Core Knowledge

Lubbock Christian School uses the Core Knowledge curriculum. The Core Knowledge Sequence provides a clear body of lasting knowledge that should form the core of a preschool through 8th grade curriculum.   The idea behind the design is that knowledge builds on knowledge.    Core Knowledge provides learning that is coherent, cumulative, and content-specific in order to build a strong foundation of knowledge in students, grade by grade.  The sequential building of knowledge – building on what the child has already learned – helps ensure that children enter each new grade ready – prepared and eager – to learn.

Saxon Math

Saxon Math is one of the nation's most thoroughly researched core mathematics programs for grades K–12.  The success of the Saxon curriculum can be attributed to the programs distinct, effective, and research-based pedagogy, which helps students develop a deeper understanding of concepts and how to apply them. Saxon's innovative, instructional approach breaks complex concepts into simpler increments, recognizing that smaller pieces of information are easier to teach and easier to learn. The instruction, practice, and assessment of those increments are systematically distributed across a grade level. The distributed approach ensures that students gain and retain critical thinking concepts and use them in real-world situations.

Shurley English and Accelerated Reading

The Shurley English curriculum is designed to help students master the fundamental concepts of language arts such as vocabulary, mechanics, usage, editing, and sentence work.  This is achieved by giving specific techniques that teach not only the concept, but also the entire thought process necessary to apply the concept.  Shurley English helps promote skills such as comprehension, application, retention, and critical-thinking and provides the fundamental foundation for student success.
