Secondary English is designed to engage students in enduring classic literature, examining the "great ideas and issues" faced by mankind throughout history using the lens of a Biblical worldview. The program is reading and composition intensive. Each year students will read several whole, unabridged books. Students study a variety of genres: novels, plays, short stories, poems, essays and speeches. While classical literature (time honored and critically acclaimed) does not always reflect Biblical principles, LPA studies these selections--examined and approached within strategic protective boudaries--to ensure students have a thorough understanding of history, culture, and the nature of man.
