K-12 Christian School in Janesville, Wisconsin

Here at Oakhill we use both Abeka and Bob Jones curriculum.

Both the Abeka and Bob Jones curriculum empowers our educators to shape each subject according to the lens of scripture. It also allows for each subject area to take on a new meaning when we can incorporate and apply biblical themes. The educational materials received are also academically sound. It uses hands-on learning, creative problem solving and other research-proven instructional strategies to motivate students to take an active role in their learning. The mission Bob Jones Curriculum is “To produce Christian educational materials with academic excellence from a biblical worldview.” This mission aligns well with Oakhill’s mission of, “Academic Excellence Centered on Christ.” 

We feel very blessed to be able to use a curriculum that is centered on Christ.
