All students in 8th-12th grades take a one-hour Bible course. This course generates one elective credit per year towards graduation in grades 9th-12th. The curriculum used in Bible classes is Bible Truths for Christian Schools, Bob Jones University Press.
This incremental Bible program takes students on a journey through the stories of the Old and New Testaments. Using a variety of Bible study methods, including survey, in-depth analysis, topical studies, and historical backgrounds, these studies will allow students to recognize major Biblical themes, memorize key verses, understand Creation, Fall, Redemption, and to apply Biblical truth to daily disciplines, and cultural domains.
Each grade level focuses on Biblical content as follows:
8th Grade: A journey through the story of the Old Testament, with emphasis on seeing a messianic thread throughout. Special studies in Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon are also included.
9th Grade: In-depth studies of the book of Acts, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians and Romans - this study focuses on practical principles derived from Paul's life and epistles, including maps of Paul's journeys and the historical setting of the Roman world.
