  • Lower Academy : classes for students in grades 3-6.
  • Upper Academy : classes for students in grades 7-12.
  • Upper & Lower Academy : classes for students in grades 3-12.

However, home school classes can be available to students outside these ranges based on your assessment of his or her readiness and skill aptitude for a class.

Biblical Application to Life Management Skills (BALM)

Biblical Application to Life Management Skills (BALM) Image

Our students are well trained academically. But there are many additional challenges for which they need to be prepared. We can’t tackle these challenges for them, but like a good coach, our goal is to train and prepare them to excel on their own. In order to do their best as unto the Lord in every aspect of their lives, our students will need to know how to apply Scripture to every situation, every day. They will need to be able to think clearly and with discernment, to work through issues logically, to respond effectively and appropriately, and to make sound, Biblical decisions based on accurate observations and conclusions. They will also need to be prepared for typical life management tasks. This class includes opportunities for interaction online! All students registered for 2016-2017 classes with Gail Efting will have the opportunity to benefit from online videos and other presentations, commentary, and discussions, as well as feedback, accountability, and recordkeeping online. Instructions for accessing online coursework and records will be made available to students upon confirmation of registration and student email.

Biblical Application to Life Management (BALM) is simply applying Biblical principles to real life situations. This course will give students the tools they need to think Biblically as they build useful skills related to the many practical, every-day life issues they will face as adults. It will encourage them to develop their critical thinking skills and teach them effective, Scripturally based strategies for Life Management.

Every class session will focus on a different aspect of Biblical Life Management skills. Socratic and Pauline discussion, practice in Logic and Rhetoric, interactive and generative activities, experiential learning, and written reflection and analysis will provide the students with opportunities to absorb, process and use the material presented. After each topic is covered, students will be required to submit written and/or verbal feedback. Additionally, projects will be assigned every class session, for completion before the next class.

Course Length: One Semester

Grades: 2-4 only

Materials Fee: $30, one time only

Minimum & Maximum Class Size: 8 Maximum

Students will meet every other week to experience team work and cooperative learning through hands on projects and games.

Students will work in partners to plan projects of their choice such as soap making, cooking, baking, creating their own board games,  etc. Students may choose to set up a stand and sell their items on Fridays and decide where to donate proceeds.

Students will also participate in games that require cooperative learning, teamwork and reflections such as games from TRIBES, the Incredible Indoors Games book and the Incredible Outdoor Games book.

Students will also participate in interactive read alouds that explore themes such as friendship, cooperation, flexibility, problem solving.

The emphasis of this class is on students developing their self esteem and social skills through cooperative projects, games and interactive read alouds.

This hands on class will consist of fun and short energizers, mini lessons focusing on how to work in teams and practical application of the mini lesson followed by a closing circle of what went well and what adjustments can be made for next time. The emphasis is on the process of learning, not the product and on developing a growth mindset- that problems we come across in our projects are opportunities for growth.

Students will be asked to reflect on what went well and what adjustments need to be made via video reflection, scrapbooking, photo journaling, etc. At the end of the course, students who wish to may choose to present their reflections to the larger group.
