The curriculum is in the following six major categories: God's nature and character; God's intention for individuals, peoples and nations; seeing all of life from God's perspective; redemption, sin, and the Cross; God's family - the Church; God's world - His call and commission; the ministries of YWAM.

Challenge students to go deep. Not think we "know" after having scratched the surface. - We can know truly but not exhaustively Then there are also Building blocks that do not run through the whole school in the same way as the three-fold DNA does. Instead they appear at certain points as lecture topics, assignments etc Presupposition Thinking Biblical Christian Worldview Understanding of worldviews Importance of understanding of flow of history Domains/spheres of society Science Non-negotiable parts of the school - Seminar paper: student demonstrates command of skills and content in the method of reinterpretation - Periodical examinations as a means of measuring the student's comprehension of the material - Bible study assignment: demonstrating the applicability of the Bible to the whole of life. - One-on-once, group work, feedback times, work duties, written and oral assignments, prayer and intercession, worship -community of learning!
