CURRICULUM

Our school uses the biblically based School of Tomorrow individualized pace curriculum produced by the School of Tomorrow corporate headquarters, which are located in Largo, Florida.  We are also incorporating subjects from Alpha Omega's "Switched On Schoolhouse."  These courses are computer enhanced classes that not only teach the subject matter, but increase computer skills as well.  We currently offer Science SOS classes to all students 9th - 10th grade, while the Senior High learning center's curriculum is primarily SOS.  As our school acquires more computers, additional courses will be offered to all Learning Centers.

This curriculum is for all major subjects in all grades which includes, math, English, social studies, speech, health, music, church history, old and new testament, computers and a wide range of other courses and electives. Also, our reading programs, Pre-school with Ace and Christi and The ABC's of ACE, teach children to read using phonics. Biblical character traits are built in to the phonics program, giving the youngest students the opportunity to learn God's Word.

PACE: All work is divided into booklets called PACEs (i.e. a Packet of Accelerated Christian Education). These self-instructional booklets are a combination of textbook and workbook. Students work all answers in pencil, to enable them to make corrections as needed. They are directed in their PACEs when to score.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE: The spiral of learning, around which our curriculum is written, brings the student back to previous concepts for drill and reinforcement.  Not only, will the child "get it", but that he or she will also retain it. When your child completes the suggested course of study, he or she can expect to receive test scores that will qualify him for college entrance.

INDIVIDUALIZATION: Each child is different and has needs uniquely his own. Any successful academic program must  identify and focus on individual student needs. Each new student completes a diagnostic test, which identifies his academic performance levels for English, math, spelling, social studies, and science.  Whether the student is a high achiever or a moderate paced learner, the School of Tomorrow educational process proceeds at the exact level determined by the c child's ability making it possible for each student to master the subject.

CHARACTER BUILDING: It is permeated with traditional moral values, biblical principles, and patriotism. Your child can gain a quality education while learning basic life principles that enable him to assume responsibility for their adult life emphasizing the importance of  building Godly character. The main focus is wisdom.

MORAL VALUES: Includes Scripture memory passages and references to God and Jesus Christ - all designed to help students develop moral character, a sense of accountability, and wisdom in their lives. Standards of personal conduct, school policies, and curriculum continue to build the student's sense of responsibility and integrity.
