Leadership:

Each year a student body council is selected by parents. This council consists of 3 members, and will oversee the the classroom devotionals.                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Writing Requirement:

Students at this age will be required to write their own textbooks known as a Binder Book for their Math and Science.

Students will learn “how to learn” by completing 6 steps in this process. They will learn how to research in the scriptures, and textbooks, illustrate, create a cover, bibliography, title pages etc. and then bound it for resale if desire.

**Please note: students will NOT be able to accomplish all their work needed for their Binder Books or projects during this time. After school hours or Mon/Friday will have to have designated time set aside for goals to be accomplished depending upon parent’s desire for academics.
