Students will be educated using the Abeka curriculum. Millions of Christian school students have used Abeka since it started in 1972. Students taught with Abeka have been accepted into prestigious colleges and gone on to serve the LORD in demanding careers. For over forty years, schools and homeschooling families have trusted Abeka to provide materials using the traditional approach proven successful throughout education’s history (https://www.abeka.com, 2019). The Abeka curriculum is very affordable and versatile for all age groups. Professionally illustrated textbooks and teaching aids, hands-on activities, challenging exercises, purposeful repetition, and the reinforcement of concepts from subject to subject give teachers the proper tools to make learning interesting and memorable. Each subject’s content comes from the work of skilled, dedicated scholars who have conducted primary research.

Class Dojo will be used this year as one of our primary forms of communication for our Academy.

Once your child(ren) enroll(s), please use the following link to request to join our school. https://www.classdojo.com/invite/?s=5f947e832b6f1f7caf0b030d Your child's teacher will approve all requests. Class Dojo is the fun-named digital platform that works to connect teachers, students, and families in and out of the physical classroom by using a feed of photos and videos as well as messaging. While a photo and video feed from the classroom to parents and guardians is popular these days, and certainly not a unique service, the messaging part is a little more rare. Class Dojo specializes by offering a decent messaging service with built-in translation for up to 35 languages and a rating system for monitoring student progress.Learn More
