“This class has not only provided me with a better understanding of ancient history, but has broadened my way of thinking and of viewing the world through a fun and interesting process. I would recommend this class to others because it not only captures the beauty of this history, but also gives us an understanding of life in that time period.”

Emma W (student – Ancient History)

“My older sister took Bible Survey last year and was always raving about it to me, telling me how much she was learning and what a fabulous teacher she had. Because of her positive experience with it, my mom signed me up for the class. I can honestly say it has changed my life. The textbook used for this class offers interesting and easy-to-understand information about the Bible, and the teacher’s instruction makes Scripture come alive in an interesting and personal way. One of my favorite things about the class is how we don’t just learn about the Bible, we learn how it applies to us and how we can use what we learn to glorify God, love others, and become more mature in Christ.”

Sarah M (student – Bible Survey)

“This class was so much fun! Even though it was challenging at points, it barely felt like school. There were so many resources for helping me do better, from the actual class time, to more videos, to the teacher giving me advice through email, to the class mates giving me suggestions and ideas. Throughout the year we learned to understand design and its elements, build things out of our imagination, and work out design problems. If you like to design, draw, do any type of art, figure out problems, or work with computers, this class is for you!”

Dalyah G (student – Adobe Illustrator)

“There are so many things I could say to influence others to take this class. This course really focuses on strengthening the foundations and thoughts of its students. In the English section, I got to read so many interesting short stories, poems, and essays and discuss their meanings and themes with my fellow classmates. In History, I received objective lessons on historical events and movements. I even got to discuss and debate my own ideas on subjects like Globalization, Marxism, Imperialism, and much more. In the Art History section, I got to learn about different cultures and their ideas through their art. I got to see different ways of looking at history or topics just through different pieces of art. All of the teachers are well educated in their studies, friendly and loving to their students, and focus on teaching their students how to think and discuss. This class has brought me much joy, and I hope that you strongly consider taking it.”

Daniel W (student – Belhaven High Scholars)

“Spanish was my favorite class this year. I learned more in this class than my two years of Rosetta Stone and another online class combined! Class sessions were filled with fun speaking activities, role-plays, games, and helpful explanations and review of difficult concepts. The teacher was always willing to answer questions and explain concepts we didn’t fully understand. The Spanish history listening activities helped me to understand the history and background of Hispanic culture all over the world. The Bible listening activities helped me to learn Spanish not only as a school subject, but also as a path to understanding more of the Bible through a different cultural perspective. I’m looking forward to my next TPS Spanish course!”

Keziah S (student – Spanish)

“I am so grateful that TPS was an option for my family! Because of its flexibility, I am able to spend a lot of time with my baby sister. She was born the week my brother started school, three weeks before I started school! I have two brothers already, and I really wanted a sister. It has been significant to me and to my family that I can be involved in her life while also pursuing my academic progress. I have needed to adapt to the changes in schooling and in our home, such as by learning to create task lists and use a schedule for completing my work outside of the live TPS class sessions.”

Christina S (student)

“This course really helped me to build the foundations for art. Even though I was not new to art, there were lots of techniques that I did not know. The lessons were thorough and the assignments that were provided allowed me to try different mediums which allowed me to see what mediums and techniques suited me best.”

Isabel C (student – Art)

“I thought this course would be extremely difficult, but it was easy to follow and the teacher gave great feedback. Classes were lots of fun and didn’t feel like work. And my knowledge of World History has greatly improved!”

Alan J (student – AP World History)

“I started TPS taking Algebra. Before taking the class, math was hard and stressful for me. I hated it! This year, finishing Algebra, I have realized that I have come to understand math. TPS teachers were supportive and willing to help me.”

Geneva M (student – Algebra)

“Enthusiastic teacher who clearly loves his subject. Class is rigorous, as any AP class is, but carefully planned out according to the text material.”

Matthias H (student – AP Biology)

“I would wholeheartedly recommend TPS English 1. My writing has improved tremendously because of this course. I do not fear writing anymore, and I feel more comfortable when I sit down to write. The teachers for this course are absolutely awesome. They took the time go over the material in detail and to encourage me. TPS English 1 is a great course for anyone struggling and uncomfortable with writing, as well as those who just need to polish their skills.”

Michael G (student – English 1)

“We are grateful for TPS and the opportunities they provided for our daughter. She was able to join several service trips and be a part of the clay magazine. She made some dear friends along the way. All of her teachers were passionate and knowledgeable about the subjects they taught, and they were all kind and caring to their students. We appreciate how much care, attention, understanding, motivation and constructive feedback they provided to our daughter.”

Lidie G (parent)

“A China parent, I strongly believe that TPS is the best choice for my girl since my son (now he is now studying in his second year in the US college) got the benefit from TPS a few years ago.”

Helen C (parent)

“This class is interesting and informative. What I really appreciated about this class is the focus on not only astronomy but also on apologetics. It is taught from a Christian worldview.”

Katherynn P (student – Astronomy)

“I started TPS in 7th grade, taking English 1 and Latin. After that year I began taking nearly all my classes from TPS, through my high school graduation, from English 1 through Advanced Composition, Literature, and Poetry, to math, where I did Algebra 1 through AP calculus, to an awesome four years of French, and several electives ranging from Web Design to Study Skills to Theology. I loved my time with TPS. I’m now graduating from Grace College with my B.S. in Life Sciences & Education, and I’ll also receive my teaching license for secondary science. TPS prepared me for nearly everything I encountered in college, and I wouldn’t be the teacher I already am without the influence and encouragement and investment of my TPS instructors. I’m so grateful to be able to pass on to my own students what my TPS instructors gave to me: a love for learning and a hope for future achievements.”

Emily A (alumnus)

“This course was awesome. I came into the course knowing too little about U.S. Government, and I left it feeling like my knowledge on the subject had increased 100-fold. The teacher does an excellent job teaching the material, and makes class time enjoyable. If you’re not afraid of hard work and want an awesome overview of American Government and Politics, then I highly recommend this course!”

Zaid A (student – AP U.S. Government and Politics)

“We had a lot of raised voices and constant nagging for our older kids to do their math. We have dragged out the math year through many summers. We have switched math curricula more than we have children! Then our fourth student took math through TPS this year and lo and behold, she LOVES math! We are definitely continuing with math through TPS!”

Sue W (parent)

“In TPS Geometry I learned so much, and my teacher made it easy to understand. I needed to start to get ready for college, and I’m achieving my goals with TPS…”

Lizzy M (student – Geometry)

“I never thought this class would teach me so much about the way the world is working today. In a practical way, economics has helped me put more thought into decisions involving my spending and jobs. The government portion, on the other hand, has done very well at laying out the function of our government for me. However, I mostly enjoyed this class because of the discussions of present day events, as we talked about the best ways they should be handled. All in all, it has been very insightful and fun.”

Reilly K (student – U.S. Government (Civics) and Economics)

“Great course and great teacher! There are multiple opportunities to do projects, experiments, and even lab reports throughout the school year. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn about motion, electricity, atoms, weather, and many other wonderful things God has given us!”

Caleb N (student – Physical Science)

“Not a course typically seen for high schoolers. Very interesting studies on the Constitution and its laws, and challenges the student to analyze cases differently by writing legal briefs.”

Melissa B (student – Constitutional Law)

“This has been an informative, useful, and enthralling course to invest myself in this year. This Latin course not only helps you to become familiar with grammar and vocabulary, but also to have a clearer understanding of English, French, and many other languages that originated from Latin. If you are someone who has any interest in learning more of this beautiful ancient language, this is a perfect course for you!”

Maia G (student – Latin)

“I really cannot praise BHS highly enough. The teachers are fun, engaging, knowledgeable, and passionate about what they teach. I never knew I could learn so much while still having fun. With this class meeting four days a week, there is more of an opportunity to grow closer as a class, and I am so grateful for the friends I have made. Rather than studying different eras of history as compartmentalized sections of time, I have learned how all of history interconnects, giving me a much fuller understanding of the world of the past. Although this course is a challenge and a large time commitment, it has transformed my writing and helped me reach academic heights that I never knew I could.”

Carolyn Y (student – Belhaven High Scholars)

“Our students have taken TPS English and Math (and more) starting at elementary age. We love the rigor of the courses and the biblical worldview. We have seen fabulous SAT Reading/Writing test scores (750 out of 800, in grade 8) and Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test (800 out of 800!). We plan for our youngest to start TPS English and Math as soon as he is old enough.”

Kim H (parent)

“If you want your students to learn how to write, don’t bother with other online schools — just send them to TPS.”
