A Beka Book curriculum is a thoroughly Christian, traditional program that emphasizes biblical character building through their rigorous preK-Grade 12 textbooks.
The academic integrity of A Beka Book has been validated by the success of hundreds of thousands of students over decades. Historically, students instructed under the curriculum consistently score above national averages on standardized tests and on college entrance tests. Our skilled researchers and writers do not paraphrase progressive education textbooks; they do primary research in every subject and look at the subject from the traditional Christian point of view.
While it is healthy to be informed by educational trends and performance data, it is not the practice of A Beka Book to adjust or change its curriculum to align with each new reform that is presented in academia. A Beka will continue their commitment to seek content and best practices that provide students with the tools they need for both academic and personal success.
A Beka Book has collaborated with teachers and administrators for four decades, working year after year to improve the curriculum and lesson plans that help our teachers teach everyone from preschoolers to 12th graders. The result is a curriculum that is as practical and comprehensive for first-year teachers as it is for seasoned veterans who use it year after year. The curriculum has structure when you need it, as well as the freedom to bring teachers expression of creativity to the classroom. A Beka textbooks and support materials empower our teachers, no matter their level of experience, to focus on their students, with extra challenges for those who learn quickly and special helps for those who struggle.
