Word Of Life Christian Academy Reviews
You won't find any better teachers ANYWHERE! Every teacher has a degree in education/the subject area and they are CALLED to teach with excellence. Most of all, they REALLY care about your kid. It's a family-like environment where everyone knows your name and the educational experience is individualized. The academics are very strong now since they strengthened the curriculum and they have won a number of academic competitions including first place at the Geography Bee (advancing to Atlanta)science fairs, spelling bees, the district art contest, etc.
EXCELLENT new leadership and a strengthened instructional program combined with SMALL CLASS SIZES and an AUTHENTIC Christian environment maximizes the learning experience. A World Language Foundations program equips students with language structure as well as skills for relating inter-culturally.
Their partnership with the University of Richmond provides computer and technology skills that will equip students for their calling into the future. Latin has been integrated which is not only found to increase SAT scores and reading comprehension (since it's English word origins), but it's a fantastic base for learning other languages later. Saxon Math develops critical thinking and Shurley English teaches them to WRITE! The teachers are not only CALLED into teaching, but K and above have a Masters level or college level Degree in Education. They are very accessible after school to speak with you or to provide additional assistance or clarifications.
Hands-on science has been strengthened. They provide after school Odyssey of the Mind (problem solving competitions), a geography club which prepares for the Geography Bee with the Association of Christian Schools International, and we're looking forward to a stronger middle school sports program next year!
The best part is that they start each and every day with an student-led time of prayer and exceptional morning worship which helps the students and staff focus and ask God's guidance for the day.
Your child will be blessed at Word of Life Christian Academy as mine have. God uses those incredible teachers to prepare your child to live out the call that God has placed on his or her life. As God word tells us, "when they are fully trained, they will be like their teacher." That's why I value Word of Life teachers so much and thank God they have been in my children's lives.
