Bible Courses

The goal of the Bible courses is to challenge the students in their daily walk with the Lord.  The objective of the classes will be to formulate a better understanding of the Lord Jesus Christ by memorizing God’s Word, understanding God’s work, and applying God’s Word through active involvement in church and community activities.

Coulee Christian School uses The Engaged Schools Curriculum published by Wheaton Press. The following course descriptions come from The Engaged Schools Curriculum workbooks. For more information on this curriculum, visit WheatonPress.com.

Students are required to complete four (4) credits in Bible for graduation (or one credit per year enrolled at Coulee Christian School).
