Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective

Surviving a homeschool curriculum fail and starting with a better approach

Why do you need Psychology from a Christian Perspective curriculum for high school?

Homeschoolers benefit from studying a fun high school Psychology course. Psychology is one of those rare courses that are both:

  • Practical for building real-life skills (for career-bound teens OR college-prep teens)
  • Practical for building a college-attractive transcript

What are some of benefits of a high school Psychology course?

  • Whether career-bound or college-bound, homeschool high schoolers benefit from increasing their understanding of God’s wonderful creation of our mind and personality.
  • They learn some helpful life skills, like the importance of sleep and ways to help a hurting friend.
  • Psychology is a Social Science. Social Science courses help create the well-rounded transcript colleges seek. Some colleges even require .5 credit of a Social Science on the high school transcript.
  • Many college majors require Psychology. It is good to have a Christian foundation in psychology particularly before experiencing it at college (perhaps secular) level.

7SistersHomeschool.com’s Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective is different from many high school Psychology courses. Many high school texts are wordy, serious and often aimed only at the AP-prep students. While those Psychology courses are fine for some students, many teens are turned off by that format. Parents tell us that would be great to have a Psychology text that is:

  • Interesting
    • We know that boring texts make learning difficult, so we created Psych to be a text teens like!
  • Short lessons written so that an average (non-college-bound) teen can read and enjoy
    • The text is written in a light-hearted manner, at an average-level vocabulary.
  • Includes meaningful, individualized activities that college-prep, advanced and honors students can use to build a rigorous credit that sparkles the transcript
    • College-bound teens tell us the LOVE having the opportunity for creating their own powerful credit from the suggested activities list for each chapter.
  • Includes test bank with answer key
    • Parents tell us they love this!

That’s just what homeschool high schoolers find when they choose 7Sisters Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective.

What are homeschooling parents saying about Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective?

“As a psychology minor myself, I was looking for a course that allowed my daughter to think for herself, but would give her guidance.  This course did exactly that.  Since taking the course, she has had the opportunity to talk with a psychology professor (from a secular world view) on several occasions.  The professor is impressed with how well she articulates her thoughts and how well she understands basic psychology.” – A. Cook

“Just taking a minute to let you know I have enjoyed using your Intro to Psychology course in our homeschool co-op this past semester.  The content was excellent, and the material was laid out in a very user friendly format; both student and teacher editions.  The cost was very affordable for the students. I will certainly be returning for additional courses.” – Betty H.

“My daughter and I just finished the Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective curriculum and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you for all that you do in providing curricululm for our students!” – Stephanie B.

“I appreciate the thought that has gone into the creation of this curriculum. This curriculum helps me to provide this experience in a manner that reflects my beliefs. A dry sponge absorbs a lot. A wet sponge cannot absorb much at all.  Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective enables me to ‘fill the sponge’ before my children encounter psychology courses in college. I have also enjoyed the conversations that have arisen from the enrichment activities. To date, two of our children have taken the course.” – D. Harper
