The 2023-2024 term starts August 24, 2023 and concludes on May 2, 2024. Calendars are coordinated with local school schedules for spring/fall breaks and holidays.
Beyond the 3 hours of class, expect 4-8 hours of homework each week. Much of this is reading, workbook, class presentations, and Bible study. Completion of the program is based on class participation and homework completion, rather than a letter grade.

Service hours can be completed at Northside, another church, or even a non-profit Christian ministry. Scheduling is determined by the supervising minister/director.
