The curriculum at Mullein Hill follows the Massachusetts Frameworks in order to provide a seamless transition for students leaving and entering the public school system. In selected subjects, we continue to use Abeka, Bob Jones, or ACSI Christian curriculum. All secular texts are reviewed and evaluated extensively by teachers and approved by the Board of Directors. As always, we strive to provide a challenging education that is presented with a Christian world view.
