Language Arts

Language Arts

Greenleaf High School will give students the opportunity to take academically strong courses that are packed with meaning and beauty and use only wholesome, profanity-free literature of the highest merit. Prepare your student for college-level literature, writing, and grammar with courses that use a cross-curricular approach to maximize learning (including geography and art) in less time.

Science

Science

Our high school science team, led by the “good and beautiful” vision of Jenny Phillips, is composed of college professors, scientists, editors, filmmakers, illustrators, graphic designers, and reviewers. The self-directed science courses are visually beautiful and dive deep into the wonders of our universe, all while preparing students for college-level academics. High school students are encouraged to take our three core science courses: Earth & Space Science (releasing summer of 2019), Physical Science (releasing summer of 2020), and Biology (releasing summer of 2021).

History

Coming 2021 or later

History

The Good and the Beautiful team is in the process of creating high school history courses titled Journey Through History, which will be released in 2021 or later. To fulfill high school history requirements, students can complete our K–12 family-style history program OR our upcoming Journey Through History courses which will focus on world and United States history (all of which can be self-directed, done with a parent, or completed with a group). Because the project is in the beginning stages and is changing as it is refined, we are not able to release any details at this time. We also hope to eventually release high school history courses on Canadian, UK, Australian, and South African history.

Electives

Coming 2020 or later

Electives

Greenleaf High School has big plans for elective classes! We are not ready to announce any of them quite yet, but we will keep this page updated as our plans unfold.

Frequently Asked High School Questions

What is Greenleaf High School?

Greenleaf High School is a program with unaccredited homeschool high school courses that can be done completely at home or with local high school groups created by parents. Our Student/Parent Portal, which will release in 2020, will provide students with grade tracking and easy access to videos, audio recordings, and other components of our courses.

Is Greenleaf High School Curriculum similar to The Good and the Beautiful Pre K-8 Curriculum?

Greenleaf High School curriculum is similar to The Good and the Beautiful PreK-8 curriculum in that it integrates only top-quality literature, clean literature; that it connects students to God, nature, and high-character; that is academically solid and thorough. The high school curriculum is all self-directed by the student, but can also be completed in a group setting with parent and student, in school settings, or in co-op settings.

When will new Greenleaf High School courses be available?

For the 2019/2020 school year, Language Arts 1 and Language Arts 2, as well as Earth & Space Science and the Little Men Honors Book Study will be available. High School 3 will release in the summer of 2020. We do not have any further release dates available at this time.

What is behind the name Greenleaf High School?

Because Greenleaf High School is unique from our Pre-K through 8 curriculum and is more rigorous, it needed a different, more mature name. The high school division is named after the American writer and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892), who represents important aspects of our curriculum: high-quality literature, high moral character, hard work, a love of nature, and a love of learning. Students study John Greenleaf Whittier and read a biography about him in the High School 1 language arts course.

Can I get more information about the overall program and the Student/Parent Portal?

Students can take as many or as few classes as they would like from Greenleaf High School. Our courses are meant to leave students with a solid, beautiful education and a sense of accomplishment. Anticipated features of the student/parent portal include the ability to keep track of grades, classes, community service, and other items that will be useful for college applications as well as free access to all online components of our courses. Parents will be able to log in to update grades and track student progress. Courses will not be online. Rather, the courses are self-directed or done in a group (which can be teacher-directed). Parents grade all classes (or by teachers if the student is working within a class or group) and will enter the grades in the parent portal. The courses use physical materials, with many of them containing
online audio or videos to watch as part of the course.

What curriculum should I use for my high schooler while I am waiting for Greenleaf High School Curriculum to release?

For the 2019/2020 school year, Greenleaf High School will have language arts and science curriculum. History can be studied using The Good and the Beautiful K–12 family style history program. You will need to use another curriculum for math.
