Our Curriculum

Three decades ago, God raised up A Beka Book to provide Christian schools with God-honoring, high-quality textbooks and teaching aids to help each school fulfill the goal of its ministry. The hundreds of traditional Christian educational materials developed by A Beka Book have been developed and refined over a period of 50 years in the classrooms of Pensacola Christian Academy. Christian schools throughout the nation recognize that A Beka Book sets the standard of excellence in the publishing of textbooks and other materials for Christian schools.

At A Beka Book, we are unashamedly Christian and traditional in our approach to education.

The A Beka Book approach to Christian education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable. Our materials reflect sensible theory that is firmly anchored to practicality. A Beka Book materials have been developed as a result of 50 years of actual classroom experience in Pensacola Christian Academy, one of America’s largest and most respected Christian day schools.

Our skilled researchers and writers do not paraphrase progressive education textbooks and add Biblical principles; they do primary research in every subject and look at the subject from God’s point of view. Of course, the most original source is always the Word of God, the only foundation for true scholarship in any area of human endeavor. Thus, our publications are built upon the firm foundation of Scriptural truth and are written by dedicated and talented Christian scholars who are well grounded in the practical aspects of classroom teaching. For excellence for your Christian school, you can trust A Beka Book.

Dr. Arlin Horton, president and founder of Pensacola Christian College, Pensacola Christian Academy, and A Beka Book, has been an outstanding leader in the Christian school movement since 1954. Thousands of Christian school administrators across America have been inspired and helped by his willingness to share his practical wisdom and by his commitment to making the Bible the foundation, guide, and measuring stick for every area of life and service. In the A Beka Book ministry, President Horton’s ultimate goal is training young lives for eternity. His quiet leadership and his desire to be of help to others have combined to make A Beka Book America’s leading producer of textbooks for Christian schools.


Mrs. Arlin (Beka) Horton, senior vice president, has played the leading role in the development of the academic program available from A Beka Book. Through the years, she has faithfully invested her multiple talents to give balance and excellence to all areas of the Christian school curriculum. Beka Horton sets the overall direction and editorial policy for the textbooks and curriculums and personally edits many of the materials published by A Beka Book. Her many years as an outstanding Bible teacher are reflected in the Bible program, and her understanding of the Scriptures, coupled with her keen reasoning abilities, have helped the authors in each subject area to reach our goal of building the content of every textbook on the foundation of God’s Word.
