Our Curriculum for 3rd Grade through 12th - Ignitia
Ignitia is a web-based program featuring 3-D animation and cutting edge multimedia. Students finish lessons by completing various questions, activities, and quizzes. Most of the grading is automatic so teachers only have to grade subjective questions. Teachers and students can leave messages for one another and teachers may find their work cut in half with the record keeping and lesson planning features. SOS offers much flexibility so that you can customize learning to fit students’ educational needs. Students are guided through the lessons at their own pace, giving them the chance to master concepts before moving on to more challenging lessons. There are approximately 130 lessons per subject. Five core subjects — Bible, Language Arts, Math, History & Geography, and Science — are available for grades 3-12. A great number of electives are also available such as Health, Spanish, and Consumer Math and much more.
Ignitia uses a variety of teaching methods to explain concepts, provide practical application, and evaluate student performance. Advanced activities include:

"Ignitia" curriculum can be supplemented with "Lifepac"
With LIFEPAC students work in full-color worktext books, combining exercises, projects, review, and tests. LIFEPAC is similar to SOS in that a student must truly master the context and skills of one unit before progressing on to the next. LIFEPAC combines the Bible and the academic, providing the opportunity for students to evaluate their lessons from a Christian perspective. An award-winning curriculum, LIFEPAC has been developed to provide the best learning experiences for each student through personalized instruction and self-pacing. Both SOS and LIFEPAC are stand-alone programs and can be purchased individually. However, materials for both LIFEPAC and SOS can be mixed and matched or used together. Each LIFEPAC subject comes in ten small workbooks. One workbook takes approximately three to four weeks to complete. LIFEPAC is available for grades K-12 in five core subjects — Bible, Language Arts, Math, History & Geography, and Science. Electives are also available such as Accounting, American Literature, and Art.
