CURRICULUM

CHCA believes that all students are not always at the same level of performance. For those students in Kindergarten and First Grade, A Beka curriculum is used. The A Beka Book approach to education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable.  The materials reflect sensible theory that is firmly anchored to practicality. ABeka is widely known for its excellence in preparing young students to be above proficient readers.
Accelerated Christian Education recognizes that students perform at different levels.  Students are tested diagnostically upon entering the school.   Students are then placed in the curriculum in each subject at their own performance levels determined by the results of the diagnostic tests.  CHCA also believes that students should have a curriculum that encourages high academic standards.  The unique format of the curriculum allows students to advance from unit to unit as they demonstrate mastery. In order to demonstrate mastery, students must make higher than a 79% on their tests.   Students move independently through the curriculum under the supervision of instructors who provide tutoring at the optimum moment of learning.
CHCA’s Science curriculum for the High School is from Apologia Educational Ministries.  Apologia Science publishes award-winning, creation-based Science textbooks whose goal is to inspire an appreciation for Science and a passion for learning.  Our academically rigorous, college preparatory books are written in an easy-to-understand, conversational tone directly to the student.  Apologia Science also uses a “hands-on” approach to Science.  Students are required to do lab work where they participate in many activities, such as combining chemicals, dissecting organs, learning how to type blood, etc.
