Reading & Writing
The means by which each person may learn for himself.
Because children often emulate what they read, they need reading skills and character-building reading materials from an early age. Abeka employs phonics as the most logical, orderly way to introduce reading to children. Abeka readers are beautifully illustrated and imaginatively written.
Selections are carefully chosen for interest, readability, theme, and values, with literary concepts and questions throughout to guide students in comprehension of reading material and in the development of critical thinking skills, including the application of valuable principles to their lives.
The study of logic and order to apply to science and daily life.
Abeka teaches that the laws of mathematics are a creation of God and thus absolute. Man’s task is to search out and make use of the laws of the universe, both scientific and mathematical. This is in significant contrast to the modern math theories that are based on mathematics as a creation of man and thus arbitrary and relative.
Students enjoy Abeka’s variety in covering multiple branches of mathematics-arithmetic, geometry, algebra, etc.-each year on an age-appropriate level. At the same time, they benefit from the spiral approach of revisiting and building upon the learning throughout each year and from one year to the next. The learning is both relevant for today and foundational for the future, with each course purposefully preparing students for the next.
This solid foundation of mathematical concepts and problem-solving skills, enhanced with a biblical worldview, intentionally and naturally results in lifelong application.
A realistic view of time, government, geography, and economics based on eternal truths.
Abeka’s history courses present an inspiring portrayal of peoples, lands, religions, ideals, heroes, triumphs, and setbacks in light of the biblical principles that govern the natural course of history. Students benefit from this traditional, conservative approach to the study of what man has done with the time God has given to him.
Along with the story of history, students see the purpose of government as ordained by God for the maintenance of law and order, not as a cure-all for humanity’s problems. The benefits of free-enterprise economics are presented in contrast to the dangers of Communism, socialism, and liberalism. Geography studies are woven in to provide a well-rounded perspective of locations in conjunction with events.
This approach results in edifying history texts that give students a historical perspective and instills within them gratitude for God’s hand in history and a desire to impact the future by fulfilling the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20).
The investigation of variety, order, and reasonableness revealed in creation.
The Abeka science and health program presents the universe as the direct, orderly, law-abiding creation of God and refutes the man-made idea of evolution. Students are presented with plants, animals, rocks, elements, forces, the human body-and much more-according to an understanding of the design and laws of nature.
Learning is delivered through age-appropriate content in a variety of scientific fields, including life science, chemistry, and physics. This content is supported by full-color illustrations to enhance learning, oral and written activities to reinforce learning, and hands-on demonstrations to personalize learning.
Students are equipped to explore science from a biblical worldview while developing practical use of the scientific method and application of critical thinking skills.
In P.E. (Physical Education), your child will meet physical milestones while also engaging by mixing education with fun! Coach John encourages vigorous activity, fosters cooperation & creativity, emphasizes safety, and stimulates development.
