APOSTOLIC CHRISTIAN ACADEMY (ACA), in addition to being an institution of education, is a channel through which the Lord Jesus Christ can be more clearly revealed. However, in this context, it is necessary for us to present a clear statement of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible. We should combine with that statement a substantive and definitive school purpose.
Our school purpose is to offer a Christ-centered program which will effectively instruct the student in our basic Christian heritage, lead him to a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and help him develop the qualities of Christian character and Christian leadership. A superior academic program with emphasis on the subjects, meaningful experiences, and problem solving is offered at ACA. A strong reading program is maintained.
Careful attention is used in curriculum planning, using the ABeka Book Inc., so that our academic program satisfies the requirements of the Tennessee State Board of Education (as published in their Rules, Regulations and Minimum Standards), and the requirements of the other points of our school purpose. Our curriculum and standards each year reflect age-appropriate challenges that prepare our graduates to be admitted to college upon graduation. Our curriculum plan exceeds standard school requirements. Classes such as Career Exploration, CollegePrep, Physical Education, Bible, Arts and National Christian School Competition are included in their general studies.
