PLEASE NOTE: ACA is currently working on the course offering listing for the 2018-2019 school year. It is our goal to expand our course offerings to further meet the homeschooling needs in our area. Check back with us in December for updates.
ACA currently offers both academic and enrichment classes for students in 6th-8th grade, with the vision to grow to include high school level courses as well. ACA students may elect to enroll for the whole school day (5 course hours), or select to enroll for either 4 or 3 course hours. As ACA emphasizes community, all students are to be present for lunch hour (noon) regardless of the number of classes selected. Our 2017-2018 classes are below.

ACA Recommended Course Sequence
ACA’s Recommended Course Sequence (RCS) of classes is noted below. Although students are not limited to the RCS, those students following ACA’s RCS will be given first priority into classes. As ACA limits our class size to 15 students, enrollment in an ACA course is based upon the RCS and then upon the date a student registers.
|Science*: Intro Chem/Physics||Science*: Intro Chem/Physics Science||Science: Physical Science|

General Course Information…
ACA divides subjects between home and class. However, ACA understands that the responsibility for the education of a child rests with the parents. Our classes are designed to assist, not replace, the parent in homeschooling. However, we strive to assist home educators by keeping the bulk of course work in the classroom. Our academic course pages will note the estimated time a student should expect to work on the subject outside of class. Our elective classes are designed to have little to no homework outside of class.Academy teachers are carefully selected on the basis of Christian faith and character, experience, gifting by God in teaching, degrees and certifications. Our classes are limited to 12 students to enable our instructors to provide an engaging learning environment.
ACA does offer the option of standardized testing in May. (Additional fee)
