Each Five Subject Set Contains the Following
Subjects:

  • Bible – Utilizing the King James Version
    and the New American Standard Bible, the
    Bible curriculum covers a variety of biblical
    material to assist in the development
    of practical Christian living. The Bible
    curriculum provides seven major themes:
    Theology, Attributes of God, Biblical
    literature, Biblical geography, Christian
    growth, Christian evidence, and a special
    emphasis for each grade level.
  • History & Geography – The goal of these
    courses is to develop students’ understanding
    of and appreciation for God’s activity
    as seen in the record of man and his relationships.
    The curriculum targets this goal by focusing
    on six major themes: Geography (World
    and American), History (World, American,
    and Religious), Government and Citizenship,
    Economics, and Social Studies.
  • Language Arts – Because SOS Language
    Arts is an integrated program, the elementary
    grades weave skill topics (Reading, Writing,
    Listening, Speaking) together within units.
    In the middle and high school grades,
    skills are developed unit by unit. The
    major strands of this Christian homeschool
    curriculum are detailed as follows: Reading
    (Vocabulary, Comprehension Skills, Literature
    Studies), Writing (Spelling, Penmanship,
    Grammar, Composition), Speaking and Listening,
    and Special Topics (Visual Media, History
    of the English Language, The Bible as
    Literature, Book Reports, Study and Research
    Skills).
  • Math – Students will develop and build
    math skills through the use of various
    question formats, multiple exercise techniques,
    and fun learning games. Concepts are developed
    through grade levels to ensure mastery.
    The curriculum targets this goal by focusing
    on the major themes of number skills,
    geometry, algebra, data analysis, and
    probability.
  • Science – Students focus on the development
    of observational skills as they study
    the physical universe God created. The
    program involves a combination of on-
    and off-computer assignments including
    experiments. Grades 3-9 observe each area
    of science on an individual survey basis,
    usually unit by unit. Grades 10-12 focus
    on specific areas of science–Biology,
    Chemistry, and Physics. The four major
    strands of this Christian homeschool curriculum
    are as follows: Life Science (Plants and
    Animals, Human Anatomy and Personal Care,
    Biology), Space and Earth Science (Geology,
    Weather, Space), Physical Science (Chemistry,
    Physics), Nature of Science (Scientific
    Method, Experimentation, Technology).
