Individualized Curriculum and Programs.
Education apart from Biblical values is not true education, that is why at Castle Creek Christian Academy, we use the School of Tomorrow Accelerated Christian Education (ACE). School of Tomorrow designed a Biblically-based program geared to meet learning needs of individual children.
The program consists of self-instructional, character-building, individually prescribed, continuous progress curriculum and material.
Our educational concept is built on the five basic laws of learning:
At Castle Creek Christian Academy, we are focusing on what is best for the individual child, and, after all, that is what should be the primary concern of education.
Whether the student is a high-achiever or a moderate-paced learner, the PACEs (Packet of Accelerated Christian Education) are designed for the educational process to proceed at the exact level determined by your child's ability. This is what is meant by individualization. Individualization makes it possible for each student to master the subject matter before moving on. Such mastery is the foundation upon which all future learning is built.
Individualism produces academic excellence. One reason is because students take responsibility for their own learning. Another reason is because of the character training in wisdom. Moreover, students go on to higher education and into business and professional pursuits with confidence and a superb educational background.
Character training received as part of this learning experience prepares students to welcome and accept challenges and future opportunities that come their way.
Biblical values and concepts considered foundational to meaningful interpersonal relationships and productive living are conveyed throughout the curriculum in such a way as to become life-shaping influences.
We believe that we are building lives for the future.
Diagnostic test placement insures that students begin at the exact point of their academic needs. Diagnostic testing determines if there are any "learning gaps." Students can simply fill in the "learning gaps" without the stigma of "failing" a grade or falling behind.
Character traits, like kindness, loyalty, and honesty, are taught within the curriculum, whether it is Math, English, history, or whatever course the student takes. Students observe character development and then apply the character lesson to their own lives.
Wisdom is the highest of the three dimensions of life and helps students to walk with God, to live as He did when He was in human form. That is the purpose of education - to teach children not only about life, but how to live it. Wisdom is observable Biblical principles and character in action.
This unique combination of academics and methodology, based on phsiological development patterns and Biblical principles, sets the curriculum apart from all other curricula. It provides mastery learning, critical analysis, conceptualization, cognitive reasoning, and life from God's perspective.
