7. CURRICULUM AND TEXTBOOKS
Puerto Rico Christian School uses a variety of textbooks in our curriculum. Our curriculum is a Christ-centered program which sets high academic standards for our students.
Whenever practical, Christian textbooks are used at PRCS. The A Beka series is used in science classes when possible. In other subjects our textbooks come from Houghton Mifflin, Silver Burdett & Ginn, Prentice Hall, and other publishers.
Daily Bible classes utilize the Bible
as the main textbook, and include considerable memorization of scripture passages.
Some grades may also use workbooks or supplementary texts. The Bible or Biblical principles are integrated into every academic area.
