LUOA’s goal for this course is to engage each student by offering an introduction to the Bible, along with major themes, characters, and life principles found in the Bible. The objective is to take the timeless truths of God’s Word and make them relevant and applicable to each student’s life. This course is designed to build on the content of our 7th grade Bible course and equip you with additional knowledge of Scripture.
LUOA’s 8th-grade Language Arts course allows students to learn grammar rules that review and build on previous grades. In this course, students are challenged to build an expanding vocabulary through higher-level word studies. Writing is an integral part of this curriculum, as students learn not only the basics of the writing process, but also how to create original pieces in a number of different writing genres. Literature, too, is a strong element in this English class. Students read works from various genres and cultures and respond to these works by means of projects and response pieces. All elements of this class are taught from a biblical worldview that analyzes secular worldview messages prevalent in today’s society.
Getting started is simple. Once you have completed the application and sent in your student’s records from his/her previous school, we will complete the enrollment process by setting up a course schedule.
