The homeschool honor requires students to memorize and recite more than 400 pieces of information from history, math, science, geography, arts and music and language.

From STAFF REPORTS

In addition, students completed 24 weeks of fine arts, including music theory, study of composers and classical music and techniques of great artists, including drawing and painting.
