LifeSong Scholars curriculum for Girls Ages 7-12Girls studying the Bible with the LifeSong curriculum are referred to as “Scholars” in order to impress upon them the caliber of training they receive. Through engaging, lifeskill-enhancing lessons, girls grow in their confidence in the Bible and knowledge of our awesome Creator, increase their enthusiasm for worship, and learn about sharing their faith. The curriculum builds a Biblical worldview through lessons that increase in depth and complexity over the program’s 3-year span. Lessons stress the importance of Biblical purity, turning down worldly ideals, and maturing in faith. Lessons are age-specific and designed to provide time for fun and fellowship.
What the Curriculum EntailsThe LifeSong Scholars Bible Study curriculum is divided into 3 levels and 2 age groups designed to allow girls to participate for up to a total of six years in the program. Depending upon the age of the girl when she enters the program, each curriculum level provides increasing depth of study to expand knowledge and understanding of God’s Word. Every lesson is designed to help children develop confidence in who they are in Christ. The curriculum is intended to encourage the development of key Biblical characteristics and promote growth towards becoming mature young women of God.
Ideally, girls begin the program at age 7 and have the opportunity to participate in all curriculum levels. However, the program is designed so that girls may start at any age from 7 and 12. Girls that start at an older age can still experience the core portions of the curriculum.
The program is divided into progressive categories as follows: Levels I through III, Apprentice I and II, and Senior Scholars. The progression through the program is designed to be stepped, with each higher level building upon material presented in previous years.
All girls begin at Level I for their age group – either Level I for ages 7-9 or Level I for ages 10-12. After completing Level I, each girl may advance to the next curriculum level sequentially. Girls that complete Levels I through III may elect to participate in Apprentice I and II. Girls that complete the Apprentice programs may then enroll in the Senior Scholars program – the highest level available.
Below is a description of each program level. Age groups and levels can be combined as needed, based on the availability of Group Leaders.
