Elective Education Courses

The goal of the Elective Education courses is to give students life skills for adulthood – whether in terms of household care, repair of items, and more. By learning these skills, students become good stewards of the blessings they receive from God.

Students are required to complete four (4) credits in Electives for graduation.
