The Far Above Rubies unit study is designed to train girls to become the godly women our Lord wants them to be. It is based on Proverbs 31:10-31, and is meant to cover all subjects for a complete high school education, including many suggestions for expanding into specialized areas of interest. The main emphasis of this unit is on preparing daughters for the life calling of wife and mother. Though the material tries to provide a well-rounded curriculum useful for college preparatory purposes as well as offering a number of business and vocational skills, its goal is to help Christian young ladies develop their skills and abilities for useful service within the family setting.

This curriculum stresses the importance of a woman making her family her #1 earthly priority in terms of time and emotional commitment.
