English Writing and Literature

“This course improved my writing tremendously. The material took my writing from average to above average. The class is certainly difficult but worth it.”

Art

“This class is INCREDIBLE!! It really builds and expands upon the material learned in Art 1 Drawing 1. I went from being an average artist who didn’t know much about how to make my art more accurate to becoming more and more of the artist God created me to be, sharing His Hope through each piece I do. I learned how to creatively weave God’s Word into my art pieces without being cliche or stereotypical so that I can bring a fresh perspective to the table. I also learned a ton more about values, development, and where accuracy comes from–MEASURING 😉 I had nothing but a blast in this class!”

Global Languages

“This class was such a great experience! The teacher is so amazing and so patient with her students. The class itself had a fairly slow pace, and the homework assigned each week was easy to keep up with. I would recommend this course to anyone who is just starting out with French and is looking for a fun and creative way to start.”

Science

“I left TPS Biology with not only an increased understanding of God’s creation, but also with the application skills required to understand challenging bioethical topics such as altering DNA. Academically grounded arguments for creation and biblical thinking are stronger than in any science curriculum I have ever used. Thanks to this in-depth course, I now have a deep passion for biology’s complexity.”

TPS

“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.”

Math

“Where to start? This is probably the most fun I’ve had during math — not particularly because I like math, but the teacher explains everything very thoroughly and everything clicked this year. Couldn’t recommend more.”

Student

“Before taking this class, really studying effectively was a complete mystery to me. I was a good student and always received good grades, but I just plowed through the information without anything really sticking in my head for more than a few weeks. My parents enrolled me in Study Skills the summer before my freshman year of high school, and after the first week, my study habits were completely changed — for the better! After the course ended, I could take notes using various methods, read actively to understand, and retain what I had learned. There is no way I can describe how much this course benefited me or how much I enjoyed it. The textbook was informative, helpful, and readable, the teacher was totally engaging and always ready to answer questions, and all the information I learned will serve me well for the rest of my life! Thank you TPS!”

English Writing and Literature

“This class showed me that children’s literature isn’t just fiction, but you can find many important themes and ideas in children’s books. Most people tend to overlook the power of children’s literature, but by taking this class I have learned lessons that have deeper meanings when analyzed carefully.”

Elementary, English Writing and Literature

“I would highly recommend this course for reading. Both the teacher and the books read were superb for this class. Breakout rooms were often used, allowing students to both learn to work with a partner and have fun doing it. My personal favorite class this year.”

“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.”
