Eden Primary refers to our K-6th grade program. They meet and hold classes completely separated from the older grade levels. Eden Secondary refers to our 7-12th grade program. With this group we focus on academics with our many A-G approved courses. Eden Prep and Eden Standard refers to a student's enrollment status; Eden Prep is our full-time (25 credits or more - pay flat rate) enrollment status and Eden Standard is our A la Carte enrollment status (choose 1 or more courses - pay per course). All Eden Primary students are a part of the Eden Prep Academy enrollment and the Eden Secondary students have a choice to be full-time enrolled for a reduced flat rate.

At Eden we always tell people we are a Christian Worldview organization but we teach all non-sectarian courses. That means that we use the moral principles of love, humility, honesty, and goodness towards all people to form the foundations of our campus life. No one has to be a person of faith to attend, but you must respect people of all faiths, or of no faith, and at all times.
We use "clean" curriculum which is a very general term we use to indicate that we do not teach controversial topics such as modern sexual education courses, gender identity, or multiple versions of evolution. We trust parents and charter teachers to work out those details according to state requirements and personal preference. We are here to serve all people with respect and consideration to our diversity.
Alma is our Learning Management System. It is where all courses will host assignments, documents, grades, downloads, student and parent information, and most communications. Upon registration in courses, both parent and student will receive login credentials for their account. This is essential to the success of every student since instructors will put all assignment due dates and grades into Alma and it is the students and parents responsibility to check it weekly.
Our instructor-guided independent study courses have the same requirement as the campus classes and you meet with the instructor either once or twice a month depending on the course. These meetings are virtual meetings unless campus meetings can be arranged. Beginning in Fall 2019 we will be testing out LIVE courses in which students can login at the scheduled course time and video conference into the classroom so they can be a part of the class and ask questions as well as interact with the instructor and students.
Students will submit their work online and receive grades in Alma. The instructors are also available for questions or assistance during the week via telephone, email, or even virtual meetings for any additional help needed.
