Our Curriculum

 Pre-k to 12th grade graduation, your student will be taught using a biblical viewpoint. Our primary curriculum throughout their education will be Abeka. Eastside Christian Academy can prepare your child for higher education and vocational excellence.

Bible

The foundation for all learning

The Abeka Bible program presents the Bible in the narrative style in which it is written. Students are led through the stories and truths of the Old and New Testaments, including Bible doctrine and application at an age-appropriate level.

It is our goal to help teach children of all ages with the gospel and to equip them to live life with a biblical worldview.

Reading

The means by which each person may learn for himself

 

Because children often emulate what they read, they need reading skills and character-building reading materials from an early age. Abeka employs phonics as the most logical, orderly way to introduce reading to children. Abeka readers are beautifully illustrated and imaginatively written.

Selections are carefully chosen for interest, readability, theme, and values, with literary concepts and questions throughout to guide students in comprehension of reading material and in development of critical thinking skills, including application of valuable principles to their lives.

Books

History

A realistic view of time, government, geography, and economics based on eternal truths

Abeka’s history courses present an inspiring portrayal of peoples, lands, religions, ideals, heroes, triumphs, and setbacks in light of the biblical principles that govern the natural course of history. Students benefit from this traditional, conservative approach to the study of what man has done with the time God has given to him.

Along with the story of history, students see the purpose of government as ordained by God for the maintenance of law and order, not as a cure-all for humanity’s problems. The benefits of free-enterprise economics are presented in contrast with the dangers of Communism, socialism, and liberalism. Geography studies are woven in to provide a well-rounded perspective of locations in conjunction with events. 

This approach results in edifying history texts that give students a historical perspective and instills within them a gratitude for God’s hand in history and a desire to impact the future by fulfilling the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20).

Mathematics
The study of logic and order to apply to science and daily life

Abeka teaches that the laws of mathematics are a creation of God and thus absolute. Man’s task is to search out and make use of the laws of the universe, both scientific and mathematical. This is in significant contrast to the modern math theories that are based on mathematics as a creation of man and thus arbitrary and relative. 

Students enjoy Abeka’s variety in covering multiple branches of mathematics—arithmetic, geometry, algebra, etc.—each year on an age-appropriate level. At the same time, they benefit from the spiral approach of revisiting and building upon the learning throughout each year and from one year to the next. The learning is both relevant for today and foundational for the future, with each course purposefully preparing students for the next.

This solid foundation of mathematical concepts and problem-solving skills, enhanced with a biblical worldview, intentionally and naturally results in lifelong application.
