Foundational Bible Survey Courses
We are excited to offer online Foundational Bible Survey courses for high school students and lifelong learners.
High School Students
Begin earning college credit while still in high school! With Faith Online Learning you can complete 18 college credits between our Foundational Bible Survey courses and our summer Jump Start program—that’s the equivalent of one semester. You can begin taking Jump Start classes the summer following your sophomore year. You can begin taking Foundational Bible Survey courses the fall semester of your junior year. Here is the suggested schedule to complete all 18 credits before enrolling as a full-time student at Faith for college.
|Summer before Junior Year||First Jump Start course||2 credits|
|During your Junior Year||Two online courses (fall and spring)||6 credits|
|Summer before Senior Year||Second Jump Start course||2 credits|
|During your Senior Year||Two online courses (fall and spring)||6 credits|
|Summer after you Graduate||Third Jump Start course||2 credits|
Foundational Bible Survey courses are also available for those who are not enrolled full-time at Faith but desire to grow in their knowledge of God’s Word. Our desire is to help train Sunday School teachers, parents, deacons, youth leaders, and other men and women in local churches across the country.
