Why Is Adventist Christian Academy the Best Choice?
Because in our school there is a lower teacher-pupil ratio, it allows for more careful assessment of the needs, strengths, and weaknesses of each student. The teacher is better able to individualize the instruction to fit the student’s needs and learning style.
The small school program setting largely escapes the fixed schedules, pullout programs, red tape and administrative trivialities of larger schools. This enables new teaching strategies to be implemented with a minimum of delay. Field trips, projects and use of equipment can fit into the actual flow of the classroom learning experiences without having to adjust to the plans of several other classrooms.
The North American Division Office of Education has developed quality curriculum materials for multi-grade classrooms. Integration of learning levels and subjects allows the students to apply skills across the curriculum in real-life situations.
Students learn to work with a wide age span. Cooperative learning and peer tutoring helps to sharpen social skills. Independent work habits as well as greater feelings of responsibility and self-esteem are developed.
A sense of community quickly develops. There is more interaction among the smaller group.
A major factor for student success in our school is for the parents to be actively involved in the child’s education. Our school setting provides many opportunities for involvement from helping with projects, and field trips, to learn to play a musical instrument and be part of the school band.
Studies have shown that students from multi-grade schools do as well or better on standardized tests as do students in single grade classrooms. However, more small school students go on to college.
Our students have the opportunity to develop leadership skills from an early age. Every student is called upon to lead out in some aspect of the school program—a true training ground for the future.
Character building is the centerpiece of Adventist Christian education. The family atmosphere of our school provides an environment that supports and extends this important work begun in the home.
Seventh-day Adventist Christian education focuses on preparing students for eternity. The smaller setting allows time to be spent in sharing and building a personal relationship with Christ. Smaller groups and flexible scheduling make outreach in service to the community easier to accomplish.
