Homeschool


 

The Academy is only offered to those families within our fellowship that desire to home educate their children.

Purpose & Philosophy
The Lord charges parents with the ultimate responsibility of instructing their children in all areas of growth and development (Deut. 6:6-9, Prov. 22:6, Eph. 6:4). For those families who have chosen to obey this admonition in the form of home education, Chino Valley Christian Academy has been established. Our goal is to provide a structured support system to aid parents in obtaining the highest quality education for their children in terms of spiritual and academic excellence. Through home education, parents can have greater control over the character development and spiritual training of their children.

Our Independent Study Program allows for one-to-one teaching with individualized curriculum tailored to each student so that he or she can learn comfortably at his or her own rate. Parents are responsible to purchase curriculum that best suites their student’s educational needs.

Three areas of home education that are continually stressed in our program are family support, parental education, and family accountability.

Family Support
Fellowship among member families is necessary to uphold and encourage one another, as independent studies can put strains on families, financially, emotionally, and socially. “Two are better than one…for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion.” (Ecc. 4:9-12)

Parental Education
Committed teachers always need to look for opportunities to improve their teaching skills. To ensure the strength, unity, and effectiveness of our program, we hold periodic Parent/Teacher Meetings. “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man is he who listens to counsel.” (Prov. 12:15)

Accountability
Member families are expected to meet all school requirements and make consistent progress toward attaining set educationalĀ goals.
