ODCS uses BJU Press for most of its core subjects. According to their core values, BJU Press uses the biblical themes of Creation, the Fall, and Redemption as the lenses through which to look at all academic disciplines. As students view academic subjects through the lens of Scripture, they learn how to redeem those subjects back to God.
This curriculum uses hands-on-learning, creative problem solving, and other research-proven instructional strategies to engage students and inspire real learning. BJU Press also challenges students to connect what they are learning with other subject material. Students learn how concepts they learn in one subject are related to concepts learned in another subject.
All subjects in BJU Press curriculum promote critical and creative thinking that is foundationally biblical. BJU Press has been doing critical evaluations with other national standards for years in an effort to stay true to Scripture while at the same time still properly prepare students for the expectations of higher studies and the requirements of standardized testing.
