This two-day program is designed to train middle school students for the rigors of a High School college preparatory program. Through teacher directed in-class and online guidance, students receive planned weekly assignments and grades with an integrated Christian worldview. Parents engage and interact at home with their student through assignments and online learning with teacher supplied lessons and grades. We feature core academic and elective courses that follow typical grade-level scope and sequence. 

*Please note – Grasping God’s Word is a two day elective only available at the Winter Garden Campus.

Grasping God’s Word will teach the foundational principles and tools of biblical interpretation. We will survey numerous biblical passages to demonstrate solid interpretive strategies for understanding the Bible. Students will have the opportunity to try out the interpretive skills they learn by applying them to specific genres and contexts. Grasping God’s Word treats Scripture as the solid rock of Christian faith, one that students will grip more easily when they know how to read it, how to interpret it, and how to apply it.
