"AMO is truly an amazing program. I have used it to teach our children at home. My husband, who has a teaching degree, shared this about the Proverbs Teachers guide, 'The person who designed this program knows how to teach children.'

"After my children completed the Proverbs unit, one of them made a poor choice in his actions. When I described to the child the poor choice, this is how he responded, 'Oh no, I am being a foolish child! I don't want to be a foolish child! I want to be a wise child!" This was said several weeks after the class had ended. Right now, the children are taking a co-op class, Joel, A Boy From Galilee. It is a fantastic class and the children are learning much about the life of Jesus Christ and the Hebrew culture." R. C., Home educator of five

    Biblical Methods

    AMO’s Methods:

    Most adults around the world ‘look down on’ children and discount their spirituality because they are ‘mere children.’ Jesus esteems them as the “greatest in the kingdom of God” (Matthew 18:1-5).

    AMO’s methods are based on the Christian view of the child:

    Man, the crowning glory of creation, is made in God’s image and destined for immortality. Every child has great potential, creativity, the capacity to think and reason, dream and envision. Each is ennobled with dignity and worth! In the eye of God, all children are equal and imputed with independent value apart from their station in life and their abilities.

    AMO’s methods are distinctively biblical:

    1. The Gospel is proclaimed!
    2. The whole child is nurtured—mentally, spiritually, aesthetically, physically, and socially.
    3. Love is shared through relationships, service projects and community events.
    4. Truth is imparted in every lesson.
    5. Creativity is inspired by the fine arts.
    6. Christian imagination is cultivated.
    7. God’s Hand in history is memorialized.
    8. Reflective thinking and reasoning with God’s Word is practiced in every lesson.
    9. Character is taught as causative, not the environment.
    10. Parents are included through weekly prayer and blessing cards.
    11. A written record of learning is maintained by each child.
    12. Learning is celebrated through music, drama, and festivals.
