Curriculum

St. Paul's Preparatory Academy primarily uses the A Beka Book Curriculum, a curriculum based on sound scholarship; a rational, common sense approach to learning; and Scriptural principles that are designed to provide students in grades K3-12 with a high-quality, college-preparatory education. This curriculum also provides both faculty and students with a Christian approach to life and learning, while ensuring that students will be taught new materials at each grade level along with a sufficient review of the previous year's materials. As a result, students can progress steadily from year to year within our proactive educational environment, one that fosters individual student development.

Alongside the A Beka Book Curriculum, our high school teachers also teach college preparatory classes with a classical educational emphasis. These classes ensure that students develop the necessary skills and knowledge for academic success at the college level and beyond.
