Adventures in Abkea Books

As we welcome our eagles back to the nest at South Hills Academy, they are going to see some new books in their classrooms. South Hills Academy will be implementing books and lessons from the Abeka curriculum in our K-8th grade classrooms this school year.

So, your first question is probably “What’s Abkea?” Let us save you a trip down the Google rabbit hole. Abeka is a Christian based curriculum that has been used by private Christian academies across the United States since it was founded in 1972.

Their philosophy doesn’t come from what sounds good or from what other people are doing right now. Instead, Abeka’s character-building philosophy comes from a biblical foundation—Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go.”

Every subject is approached from a Christian perspective, and you’ll find Scripture and biblical principles used to emphasize or illustrate concepts.

The faculty and staff are looking forward to implementing these new and engaging lessons in our classrooms and can’t wait to guide our students through all the new concepts and ideas they will learn during the 2021-2022 school year!
