What Will Your Child Learn When?

See Scope & Sequence
Abeka in person

Biblical, Parent-Led Philosophy

Abeka’s curriculum is parent led and focuses on building character. Why?

  1. Because it’s biblical. It follows Proverbs 22:6a, which says, “Train up a child in the way he should go.”

  2. Because it’s practical. With a parent-led philosophy, you can make sure your children are well prepared for life—without gaps in their learning.

  3. Because oral teaching and review is so important. Children learn by hearing, seeing, and doing. If education is entirely reading based or entirely project based, they miss out on that vitally important piece of the puzzle.

Challenging Content from a Christian Perspective

What does “Christian curriculum” mean?

What does “Christian curriculum” mean?

Some curriculums incorporate faith and doctrine, but neglect academics.

Some include challenging academics, but neglect faith. (The materials are mainly secular, with a few verses sprinkled in.)

With Abeka, you can count on high academics AND a biblical worldview so your children aren’t left half prepared to make a difference in the world.

Every subject is approached from a Christian perspective, and you’ll find Scripture and biblical principles used to emphasize or illustrate concepts.

Methods that Make Your Job Easier

Do you recognize the terms spiral approach, learning preferences, and cross-subject integration?

Read on for some quick explanations and—more importantly—to find out why those methods make your job easier.

Abeka’s spiral approach

Building from the simple to the complex, with frequent review and application within each grade and from grade to grade.

  • This means you prevent learning gaps from the first day you teach with Abeka until the last.
  • The work you put in now pays off later (like when thoroughly teaching and reviewing multiplication tables saves your child from dreading math).
  • Since repetition is the key to learning, concepts are truly learned–and remembered.
  • Because concepts aren’t presented just one time, or in one way, it means you’re giving your child multiple opportunities to be successful.
  • Rough days are less stressful when you realize you don’t have just ONE CHANCE to make sure your child understands a concept.

Learning preferences

When faced with the 3 major learning styles (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic, or hearing, seeing, and doing), learning preferences are how you prefer, if given a choice, to learn something. Instead of favoring 1 and neglecting the others, we incorporate all 3.

  • By using all 3, you’re teaching your children to be adaptable, resilient learners.
  • You’re preparing them for college and real life.
  • You’re not putting your children—or yourself—in a learning-preferences box.
  • You don’t have to feel guilty because you don’t use a different curriculum for each child.
  • You’re doing what the best teachers do to help their students learn.

Cross-subject integration

Pulling in concepts from 1 subject into several others to reinforce concepts and tie learning together

  • Learning comes to life more with cross-subject integration (like when students learn about Abraham Lincoln in history, read about him in language arts, do a project with pennies and top hats in art, and write a story using what they know).
  • Children feel a sense of familiarity and accomplishment when they see something they already learned (like spelling words) “pop up” in another subject (like science or literature).
  • It engages curiosity and emphasizes the big picture.

How much time does homeschooling with Abeka take?

The times below are based on the typical time it takes for many families. Since every family is unique, they won’t be true for everyone.

Times can vary based on how many children you have, whether you choose to school year-round, etc.

Each subject will take roughly 40 minutes for the “average” child, plus homework time.

That means…

  • In kindergarten, you can be done in about an hour and a half.
  • In elementary, you can be done by lunch.
  • In high school, you can be done by 2:00 or 3:00.

Teaching Time

How much of that time is independent work, and how much is teaching time?

Typically, there’s 10—15 minutes teaching time per subject. (This may increase for math and higher grades.)

How much time does homeschooling with Abeka Academy take?

The lessons for each grade include Bible, extra enrichment activities, and optional subjects like art. The times below don’t include homework time.

  • Kindergarten takes around 2 ⅓–3 hours.
  • Elementary takes about 3–3 ⅓ hours.
  • In junior high and high school, each class takes 45–50 minutes.

How does using Abeka for several children work?

If you’re using Abeka Academy video homeschooling for full grades, it’s very simple.

  • You’ll have video manuals to keep you and your kids on track. Quiz and test keys for grading will be included free.
  • Since you’re not the only teacher, you’ll check work and keep your kids accountable.
  • You can choose DVD or streaming format (whatever works better for you).

What if you want to do the teaching yourself?

It takes a little bit of planning ahead, but you can do it!

  • Since part of each lesson is teaching time and part is independent work, you can teach one child while the others work independently.
  • You could also consider teaching some of your children yourself and using video lessons for others. Or you could teach some subjects yourself and use video lessons for others.
