11th Grade
Overview
In their junior year of high school, our students expand their knowledge as they are taught advanced concepts across all core classes by refining and building on previously studied skills as they plan for what comes after high school.  Besides the required core subjects, our juniors focus on refining time management, prioritization, and independent study skills to help prepare them for life beyond high school- whether that means college, military, vocational school, or employment.
 
Bible 
Juniors utilize the Inner Man curriculum provided by Positive Action to focus on key passages of Scripture and biblical case studies to develop spiritual and leadership acumen. Students are encouraged to review, think about, and apply the truths learned throughout the year.
 
English
In eleventh grade, student focus heavily on successfully completing multiple academic papers, as well as focusing on test preparation and test-taking strategies for the SAT and ACT tests.  They also utilize our OCA database to sharpen research and library skills.
 
Math
Juniors in Algebra II further develop reasoning skills through advanced algebra concepts such as quadratic equations, polynomials, complex numbers, logarithms, and trigonometry; they also will solve and graph algebraic functions.  Our eleventh graders that take Intermediate algebra concentrate on operations with real numbers, graphs of functions, domain and range of functions, linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations with an  emphasis on problem-solving. 
 
Chemistry 
Through the study of chemistry, juniors will learn through matter and energy how many everyday events relate to chemistry. They will study the impact of chemistry on the world around us through hands-on experiments. 
 
United States History
Our eleventh graders learn about the development of the United States through the Bob Jones curriculum beginning with the formation of the nation through present day events.  Students will develop critical thinking skills as they use the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about issues faced by local, state, and federal governments.
