Why 2 1/2 Hour Sessions?

Science has found that the brain learns in 20 Minute increments. Therefore, our classes are 25 minutes long.

We have held 25-minute classes since 2004 and we have found that students in the shorter classes outperform those in longer classes.

KIDS AND PARENTS LOVE IT.

Questions and Interesting Facts

1. Do the students have homework?

Yes! Work is assigned for off-line time as it is well known that repetition is required for learning.

2. Are you accredited?

No. It is not necessary for grades 1-8. Our graduates take and pass the GED, which is equivalent to a high school diploma.

3. How do your students rank on tests?

We only tested our students once. They scored in the 96th percentile in Math and the 92 percentile in Reading. Generally speaking, schools that acknowledge God score 2 to 4 years ahead of their public counterparts.

What teaching methods do you use?

1 – Science has found that the brain learns in 20-minute increments. Therefore, our classes are mostly 25 minutes in length.

2 – We teach our students Study and Success Skills which help them to improve their scholastic performance.

3 – We use tried and true pedagogical practices – principles, periodic repetition, emotional anchoring, and periodic review.

4 – We also work to have a relaxed atmosphere in which there are no stigmas concerning academic level or accomplishment: everyone is simply in progress. This allows those who might otherwise be ‘up-tight,’ and could not perform well in that condition to actually blossom.
