Colton Christian School is proud to use Bob Jones University Press curriculum. BJUP has consistently been the gold standard of Christian school curriculum and makes dutiful efforts to ensure all subjects are biblically integrated, saturated with Scriptural truth, and overflowing with opportunities for students to worship the Creator through His creation.
Colton Christian School also recognizes BJUP's response to Common Core as it relates to incorporating sound academic teaching and a Christian perspective: "We do not limit ourselves to the level of the standards but go beyond, based on our philosophy of learning and sound educational practices. In other words, our materials exceed these Common Core State Standards in age-appropriate instruction and academic rigor."
