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

Lifelong Learners
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.

Q: Can I take these classes through PSEO?
A: No. Most public schools will not approve Bible classes for PSEO.

Q: When can I start taking online classes as a high school student?
A: You can begin taking online classes in the fall semester of your junior year. You can begin taking Jump Start summer courses the summer before your junior year.

Q: When should I apply?
A: You can complete an application up to a year before the class begins.

Q: Do I need to complete a new application for every class?
A: No. Once you have applied for a Foundational Bible Survey course, you can continue enrolling in the next class without reapplying. If you take a class and then sit out for a year without taking another class, you will need to reapply.

Q: What do I do once I am enrolled?
A: Once you become an online student, you will receive login information from Faith. You will then be required to take a short online orientation before your first class.
