Philosophy of Education

It is the belief of Christian Academy of America that the responsibility of education comes directly from God to the parents and home (Deut. 6:4-10). The Academy exists in purpose to assist Christian parents with their responsibility to educate their children according to the teachings of Scripture that each student might exhibit Christlikeness and recognize their responsibility to grow in maturity, in obedience to God, and in service to others.

  Christian Academy of America believes in the utilization of modern educational materials and technologies in order to provide educational opportunities and experiences that are now available to every Christian family.


  Christian Academy supports the Biblical teaching that each person is a unique creation in the image of God and that each person is a spiritual, physical, and social being. Therefore, the Academy places an emphasis on training the complete person. Due to man’s fallen nature, discipline is needed to train the will and to build character, behavior and good habits in each student. C.A.A. strives to impact each student by appealing to those special talents and abilities with which each is gifted. By virtue of these differences, the Christian home should teach individual students where they are academically, emotionally, and spiritually gifted. Therefore, the Academy seeks to individualize the coursework with the idea of taking the students from where they are to where they need to be. This individualized process will provide each student with appropriate learning tasks, time frames, and standards for content mastery.


 The parent holds the primary responsibility for the education of the child. Once enrolled, the parent has agreed to partner with the Academy to accomplish the task of educating the student. The Academy staff supporting the parent creates a very powerful combination. Daily parental involvement as the primary educator is essential to ensure the student’s success. “Primary” in this context means “first in line”. As the primary educator, the parent’s role is to establish the proper student work area and to supervise the student during their daily activities, while making sure that all procedures as set forth in the Handbook and Instructions are being carefully followed. The parent is further tasked with assisting the student when an impasse in the coursework is reached and monitoring the progress of the student throughout the school year. The Academy Handbook gives the parent the detailed instructions for the monitoring of student progress and the Academy staff is available to assist the parent at any time during regular school hours.

  Christian Academy of America does not encourage or condone parents to leave their children alone in the home. In most states this is not legal until the child is of a certain age. It is very tempting for a parent to leave students, particularly older students, to work independently at home and/or on the computer. C.A.A. highly discourages parents from such practices. Most students lack the maturity to manage their time wisely without adult supervision and many struggle with mastering new concepts and skills if left alone to learn by themselves. Parent involvement is absolutely essential for the success of this program.


  The Academy staff is supporting the parents in their God-given responsibility to be the primary educators of their children.

  The staff further supports the parent by assisting in the determination of the student’s current skill level and placement of curriculum assignments to take the student to the next level in their education.

  By requesting and obtaining the student’s academic records from the previous school and exercising their education knowledge, the Academy staff can set forth a course of study for the student’s academic success.

  The Academy provides the parent with a Christian, self-instructional, individualized, curriculum to assist them in the education of the student.

  The Handbook and Instructions is provided to parents by the Academy.

  The Academy staff continues to support the parent by providing quality technical, academic, and administrative assistance on a daily basis.

  The Academy staff reviews and reports student progress, while maintaining the student’s academic records. Transcripts of the student’s academic work are available to the parent upon request.

  Upon successful completion of the graduation requirements, the Academy issues a High School diploma.


The curriculums used by Christian Academy of America were developed within the framework of the vision and mission of Christian Academy of America and aligns well with the Academy’s purpose and mission. The curriculum designers are experienced classroom teachers and experts who utilized the personalized, individualized mode for program delivery. The materials are designed to meet the academic needs of most K -12 grade students.

The original design for the curriculum was research-based, and that design incorporated a number of key features, which the research continues to validate. For example, the design includes both a formative and summative assessment system, the use of individualized learning goals, and a diagnostic- prescriptive instructional approach within a mastery-learning framework.

Both the workbook and the online curriculum materials provide a very structured learning sequence with a set standard of performance. Each subject’s content (scope and sequence) and performance (mastery level) can be thought of as the student’s learning base. The learning base provides an instructional base from which a highly individualized and personalized educational program may be delivered, while providing criteria for mastery competence level. This structured program guides and directs learning by using standards and by placing a benchmark for mastery learning performance levels within which students may experience and practice with independence. Thus, students are guided and directed through the learning process and at the same time are allowed to exercise freedom and learn responsibility. They learn to make proper choices and decisions, to set goals, and to accomplish them independently. They also exercise self- discipline as they work within standards and limitations of behavior.
