Home School Curriculum Uncategorized by admin - September 15, 20120 Break Through the Barriers with Awesome Christian Home School Curriculum The Home School Curriculum Source…. Your Christian home school curriculum should do more than simply provide an average education. It should adequately assist you in your endeavor to insure your children get the best education possible from a solid Christian perspective. This leads to a balanced Christian education. Before my wife and I discovered the current curriculum we use, we bounced around from one to the other because we never seemed to find what we were looking for. We did not want a curriculum that merely satisfied our state’s home education guidelines. We wanted something better. We wanted a sound regimen that surpassed the others we had tried. We reviewed for a curriculum that had not only great academics and a separate supplemental Bible course; But we also wanted a Christian curriculum that surpassed the others by integrating a consciousness of God and His word throughout even the academic subjects. It had to teach the basics in a simple, but thorough manner and not side track our students with lots of silly distractions. In short, we wanted our children to have the best home school curriculum so that they could get the best education possible while at the same time insuring that their faith in Jesus Christ was strengthened, rather than torn apart. Well, thanks be to God, we found it. We found it in the Christian home school curriculums of Alpha Omega Publications. Their curricula gave us the tools that made home schooling our children seem easier than ever before. We still watch as our children break through barrier after barrier of challenges presented by the workbooks we use. And the added benefit of this Christian home school curriculum is that the children absolutely love it! Sure, they still have their moments when school seems like such a drag, but overall, they are having the easiest time learning “hard stuff” they have ever had in our family’s 6 year home schooling experience.

Testimonials Home School Curriculum From parents and teachers who have used these outstanding programs with their children: LIFEPAC Testimonials Home School Curriculum “I love this curriculum! It is so easy to use and my children look forward to school each day. My oldest is able to work independently while I help the youngest. It makes both schoolwork and grading a breeze! Anyone could do it!” Pamela McCuen Jones “I have used your Lifepac curriculum with my son for the last four years of his homeschool education and must say that I’m impressed by your detailed, thorough, and concise curriculum that emphasizes ideas and concepts to the point where they are embedded in the memory of the student permanently — a rarity in today’s education system in which students tend to forget material within a few months of learning it, if not weeks. I was simply interested in examining the materials you have for grades eleven and twelve; as college approaches it has become essential that we insure for ourselves the most exceptional curriculum available. Thanks.” Kristen Wilkins Home School Curriculum “As a private Christian school, Monarch Christian Academy is committed to academic excellence with college and university priority objectives. About four and a half years ago we began to look for a core curriculum which offered a higher academic content than that which we were using, while maintaining a strong Christian perspective. Our considerations led us to Alpha Omega Publications. It was our objective to raise our students’ national standardized test scores in every subject. Since switching to AOP we have seen a very positive progression. Scores are up and parents are happy. Both the LIFEPACs and SOS have given us the tools we were looking for to provide our students with the best possible academic results.” Kris Kline Teacher Monarch Christian Academy Home School Curriculum When I first began to homeschool, I asked a friend if she knew of a curriculum for language arts that incorporated grammar, spelling, and writing in one easy-to-follow format. Without hesitation, she recommended LIFEPAC by AOP. It was exactly what I was looking for! We loved it so much that now we use it for several subjects. Thanks for a great, user-friendly curriculum.

Anne Grisham Faith Music & Books, Inc. Home School Curriculum Switched On Schoolhouse Testimonials “I am a military wife recently relocated to Germany with my husband and two children. I worked full time in the States while my kids went to private school. Now that we are in Europe, I do not work, and after “trying” the dept. of defense school, realized that home schooling would be the better option. Not knowing where to start or how to provide a rich and well rounded education on my own, we have been thrilled with what SOS has to offer. My daughter is motivated and excited to “do school” every day. I have the option to change her assignments, review her tests ahead of time, add electives, and change the due dates if we have unexpected holiday’s or appointments! She enjoys the interactive teaching style and the extra nuggets of info provided in the lessons (ie: WWW, spelling bee’s, info clips). Most of all, she’s learning more than she was in the classroom and sings and whistles throughout the day. I am getting to know my daughter during the most crucial time in her life, and realize I could have done this years ago! With SOS as the educator and God as the center, I can do this! Thanks SOS!” Jeanette Rhyne Home School Curriculum “I just wanted to write and thank you for a GREAT curriculum. My daughter has just started the 9th grade SOS R2 homeschool curriculum and we both love it. It is so easy to use and I love the flexibility. It does so much of the work I used to do like scheduling, organizing lessons, and grading. My daughter loves the content she is learning and the variety of teaching techniques used. She also loves how easy it is for her to see what her lessons are and what her grades are. No more backpacks busting at the seams! Thank you so much – we plan to use SOS all the way through high school. WELL DONE! God Bless you all.” Lisa Home School Curriculum “What a blessing it has been for our school to switch to Alpha Omega’s Switched-On Schoolhouse! Each student has a chance to learn and master a concept before going on. Student learns at different levels and speeds and SOS accommodates each one. The automatic grading in SOS has helped the students stay current on their grades and allows us more time to spend with the students.” Darlene Mishler Teacher, Grades 8-10 IronwoodChristianSchool South Bend, IN Home School Curriculum “We were in a bind when a key teacher left our small school last summer, but SOS has enabled us to successfully continue teaching the same number of classes with fewer teachers.” Jeff Clark Maranatha Christian School Home School Curriculum “Annually our magazine conducts a “staff picks” where one quality company’s products are selected over its peers. This year “Best Software” was awarded to Alpha Omega’s Switched-On Schoolhouse. We have heard time and again how effective SOS is, not just academically, but on the budget as well.” Gena Suarez The Old Schoolhouse Magazine Home School Curriculum “I sincerely enjoy doing my school work with the SOS curriculum. It has challenged me to learn. And I believe that I am learning more because I am given clear instructions on what to do. My grades have gone up since I started using SOS.” Brooke Baughman Student Ironwood Christian School South Bend, IN Home School Curriculum “Alpha Omega Publications has breathed fresh air into Calvary Apostolic Academy! Since 1980, our school has served the families of Calvary Apostolic Church. In 2003, we made a huge leap by switching curriculum publishers for grades 3-12. It was a simple decision: a curriculum that automatically grades 90% of the students’ work, only requires a staff person for every 12-15 students, and offers cutting-edge, up-to-date, Bible-based studies—the logical solution was Switched-On Schoolhouse 2.0! Now, our students are receiving the best education available today!” Rev. D.E. Haymon II Calvary Apostolic Academy Home School Curriculum “Alpha Omega’s Switched-On Schoolhouse has allowed me to learn the same advanced material as my previous curriculum but through a much easier format. It allows me to review the lesson without a lot of extra homework. And with the at-your-own pace setup, my grades have improved.” Andrew Gentry Student Ironwood Christian School South Bend, IN Home School Curriculum “Victory Christian School, one of Oklahoma’s largest K-12th grade private schools, has been on the cutting edge of educational innovation, receiving accreditation from both the Oklahoma State Board of Education as well as the International Christian Accreditation Association.
