Kimber Curriculum                 (order now)

Kimber Curriculum combines gospel knowledge and secular scholarship into a perfect blend that helps students focus on the love of learning. Because of our strong belief in family unity, our curriculum is designed to be used with all ages grouped together at school or in the family setting.

Dr. Glenn Kimber and his wife Julianne have spent over 30 years developing curriculum that enables children not only to excel academically but also to come to know their Heavenly Father as never before. Why would you separate spiritual and secular knowledge when it all comes from the same source - our Father in Heaven?

Here is the breakdown of the Kimber Curriculum and the Intrinsic values which are;  Apply, Self-Govern, Search, Ponder, and Serve


LANGUAGE ARTS

 

(5 Volumes)

Intrinsic Value: Focusing on others through acts of service.

Language Arts is the art of communication. After students learn a Language Arts principle, they refer to the scriptures to see how the Lord used it. Then the students practice the principle by using it in an academic service project. Skills are developed as students discover ways to share with others what they have learned.

Students are taught that knowledge is only theirs if they learn to give it away. The more they share their knowledge, the more it is theirs. As students progress through their Language Arts studies, they will have the opportunity to perform over 160 academic service projects over a four-year period. After completing these service projects, students will have developed the talent of “learning how to lose oneself in academic service.”

SCIENCE

(6 Volumes)

Intrinsic Value: Researching the "How" and "Why" of God's magnificent creations.

The “HOW” question is answered as students research academic reference books from the library, encyclopedias, or Internet resources related to that subject.

The “WHY” question leads the students to study the scriptures of their choice to discover testimony-building answers from God’s revealed word. In this way, students develop the talent of “learning how to search the scriptures,” as well as using additional reference books to enlighten their understanding.

MATHEMATICS

(6 Volumes)

Intrinsic Value: Governing your own learning through principles of math.

The Kimber Academy math curriculum is principle-based. The students first read and memorize a principle, are shown an example of its use, and then they create and solve their own math problems. This allows students to progress at their own level.

Since our math curriculum covers over 300 specific principles, students will learn how to apply these principles correctly on their own. Students will slowly take charge of their ability to govern those principles” which will be of invaluable worth their entire lives.

HISTORY

(5 Volumes)

Intrinsic Value: Pondering the past, applying the present and understanding the prophecies of the future.

History is more than facts. History can be defined as a study of “God’'s dealings with mankind, and mankind'’s dealings with each other.” It is this concept that makes history important and sacred.

In the Kimber Academy history program students learn "“hook dates".” These are significant dates to which are attached specific people and events. The hook dates come alive with people and events. Each day students have the opportunity to recall the information they previously learned and then build upon that knowledge. This develops within the student the ability to mentally assemble vast quantities of information at any given time. Thus, allowing students to ponder over the subject and apply it's teachings.

”RELIGIOUS STUDIES

(4 Volumes)

Intrinsic Value: Applying scripture study and Christian values to our daily lives.                                                              
John 5:39 - Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

In 1 Nephi 19:23, Nephi tells us that he “did liken all scriptures unto [the Nephites], that it might be for [their] profit and learning.” The scriptures are of the most value to us as we learn and apply their teachings into our daily lives. The Book of Mormon was written with this in mind. The Prophet Mormon and his son Moroni, like Isaiah, saw our day, and in vision experienced the events that are happening to us now. (Mormon 3:17-20; 8:34-35) Therefore, they (all the ancient prophets) included answers in the Book of Mormon and Bible to help us deal with the challenges of our day.

Like our other histories, the Book of Mormon and New Testament curriculum also use “hook Dates.” Students are taught the book as history and holy scripture. They also learn to how to apply the stories and doctrines of the Book of Mormon into their daily lives.
