Bible Curriculum

Building on the Rock
 
Building on the Rock is the first fully integrated worldview and Bible survey course for elementary school students. This unique curriculum is designed to help younger students begin to formulate and relate learned Bible facts with a genuine Christian worldview, while laying the groundwork for later comparative worldview studies.
 
Building on the Rock is designed to help students interpret knowledge and build foundational beliefs and values from a Christian perspective. In an age of competing worldviews, this curriculum will help young students formulate a biblical perspective of the world so that they will reflect the Scriptures both in their thoughts and in their actions.
 
There are six sections of study designed in a spiral sequence that effectively integrates both worldview and biblical content. Each grade level concentrates on one of the sections and either reviews or introduces the others. One incredible advantage of this design is that students who enter the curriculum at different grade levels can be easily included without having gone through the previous grades.
 
First Grade: Wisdom
Second Grade: Fellowship
Third Grade: Image-bearing
Fourth Grade: Servanthood
Fifth Grade: Stewardship
Sixth Grade: A World of Worldviews

Lightbearers
 
At Isaac Newton Christian Academy, we believe that our students need to understand that the truth of God’s word applies to all of life. They need to be able to discern truth from error, whether one day sitting in a secular high school or university classroom, or simply watching the evening news.
 
The theme for Grade 6 is entitled A World of Worldviews. It is a transition year between Building on the Rock, and Lightbearers. It introduces students to the essential components of all worldviews, laying the groundwork for Lightbearers and further comparative worldview studies.
 
Designed for 7th and 8th graders, Lightbearers systematically walks students through life’s “big questions,” comparing the Christian worldview to naturalism and transcendentalism. Students learn how to apply their Christian faith to every area of life: theology, philosophy, ethics, biology, sociology, psychology, law, politics, economics, and history. The course also includes a complete Bible survey of the Old and New Testaments. 
 
Lightbearers prepares Christian youth for the world in which they are living and trains them to recognize the false ideas of this world. Most of our graduates go on to area secular high schools and we feel strongly about preparing them for the humanistic ideas they will encounter and give them the materials they will need to stand strong in their Christian faith.
