facets of music, they will be enriched through an environment of varied tonalities, meters, and styles. They will actively make music, rather than just talking about it and will seek out opportunities to bless the surrounding community with music as led by the Holy Spirit of God.
