We hold to the truth that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant,eternal Word of God. Every part of our curriculum is interpreted and applied from a Christ centered, Bible based perspective. We couple this with teachers whose sincere desire is to impact lives for eternity. All coursework is performed in the student’s home environment and returned to the school facility for assessment. Hope Christian Academy utilizes a nationally recognized curriculum.
Hope 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, HCA 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. HCA 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, HCA 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 curriculum used by Hope Christian Academy were developed within the framework of the vision and mission of Hope Christian Academy of and aligns well with the schools 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.
Our 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.
A passing grade of 70% is required on all tests. If this grade is not achieved, the coursework will be returned to the student for correction (no additional charge is applied).
