Part Seven: DISCLAIMER
Part One: WHY BEEHIVE?
Because there was and is a need. LDS parents are looking for a safe,
academically solid, and religiously uplifting place to school their students.
As parents looking for such a place, we found none and so created one. The
final result is Beehive Schools.com, Beehive LDS Schooling, LLC., and the
Beehive Online Curriculum. For fourteen years, 1997-2011, we ran a private LDS
school in St.George, Utah. Because of the success* students achieved there, we
now share our curriculum and methods online.
Part Two: OUR DEFINITION of SUCCESS*
OUR DEFINITION of SUCCESS consists of four parts:
- Academic Excellence - Developing a thorough understanding of
Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Sciences (History, Geography, Government
and Economics), Sciences, selected Life Skills (Health & Fitness, Finances,
Family Studies, etc.), and Fine Arts (Art, Music, Dance and Theater).
- Life Skills Acquisition - Learning all those basic skills for a
successful life. See Life Skills section of the Curriculum Page.
- Fine Arts Appreciation and Development Appreciation of art work in
its various forms and media; dance; theater; and especially music - skill
development in the latter being required of all students.
- Spiritual Understanding and Development - Acquiring a vast knowledge
of the scriptures, church history and doctrine, plus developing a firm,
unshakeable testimony of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost,
putting them and their priorities at the center of our lives. In short,
keeping the commandments and learning to live a God-centered and God-directed
Part Three - WHAT IS the CURRICULUM?
- At present it is a lesson bank of tens of 1,000s of PDF lessons
which cover 7 subjects from Preschool through Honors High School.
Planning has begun to eventually augment the pdfs with video presentations via
our own Youtube channel.
- It is also a guide to breakthrough learning techniques that can lead
to an accelerated education, if the parent and/or student choose
to use it in such a manner. Some families that have used the techniques
presented here have had children learn to read as early as age two; graduate
high school at ages 10 through 14; and go on to earn multiple degrees and
develop a multiplicity of talents. However, most families just use the techniques
to help their children become well-rounded and disciplined learners.
(DISCLAIMER: We at Beehive did not invent or discover all the techniques that
we use and teach. For the most part, we found them through research as we
looked for ways to help individuals who came to us and were struggling
- In addition, the curriculum contains lessons and subject matter not normally
presented by public or other private institutions, namely, emphasis on spiritual
character and understanding. As such it sparks the mind, heart, and motivation
of your student to develop a Christlike character, a solid foundation of
spiritual knowledge and understanding, and a strong testimony. It also
encourages your student to find and develop his interests, talents, and
abilities, and to discover his missions in life.
- In summary: The Beehive Curriculum is a vehicle which helps the student
reach his full potential.
Part Four: HOW the BEEHIVE PROGRAM WORKS:
Studying It Out
- Read the full Beehive site.
- Pray about whether or not this is the curriculum for your student or
- If it is right for you, sign-up through the portal on the curriculum
- Begin with Parent Orientation. There are six parts. Read through each
one in order, writing down in a note book those techniques you feel inspired to implement with your
- Additional information to help you set-up your home school and have a
successful experience is given under the Teacher Education portion of the
curriculum. These lectures are NOT essential to starting in the curriculum,
but they are of great worth.
- Read through the Student Orientation course. This is to be used
with ALL your students whether 3 or 18. This course does NOT take much time
but is very worthwhile as it teaches those special learning techniques mentioned
above. Student Orientation is taught at the beginning of a student's career
at BEEHIVE and is in addition to the regular courses.
- You begin your Beehive experience as per instructions given in Parent
Orientation class 5 and 6, ALWAYS starting your day with the Daily Devotional of
at least a song and prayer.
- This is followed by work in LIFE SKILLS B, beginning the routine of
physical and mental brain-enhancing exercises.
- Then you begin the regular work for the day at the place your student is
in the curriculum. REMEMBER: THIS IS AN INDIVIDUALIZED CURRICULUM. Each
student is allowed to work on a skill or concept for as long as it takes him
to master it - whether that be a minute or a month! This means that each
student will be at a different place in each subject and THAT'S OK. It's the
way it SHOULD be.
- You keep records as given in Parent Orientation 6.
At the end of each Unit or Course, you follow instructions given there
for your student to receive a CERTIFCATE of ACHIEVEMENT - embedded
within each course, or a CERTIFICATE of COMPLETION - presented by Beehive.
The CERTIFICATES of COMPLETION list the objectives of the courses and are
records of your student's accomplishments.
