This grammar program is a comprehensive writing-focused program whose exercises utilize classical and Christian literature. The sentences draw on Biblical excerpts which feed the soul along with classical literature with which any college-bound student should be familiar. The content is thorough and medium-paced; however, homework may be adjusted to meet the needs of individual students.

This course uses a metaphorical kingdom to better relate grammar knowledge to students. King Verb and Queen Noun have quite a story to tell. Before they met, no one in the kingdom could write a sentence, a clause, or even a phrase! Poor writing was rampant. Sadly, Sir Run-Ons-A-Lot and the Knights of the Wrong Table had struck terror in the Kingdom of Writing. However, after a short engagement and a lovely wedding, the kingdom was saved by the new king, by his lovely queen and by the Knights of the Write Table. Join me as we discover the Kingdom of Writing through adventures in Grammar Castle.

The deposit purchases the consumable student textbook and handouts that will be distributed to you by the teacher. Needed supplies: a glue stick, a pencil, colored pencils, and 5 dividers.
