  • Part One: WHY BEEHIVE?

      As LDS parents looking for a safe, academically solid, and religiously uplifting place to school their students, we found none and so created one: Beehive LDS Schooling, LLC., also known as Beehive Academy and Prep School, founded 1997. Because of the success students achieved at Beehive, we now share our curriculum and methods online.

    Part Two: OUR DEFINITION of SUCCESS

    1. Spiritual Understanding and Development - Learning of the life, missions and teachings of Jesus Christ; studying the attributes of Christ and applying them in our lives; putting God FIRST in our lives by keeping the commandments and learning to live a God-centered and God-directed life.
    2. Academic Excellence - Developing a thorough understanding of Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Sciences (History, Geography, Government, Economics & Family Life), and the Sciences (Life, Earth & Space, Chemistry & Physic).
    3. Fine Arts Understanding & Development - Learning the rudiments of Art, Music and Theater sufficient to recognize and appreciate different forms and skills; plus developing one's talents and abilities in these areas, especially Music. ALL students are expected to learn to conduct music, to learn to sing, and to learn to play an instrument of their choosing.
    4. Mastering Selected Practical Arts - Gardening, Home Management & Repair, Financial Management, Career Preparation, Entrepreneurship and Preparedness.
    5. Achieving exceptional Physical Health and Fitness - Learning what works and what doesn't, the rules and laws of health and fitness, making healthy living a habit with and regularly engaging in proper forms of exercise to maintain fitness.

    Part Three - WHAT IS the CURRICULUM? - A Method of Individualized Education, specifically:

    1. A Lesson Bank of 1,000s of VIDEO & PDF lessons encompassing the above-mentioned subjects.
    2. Cutting-edge research and LDS subject matter not normally presented by public or other private institutions
    3. A guide to breakthrough learning techniques that make greater achievements possible.

    Part Four: WHAT the BEEHIVE CURRICULUM DOES:

      It sparks the mind, heart, and motivation of students to develop:
    1. a Christlike character
    2. a solid foundation of spiritual knowledge and understanding
    3. a strong foundation of academic, life skills & fine arts knowledge and understanding
    4. a strong testimony
    5. their interests, talents, and abilities
    6. and to discover their missions in life.
    7. In fine: The Beehive Curriculum is a vehicle which helps students reach their full potential.

    Part Five: HOW the BEEHIVE PROGRAM WORKS:

    1. First, we ask that the parent review the PARENT ORIENTATION CLASS which helps to Orient him or her to Beehive and alerts the parent to the supplies that will be needed.
    2. Each student then begins in the Pre-K Level in each subject. - WHY?
      1. It does not take an inordinate amount of time for older students to quickly catch-up to their working levels and there are overriding benefits:
        1. Beehive has an incremental curriculum, one that builds upon itself, and teaches certain ideas, facts, skills and concepts at earlier levels than normal.
        2. Also, the fundamentals of our learning strategies are taught in the beginning levels. Miss these and you miss what makes higher levels of achievement possible.
        3. In addition, in the early levels the foundation is laid for the heart of the curriculum - the spiritual learning. This makes all the difference.
        4. Finally, a good review never hurt anybody, and that is what happens when older students humble themselves and start in the Pre-K Level. All of us have what we call "potholes" in our education. By having older students review until they reach their working levels they:
          1. Fill-in and smooth-over those "potholes" that can cause trouble later,
          2. and
          3. They are assured of receiving the full benefits of the Beehive Curriculum.
        5. Each level is objective driven. When a student has mastered all the objectives of a Level, he may move on to the next level of that subject.
    3. Each Level is divided into units. Each unit covers one or more objectives. If the student is able to pass-off the objectives as evidenced by passing the unit assessment, he does NOT need to do the unit work and may progress to the next unit. Unit assessments appear either in the back of the PDF material or on video as indicated on the curriculum screen.
    4. To begin a unit, the parent or student first looks at the introduction to the unit at the beginning of the PDF. This lists objectives, materials, etc. Then he or she proceeds to either challenge the Assessment or do the work of the unit.
    5. As the student progresses in the Curriculum, the parent or teacher awards the Certificates of Achievement and Certificates of Completion. Certificates of Achievement are awarded for learning facts, skills, concepts, etc. within a Level. Certificates of Completion are awarded for completing a Level of a particular Subject.

    Part Six: WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP?

    1. Before signing-up, please read through the site and pray about whether or not this curriculum is a good fit for your student or students.
    2. If the answer is "YES", then sign-up through the curriculum portal on the curriculum page.
