Grades 7 and 8 and High School

 

Most of these classes are year-round. Students will choose courses based on the hour they are offered. Some courses may require you to purchase books or pay an additional fee. We will let you know as soon as possible which ones require materials or fees.

 

 

Physical Science: This course will include components from Chemistry and Physics. The specifics are being developed, but it will be geared to students in these grades.

Cooking: Learn your way around a kitchen. Students will learn about chopping, dicing, mincing, and slicing, among other skills. Students will learn about different cooking methods while preparing simple, yet tasty dishes each week. 7th and 8th grades only.

Coding/Robotics: Learn how to program and how robots work. Details are being developed, but this class is sure to be fun for STEM lovers. NOTE: Students will need to bring a laptop.

Artistic Drama: This class will combine what students love about the arts. Some students will focus on the beauty of art. Others will expand on their love of dramatic interpretations of plays and theater. This class will teach students to express themselves creatively and, of course, dramatically. 

American Sign Language: Need a foreign language requirement? Want to learn how to speak with your hands? Did you know that sign language has its own grammar components? Did you know that facial expressions and body language are key? Come learn ASL and walk away with a new language.

Violin: Students will learn about the basics of violin, including learning how to play, how to read music, and how to properly care for the violin. Unless already owned or otherwise purchased, parents will need to rent the instruments. This class is limited in size-first come, first serve. Students who have previous violin experience will be moved to an intermediate level; new students will start as beginners.

Financial Literacy: It’s crucial that the next generation learns the truth about money before they leave the nest. This curriculum was designed to save you time and energy while equipping your students with the tools they need for a successful launch into the real world (from the publisher).

English/Writing: Students will grow as writers and learn how to write different types of essays.  Grammar, literary devices, and research skills will also be incorporated. A student must be able to read.  If asked to write a paragraph, they should be able to do so independently without struggle.  They should also be able to exercise kindness and self-control.  Students will be held to a high standard of behavior so that the atmosphere of learning and positive participation is unhindered.  God will be honored in our class. 

Yearbook: Want to help capture memories of this school year? Have an interest in photography, writing, and content organization? This might be the class for you. This class has a limit of 8-10 students. Students will get “in” based on date of registration. We may be able to do a 12-week class and then switch to another course if we have sufficient interest.

 

These next two classes have been combined to get the best possible class.

 

LEGO Faith Builders Bible: Faith Builders uses a foundation project, Faith Builders lesson, and a main building project that reinforces the less. Students should bring a Bible. Students will need a box of LEGO for this class. Details will be provided soon. 7th and 8th grade only.

High School Bible: Do you know what faith is? Why do we believe what we believe? Do you know how to defend or explain your faith? Let’s dig into the Bible and learn what God has for us.

Afternoon Session

This session is still being developed. Once we see what kind of interest there is, we will determine how this session will proceed. Below is what we tentatively plan to do. Ideas are welcome! For now, all classes are TENTATIVE.

Government & Economics: This class may be offered if there is sufficient interest. Students can learn how the government works, perform in a mock trial, and build their own town. This class will help students understand how the government operates with certain laws and monetary allowances. This class is open to 6th-high schoolers.

 

Apologia Marine Biology: This class may be offered if there is sufficient interest. Marine Biology is offered for those who have passed Biology. Textbooks will need to be purchased. Details on textbook purchase will be provided after registration.

 

Apologia Biology w/lab: This class may be offered in the afternoon if there is sufficient interest. This high school biology course is designed to be the homeschool student’s first high school science class and is college-prep. Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, is a foundational course that covers everything students need to prepare successfully for a college-level biology course. Biology is open to 8th grades and older.

 

Arts & Crafts: This class may be offered in the afternoon if there is sufficient interest. Let’s have some fun being crafty! Ideas for this class include fibers (think knitting and crocheting), fun crafts like paper mache, painting and more. There are so many opportunities to get messy and have fun in this after-hours class.

 

Enrichment Classes: This class may be offered in the afternoon if there is sufficient interest. These classes are being developed. Our ideas include a chess club, tutoring, movies & popcorn, an extra PE class, fun activities, OCC preparation, and more. Ideas are welcome. This class would be for those whose parents are either teaching, have kids in other afternoon classes, or who just want an extra hour or two of learning. Sign up to indicate interest and we will determine what we can offer and to which age groups.
