In order to help high school students learn the essential teachings of Christ, the Church recently introduced the Doctrinal Mastery program to be taught in Seminary classes. The program focuses on 10 major doctrines:

Acquiring spiritual knowledge
The Godhead
The plan of salvation
The Atonement of Jesus Christ
The Restoration
Prophets and revelation
Priesthood and priesthood keys
Ordinances and covenants
Marriage and family
A carefully selected list of 100 scriptures—25 from each Standard Work—is used to teach these important doctrines. During the 2017 year, Book of Mormon Central will be providing resources that can be used to supplement this program as students go through the Book of Mormon.
