CHC's curriculum for Eighth Grade distinguishes between core and elective subjects. Core subjects are the "basic essentials" of education for a particular grade, such as reading, science, and religion. Electives, such as art and map skills, can be added as time, interest, and finances allow. Visit the Eighth Grade Interactive Guide to take a subject-by-subject tour of core and elective materials, including printable sample pages that can be used to determine grade placement!
The Eighth Grade Core Kit includes all the core materials for Eighth Grade except for math and science, which can be purchased more affordably from other sources. The recommended math and science books are listed below along with information on where to purchase them.
