Grace Preparatory Academy divides subjects into 4 main categories: Heart Subjects, Creative Subjects, Humanities, and Technical. Read on to discover more about each category.
The heart subjects are included in our curriculum in order to assist families in their desire and quest to teach their children to know and love God. The heart subjects include: Bible, Scripture Memory and Character Training. All grades join together on Monday mornings to kick the week off with Chapel. Children especially love learning worship songs together and hearing from parents that visit as guest speakers.
The Creative subjects emphasize the beauty of God's world. The creative subjects include: Music, Art and Nature Study. New in 2020, we also introduced Performing Arts! Students look forward to exploring creative movement and dance each week during these active lessons.
The Humanities consist of Literature and History. These subjects are studied through history books, readers, read-alouds, map exploring, projects and more. Each year Grace Prep holds our annual Fall Fest - an afternoon full of activities, crafts, games and class plays focused on the historical age being studied each year.
The Technical subjects include: Math, Language Arts, Science, Writing, and Spelling. Each Technical subject is taught through curriculum that encourages hands on learning both in class and at home.
One of the wonderful benefits of homeschooling with Grace Prep is that parents do not need to go through the struggle of choosing quality curriculum. Our team has carefully chosen quality curriculum for each grade, in each subject.
Teaching parents find this to be an extra blessing because it means your child's classmates are learning the same thing on home days as yours. So whether you need a tip or trick for teaching a certain lesson, or perhaps just some encouragement on a long day, you're never alone - you have a community of fellow parents at your fingertips to connect with.
Home day lessons are communicated via Planbook, an online platform that allows you to see daily assignments - this ensures all students are completing the same lessons at the same pace and are prepared for class on the next in-school day.
