History is the written record of mankind; but only as it is
studied as “His story,” can we really learn the principles and life lessons it
has for us. When your child is shown the rise and fall of nations and
individuals as they respond to God’s truth, the stories of the history of the world will
begin to make sense. His A Beka Academy
video teacher will take him, along with his video classmates, through the
exciting halls of history to meet the Egyptians and their pyramids, Rome and
its empire, Johann Gutenberg and his printing press, America and the Industrial
Era, the World Wars, and more. He will also study geography, helping him to
understand history even better because it tells us about the places where
history has happened. As your child becomes acquainted with the students
on the video, he will feel as though he is a part of the class. The teacher
will even pause to allow “classmates watching” opportunity to participate
during reviews, geography drills, etc.
The prerecorded online video streaming or DVDs give you the flexibility
to set your own daily schedule. You have a full 12 months to complete the 170
lessons, which take 40–50 minutes of viewing time each. You also have the
option to purchase either the tuition and books or tuition only (for those who
may already have some of the materials and wish to purchase individual items
separately). Both options include the assessment materials, a video manual to
help you stay on track with the video teacher, and record-keeping progress
reports to document progress through the school year.
A Beka Academy also offers the option of Independent Study, in which you
keep your teen’s academic records, or our Accredited Program. Our Accredited
Program does not cost a penny more and provides official report cards, an
official transcript, and free standardized testing. It also gives you the
option to choose digital assessments. With either option, academic assistance
is only a phone call or an e-mail away.
