The elementary program uses a combination of the A Beka curriculum developed at Pensacola Christian College and the curriculum produced by the Bob Jones University Press. Both curriculums take a traditional approach to education, utilizing a phonics-based reading program, effective use of drill, creationist science, and solid, foundational studies in language, penmanship, spelling, arithmetic, history and health. Bible class uses materials produced by Positive Action for Christ, a publisher in Rocky Mount, NC that specializes in Bible curriculum. In addition to the academics, students have music, art and gym classes on a regular basis. Private instrumental music lesson are also available.
