At ACA, we use the Abeka curriculum for our K4 through 8th graders. The Abeka Book approach to education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable. The materials reflect sensible theory that is firmly anchored to practicality.
Abeka uses phonics as the most logical, orderly way to introduce reading to children. Stories are carefully selected for interest, readability, theme, and values, with questions throughout to guide students in comprehension of reading material and in application of valuable principles to their lives.
Abeka history texts reject the Marxist/Hegelian conflict theory of history in favor of a truthful portrayal of peoples, lands, religions, ideals, heroes, triumphs, and setbacks. The result is positive, uplifting history texts that give students an historical perspective and instill within them an intelligent pride for their own country and a desire to help it back to its traditional values. Government is portrayed as ordained by God for the maintenance of law and order, not as a cure-all for humanity's problems. Abeka offers a traditional, conservative approach to the study of what man has done with the time he has been given.
Abeka Book 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.
Abeka Science and Health presents the universe as the direct creation of God and refutes the man-made idea of evolution. Further, the books present God as the Great Designer and Lawgiver, without Whom the evident design and laws of nature would be inexplicable.
Thought and language are foundational to acquiring and transmitting knowledge. Therefore, the teaching of grammar, spelling, vocabulary, composition, and literature in education is of particular importance. Abeka grammar books emphasize structure, rules, analysis, and the kind of practice that aims at mastery.
The curriculum is designed to be specifically and systematically taught so that students in the Bible Program will become thoroughly acquainted with the basic portions of Scriptures.
