The classes will be appropriate for mature youth through
adult. If there are enough homeschooled
youth (middle school and high school ages) interested in the course, we would
offer a second time for the course that is specifically geared towards them.
When will classes be held?
Class will begin meeting in September on Mondays at 7 PM and
will finish in May. A complete schedule
will be provided, as there will be Mondays that we take off (holidays, etc).
If there is an interest in the Homeschool version of this
class for middle school and high school students, it will likely be held on
Monday afternoons (time to be determined).
Where will classes be held?
We will meet at our school building, Truth Chapel Christian
Academy at 189 Hickory Hill Road in Spartanburg, SC. It is a one-room classroom set-up perfectly
for these Bible classes.
How much is the class?
Cost is $100 per person or $150 per couple (or two members
of the same family in the same house).
Further discounts may be given for families with more than two
interested students. The cost may be
paid upfront, or paid monthly over the period of 10 months. If the latter is chosen, there will be a $20
convenience fee added to the total cost (also payable monthly). Families who are faithful attendees of Truth
Chapel (attending at least once per week unless unable) will be given a 20%
discount on their total cost, before the convenience fee.
For those who are not seeking credit for their work and will
not be taking the tests/quizzes, the cost will be $50 per person, with
additional cuts for multiple family members and Truth Chapel discounts.
What materials will I need?
Students may want to bring note-taking devices and items (such
as laptops, tablets, notebooks, pens, etc.).
The class will be recorded, and can be viewed again later if a student
misses something and wants to go back later to catch up in their notes.
Everyone will also need an Expositor’s Study Bible (though
we have some at the school that can be used on-site) and may want to purchase
other recommended books. A recommended
book list will be provided.
What kind of credit do I receive for this class?
This is a non-accredited course that is just for the
advancement of your own personal knowledge.
However, there are a couple of options for some credit.
First, Homeschool students can easily count the course as
one of their Homeschool electives and receive the credit he/she would receive
for any Homeschool elective. There will
be tests, quizzes, and paper assignments which will all be graded and returned
to the parents, as well as a final course grade.
Adults will be given a certificate of completion of the
course. The certificate will specify
whether it was taken for credit (and includes completed and graded assignments)
or not-for-credit (no graded assignments).
It would be up to any organization whether to recognize your work in our
Bible class or not, since we are not accredited.
If we add more classes later, we may have various levels of
certificates to acknowledge the amount of work completed.
Can I take the class online?
Yes, you can! And you
can also participate live in our discussions.
We will be streaming the class online, and only giving access to paid
subscribers. While the class is
streaming, you will be able to see the teacher as well as any images or videos
shown, and you will be able to participate in any discussions.
You will have the same options as others (to complete the
assignments, or not).
If you miss the class while it is live, or want to go back
later to watch again, you will have the ability to do so as will our on-site
