ViewPoint Christian Academy is a ministry of ViewPoint Christian Church.  A detailed statement of faith is available for review at the church's website.  ViewPoint Christian Academy has enrolled students from various denominational backgrounds.  It is our practice to major on the major doctrinal issues and minor on the minor issues so that students from various denominations are not only comfortable in our school but challenged to grow in their walk with the Lord as well.

Educational Philosophy

   ViewPoint utilizes curricula that are BIBLE-BASED and that follow the philosophy of INDIVIDUALIZATION and MASTERY.  This is a fresh and revolutionary approach to education.       
   The student is diagnosed and assigned an individual education plan that is suited to their specific needs.  It is not based on age or chronological grade, but to the individual.  The plan is then assigned to the student in daily, attainable goals.  Attainable goals will facilitate the student’s continued progress and success.
   The curricula is designed for students to master incremental learning skills.  Successful comprehension of the educational material, not time passing or student age, is the determining factor for progression to the next level.

Five Laws of Learning

§  Students must be at subject levels where they can perform.

§  Students must set reasonable goals.

§  Students must be controlled and motivated.

§  Learning must be measurable.

 

§  Learning must be rewarded.

ViewPoint Christian Academy only utilizes high-quality, Bible-based curriculums for all of its subjects.  We follow an individualized, self-instructional format and have chose Christian curriculums that subscribe to this philosophy. Our focus is also on full competency of the subject matter and have established minimum testing requirements that ensure mastery is achieved.  

Our individualized curriculum approach ensures that each student learns at their individual level and rate. In order to best accomplish this goal all of our students are first given a diagnostic test to discover their performance levels in all subjects.  Any learning "gaps" that may be present are first addressed so that students can successfully operate at their specific performance level. 

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: (Isaiah 28:10)
