The curriculum at Abington Christian Academy is more than merely a set of textbooks or exams. It includes all of the tools used to convey information, spark imagination, build skills, and stimulate thinking. We place a high priority on learning facts, definitions, rules and skills – what we consider to be the tools of education. It is our goal to “fill the toolbox” for the students to use later.
Students in the earliest grades focus especially on the subjects of reading and math- two subjects which must be mastered early on to ensure success later in the curriculum.
Grammar is introduced beginning in 1st grade, introducing students to the parts of speech and basic sentence diagramming and classification. Latin is introduced in the 3rd Grade, which helps to enrich their English vocabulary (50% of English words come from Latin) and reinforce their study of grammar.
Our students also study history, science, spelling, handwriting, Bible, art, music, and P.E.
"The goal of Classical Christian education is
to cultivate wisdom and virtue
by feeding the soul on Truth, Goodness, and Beauty
by means of the liberal arts and Great Books,
so that the student, in Christ,
is better able to know, glorify, and enjoy God forever."
