Information about our Secondary Program
For the Kingdom has an incredible and dynamic secondary program. Our program is an academic program that provides daily work for students at home with a fun and engaging class time on Mondays. Each class is designed to be a full course for your students for the year. Junior High students will average 45 minutes of work each day and High School students will spend an average of 45 minutes-1 hour each day on assignments. Our classes are offered a la carte and students are welcome to take any amount of classes they are interested in.
Students and families will utilize an online learning management system called Google Classroom. Using this tool teachers, students, and parents can easily communicate, get assignments, submit work and participate in discussions throughout the week. Core classes will meet online through Google Classroom to continue class discussion, learning and to facilitate completion of homework once each week. Each secondary student will be required to have a Google account that will allow them to be added to each of their classes.
Weekly Assignment Sheets
We also have a great tool that students utilize every week and parents LOVE! We call these Weekly Assignment Sheets (WAS). This is the go-to place for students and parents to see what their students are assigned to do each day. We love that parents can use this sheet to be involved in what their students are doing. On our Weekly Assignment Sheets there are places for parents to track grades and…HOURS! Yay! Each week students will complete the work assigned by their teacher at home. We ask that parents check and edit homework as needed and sign this WAS to verify that their student completed the homework.
Each class period teachers will check off to see that parents did sign the sheet and students did do the work assigned. Completing the work is required and students and parents are accountable to this. We will implement a 3 strike policy for incomplete homework. Our teachers and administration will work with each student and their parents to find a workable solution to help the student finish their homework on time each week.
How do we pick the classes we offer?
Our course offerings work on a cycle system. What you see this year is not the same as what you will see next year…but don’t worry….the core classes and many of the electives will be back around the year after! We have worked tirelessly to provide classes that students need and want. Each year your student will be able to take classes that are necessary for graduation and a wide variety of elective classes for fun.
*Please note that this school year your student will have one study hall hour. Any additional on-campus non-class hours will be considered service hours.
