Three Choices Offered
The A Beka Academy offers two DVD home school programs. Both A Beka DVD programs offer instruction by teachers and provide the books needed for the Christian curriculum, tests, and scoring. Parents lease the DVDs and must return them to A Beka at the completion of the homeschool program.
Program One of the A Beka Academy is available for students who wish to take college preparatory classes. A Beka evaluates the student's work, issues report cards, and saves all the student’s records. The program develops a curriculum that fills all college preparatory requirements for grades 9 through 12. The academy issues homeschooled students completing this curriculum a diploma, a transcript for college applications, and a graduation ceremony.
Program Two of the A Beka DVD program was developed for students age four through grade 12. This program involves more participation by parents than Program One. Parents keep all the student’s homeschool progress reports, grading systems, and lesson plans. A Beka does not give a diploma or transcript upon completion of Program Two.
Both of the DVD programs include instruction in Bible study, language arts, math, science, and history for grades 1 to 6. Courses included for grades 7 to 12 include Bible doctrine, English, world history, algebra, biology, chemistry, Spanish, Hebrew history, physical science, health, geography, physical education, U.S history, geometry, the Old Testament, American government, economics, and calculus, as well as electives in keyboarding, speech, home economics, and music.
The A Beka Academy's traditional homeschool program is for parents who wish to teach their children using the traditional textbook method. A Beka provides all the materials needed for a solid Christian curriculum including textbooks, worksheets, scoring keys, and tests. Parents provide A Beka with their child’s test scores and A Beka evaluates the work and provides a report card and transcript to the students.
