What types of teaching materials are used in your program?

Our preference is to use materials that are consistent with our Biblical philosophy. When such materials are not available, we then carefully screen and incorporate secular materials into our program. In the event appropriate materials are unavailable, our staff creates their own materials to teach and reinforce the concepts being taught.
