Who We Are
BJU Press provides K4–Grade 12 curriculum and support to encourage Christian character and to promote academic excellence in homeschool families. We also produce youth fiction, adult nonfiction, and DVDs for edification.
We believe in educating the whole child. Education should not be lopsided and focus on any one educational value to the detriment of another. A child should be well-rounded so as to be prepared for the world we live in. This is why we focus on preserving three main values in our currciulum—biblical worldview, sound education, and joy of learning.
Proverbs 9:10 states that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” As we write our textbooks, we take great care to apply these truths. Through thoughtful biblical-worldview shaping in the pages of math and science as well as other subjects, we help students to understand that a biblical frame of reference really does apply to all areas of life and all courses of study. Our textbooks come alongside you to help reinforce how you are raising your children—as a Deuteronomy 6:7 parent.
Sound education combined with a biblical worldview encourages students to critically evaluate the content they are learning. The true measure of academic success is not when a child can simply repeat information but when he understands that information and how to apply it. Through ongoing research, our curriculum is revised in order to support you as you teach your children what they need to know and how they should think. Using inductive teaching, hands-on learning, and probing questions designed to reach all learning styles, our textbooks help your children develop their knowledge and skills.
Joy of Learning
One of the most exciting moments for parents is when they realize that their children have become self-motivated learners. School should not be a chore or drudgery but instead should unlock each child’s God-given curiosity, wonder, and delight in the fascinating world that God has created. Included in our curriculum are various teaching strategies that aid sound education as well as joy of learning. Multisensory teaching techniques, colorful textbooks, and more will help your child enjoy learning.
