Academics Content


Scripture Memorization and Study

Though we believe that earning an academic degree is very important, we also believe that studying the Bible is crucial to the development of a well-rounded individual. Each week, the students will choose a passage of scripture that they desire to learn more about. The students will then do an in-depth study on the history of the passage so that they can fully grasp what the passage is trying to say. The assignment will also include questions that cause them to think about how they can apply the lesson from the passage to their daily life. Each student will be challenged to memorize a portion of the passage and recite or write it down from memory on the test day. Through taking time to study and memorize the scripture, we believe that students will have opportunities for personal growth and reflection specifically inspired by God’s Word, and that they will develop a practice of studying that will continue into their adult years.

Life Lessons, Leadership, Enrichment

At The Chicago Master’s Commission, we also offer a variety of classes that are taught by in-house pastors and CMC staff members. The first years in the program attend weekly Life Lessons classes. These classes teach very practical and spiritual lessons that we find essential for the development of young people so that they can live lives of excellence. Our second and third years attend Leadership classes that are specifically geared toward teaching them the practical and spiritual aspects of being a successful leader. Every student also gets to attend our Enrichment classes. These classes, taught by pastors and leaders of New Life Covenant Church, are classes that are formed out of specific topics that today’s young people are faced with and how the Bible instructs us to deal with them. The combination of the Life Lessons, Leadership, and Enrichment classes gives each student teachings that prepare them to be successful practically and spiritually as they develop.
