Core curriculum provides students with academics, skill building, reading practice, character and wisdom training, and knowledge of God and His Word. This complete package begins with reading development and progresses through high school, giving students a solid foundation for pursuing their life goals.
Students who are more skilled may progress at a faster rate or may accelerate in the areas of their academic strengths. Slower students are encouraged to do their best but are able to work at their levels of proficiency and proceed as they are capable.
Each core subject consists of 12 PACEs (Packet of Accelerated Christian Education) per level. Typical students work daily on one PACE in each subject and may be performing at varying levels. The diagnostic test results help to identify academic weaknesses and prescribe a path to help students catch up. Most students complete at least 70 PACEs per year, while maintaining academic balance by completing about the same number of PACEs in each assigned subject.

Inside the classroom：
Generally speaking, a classroom has two teachers (two teachers are responsible for different aspects of tutoring). Each student has his/her own private desk, and there are two partitions on both sides of the desk, so that it cannot interfere with other students. There are generally two flags on the desk: one is the national flag, responsible for life issues. For example, if you want to drink water, go to the toilet, change your homework, etc., you need to leave your seat and you need to raise this flag. The teacher in charge of the flag can leave the seat after permission. The other flag is the Christian flag, which is used to solve academic problems. For example: not 2+2=? , Then after raising this flag, another teacher in charge of this flag will come to help.
Target (Goal) setting：
Every student must fill in the goal card every week. Set goals at your own pace every day and complete them. When finishing an assignment, cross out today’s goal and set the goal for the next day. In the student's goal setting process, if there is a situation where the goal setting is inappropriate (too many, unable to complete; or too few, slow learning progress, etc.), teachers will suggest to assist in modifying the goal to a more appropriate goal.
