Students start the day with leadership and discipleship training that equips them biblically, historically, and Constitutionally. We focus on virtue and self-government during this time. Required and recommended resources will be indicated here.
Required and recommended history resources are listed here. You will notice the addition of the biography of a missionary, heroic historical character, or true stories to make history come alive even if it doesn’t quite fit the time period. The Guide (tutor) will also have the discretion to add a book but will notify parents ahead of time. Guides will have training to conduct Socratic Discussions.
Recommended resources only: Some students are eager to trek further for a closer look into history. While these books are optional and will not be in the schedule, they are worth checking out especially if you have a strong reader or curious historian.
