What is A Beka Book?

A Beka Book, is unashamedly Christian and traditional in their approach to education.  The A Beka Book approach to Christian education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable.  A complete description of the A Beka Book curriculum is available online at  

Kindergarten Programs

The Kindergarten program is intended to provide a foundation in each area of development: mental, social, physical, and spiritual.  Kindergarten is a full-day program filled with learning activities in Bible, math and integrated reading.  Phonics and number sense are emphasized.  In addition, students will spend time in "learning stations", using a hands-on approach to enhance their educational experience and growth.  Children have art, library and music and physical education incorporated into their classrooms. 

Elementary (Grades 1-8)

The classroom program for grades 1-8 emphasizes biblical values and concepts in all subject areas.  Students will have classes in Bible, language arts, math, social studies, science, and technology.  There are separate physical education, art, and music classes.
