3rd - 8th Grade


Students in 3rd - 8th grade begin our INVESTIGATE cycle with Exploring Countries and Cultures. Like all of our Investigate packages, this provides a full year of Bible, geography, history, literature, science, music appreciation, and art activities for a range of ages. Once the year is completed, all 3rd - 8th grade children move to the next INVESTIGATE package and continue learning together.

Teaching Multiple
Children at Once

  • Compact Schedule
  • Thorough Bible Integration
  • Unites the Family
  • Hands-On Activities
  • Kids Learn from Each Other
  • Global Focus

Our Teacher's Manuals explain what level of content should be taught to each child. A 7th grader, for example, completes assignments more thoroughly than a 3rd grader while using many of the same resources. This keeps the family together when possible and assures that the parent is only teaching one complete INVESTIGATE curriculum each year.
