Does this school use the "Abeka Curriculum"? I hope and pray that you do. We have homeschool are daughter since preschool. She is going into the eight grade this up coming school year, and we are ready introduce her to a private school with moral and principles with structure from the holy bible. But you must have the Abeka Curriculum. Thank you for taking the time to replied. Great Day Mrs. Proctor
