Teaching Students so that Students Learn Science

Top students tend to learn a lot of science content, but are often weak on integrating
that content with other areas such as epistemology, history and Christian faith. Mid-level students are often in an even worse position, manifesting the same weaknesses as those with strong academic performance, but lacking anything like mastery of science content. These statements are true of American education in general. Classical Christian educators, who generally emphasize the humanities, have an opportunity to realize their mission in the area of science education as well. By basing the science programming and curriculum on the three core principles of Mastery, Integration, and Kingdom Perspective, we can graduate students—at every level of academic performance—who have genuinely learned science.
