Get the support you need with the flexibility you want! When you enroll in the CLASS Plan, your student's academic records are maintained by CLASS. We assemble the curriculum best fitted for your child based on standardized test scores, other academic information, and your course choices, in accord with CLASS curriculum requirements. Your schedule is up to you! Books and materials are chosen from a variety of carefully selected publishers. In addition to the publishers routinely assigned within our standard curriculum, CLASS offers alternate publishers in certain course categories for selected grade levels. If you request an alternate course, CLASS will assign it provided that your student’s academic background and standardized test scores are appropriate for the grade level. After you begin working with our curriculum, you may request a new assignment if a particular course proves inappropriate.
Curriculum: The table below briefly describes the courses and materials in this curriculum. Please click on a course title in the table below to see its description and a book preview. (Note: Book preview is not available for some courses). For more detailed information, please view Grade 8 curriculum on the CLASS Website.
Book Credits: When enrolling with CLASS, certain books qualify for tuition credit if you already own these books. CLASS has made this option available to you in order to try to reduce your tuition costs. Within the chart below, please pay special attention to the items in red, which qualify for this credit. When ordering, if you have the book title indicated (please be careful to verify the correct title, publisher, and published date for the title), you may select above that you do not need this title shipped to you and your credit will immediately be applied to your purchase. CLASS does not provide financial credit for most teacher keys or manuals, or Christian Liberty Press publications.
Achievement and Placement Testing:
New and re-entering students New and re-entering students enrolling in grades 2–12 must take a placement test prior to curriculum development. CLASS prefers to use the California Achievement Test (CAT) - either online CAT* or paper CAT, especially if you need a standardized achievement test to meet local requirements. You may use the online TestPoint placement test* if you need to determine if the student is ready for a selected grade instead. There is no extra charge for either selection.
Re-enrolling students Re-enrolling students are not required to be tested. Unless you choose another testing option, a paper California Achievement Test will be included with your curriculum materials and may be completed at your convenience. There is no additional charge if you would prefer the online CAT*.
Pre-Testing If you choose to have your re-enrolling student pre-tested, please select yes above. The student’s curriculum will not be developed until the pre-test is completed and returned. The CAT test (online* or paper version) is recommended for pre-testing, but not required.
*Please allow 1 - 2 business days processing time for your online test. You will be notified via email with website information when your student's test is set up and ready to be taken.
Comments and Requests: To help us develop a proper curriculum for your student, we ask that you provide us with any:

I am a first time home school mom. I looked through the texts, tests, and curriculum only to find that this doesn't seem to be difficult. I also like the fact that CLASS has a Christian based curriculum. That's something that public schools don't provide. I believe that if you want to teach a child and prepare them for life you must first introduce them to God.

I never homeschooled before and didn't know what to expect. This package covers everything that you need except a bible which I had at home. Instructions are very clear and tell you what is expected. You do need to be very organized though. I like the math book and how it is laid out. The bible class workbook I also enjoyed...no matter what your prior knowledge is about god it's easy to learn and comhrehend. The constitution cd lets you do all your work on the computer which is really nice. I wish that was available for all classes. The only book I do not like is the grammar and spelling. My son has a hard time with this and I don't feel that the workbook helps to make it easy to learn however every kid is different . Overall I think this is a great package for any kid and I also think its great to purchase for your first time homeschooling. It comes with a lesson planner which helps keep you on track.

We receive your curriculum since 1991 and we have seen how you always upgrade them and improve them. We are very grateful to use this material to promote good education in Africa.

I could not thank you enough for what your school had done for my family. We are truly blessed with the help of CLASS in organizing our homeschool of four children. The curriculum is outstanding and I can see my children not only grow in knowledge academically but the spiritual growth has been extraordinary. I also want to thank you for the Graduation Ceremony of the eighth graders and high school seniors, which my daughter participated in. It was the best one I have ever been to, and I am looking forward to the next one we are able to attend.

We are very much enjoying our home schooling and appreciate the CLASS assistance with literature and grade subjects. It helps me so much to feel I am not alone in educating my son (and daughter). I feel assured they are learning the right way at appropriate levels since we have you to back us/support us with what to focus on.
I am recommending your program to those I am approached by on the home schooling subject. It has been a blessing to begin teaching at home with your program and I don’t know how any rookie as I am could manage otherwise.
