Our goal is to limit classes to no more than 11 students in grades PreK4-8th to provide individualized attention and adequate oversight. Most of our teachers hold a teaching degree and grades Pre K4 – 8th are taught directly from our in-house teachers. Our high school students have the option to utilize BJU Press’s online Christian Classroom which is taught from BJU’s qualified teachers in an online video format or simply work through their own homeschool curriculum. With our curriculum, students will use traditional student textbooks and student activity worktext/manuals. We WILL NOT be using e-books or e-workbooks. We purchase a license for online access to the video teaching through a single facilitator login which while allow an unlimited number of students to view the teaching in class at Christ Point Academy.
Our teachers/facilitators will develop lesson plans, oversee and assist with assignments during class, and grade work either individually or as a class, and administer and grade tests which would be given back to the parents. The parents will then review the child’s progress and discuss the grades with their children as desired. Although we will give quarterly progress reports, it is ultimately up the parent to assign the final grade to be submitted to their cover school for records (if required).
Teachers/Facilitators will be hired by the school and we will search for the following criteria when hiring a teacher……..
- A deep desire to serve and please the Lord.
- A love for children and a desire to see each of them succeed.
- Teaching experience. Most of our teachers in grades PreK4-8th hold a teaching degree.
