Solidifying Knowledge and Preparing for High School

Our 8th Grade curriculum begins to bring together the necessary tools and topics to fully equip your child for success in high school and all endeavors proceeding graduation. Students will study narrative poetry and prose that correspond to our American History program. Through literature, textbooks, atlas, and geography workbooks, your child is immersed in the country’s intellectual, physical, and political identities.

Two different math options are available with our 8th Grade curriculum: 1) Calvert Math, a traditional math program where students begin pre-algebra, scientific notation, constructions, angles, irrational numbers, and data and statistics. or 2) Math in Focus, a new, modernized math approach where students understand and use exponents and their properties, use systems of equations to solve real-world problems, identify relations and functions, and solve problems involving proportional reasoning and similar figures.

At this stage in our curriculum, your child’s vocabulary and grammar skills are intertwined, and reading comprehension is built through poetry reading, speeches, sonnets, plays, and award-winning novels. Physical, life and earth sciences such as electricity, magnetism, genetics, space, topography, and erosion are covered in the science section of our curriculum. Finally, students further develop their technology skills in desktop publishing, presentation creation, spreadsheets, and HTML.

Our comprehensive 8th grade homeschool program includes everything you need to successfully educate your child at home: print textbooks, workbooks, reading books, maps, science and math kits, activity pages, tests, and more!
