Did you know? We changed our curriculum, and it is phenomenal! The Bob Jones Press is not just scripture based—it is also academically sound. Our materials use hands-on-learning, creative problem solving, and other research-proven instructional strategies to motivate students to take an active role in learning and to master age-appropriate material. Our textbooks direct students to think for themselves. They are encouraged to use discernment and to consider their worldview in everyday situations. Our textbooks help students to develop skills in critical thinking with inductive teaching, hands-on-learning, and probing questions. Teachers use innovative ways to engage students in learning and technology enhancements are used daily in their classrooms and on the go.
