philosophy

The school is an extension of the home. Students, parents and teachers must work together to establish good learning habits. We expect parents to be involved in the learning process. 


Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. -Proverbs 22:6


This is a charge to parents, not to teachers. As a parent, you are the single greatest influence on how well your child does in school. As teachers at ACA, we will come along side you and help steer your child toward a successful future.

beliefs

1. We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error and the infallible rule of faith and practice. (Isaiah 28:13, Nehemiah 8:8, John 17:17, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4:12, 1 Peter 1:23-25, 2 Peter 1:3-4 and 1:21)


2. We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; Who created all, upholds all, and governs all things. (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 44:8 and 48:16, Matthew 28:19-20, John 10:30, Hebrews 1:3)


3. We believe in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, his substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth. (Isaiah 7:14, Micah 5:2, Matthew 1:23, Mark 16:19, Luke 1:34-35, John 1:1-2, 8:58 and 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 1 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 1:8, 1 John 1:2, Revelation 1:8)


4. We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, Who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; (Acts 1:8, 2 Corinthians 3:18, John 16:8-11, Romans 8:26, Romans 15:13,16, Hebrews 9:14), We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (John 6:13, 14:16-17 and 16:8-11, Romans 8:26)


5. We believe that all people are sinners by nature and choice, falling short of God’s standard and breaking His commandments – and therefore are under God’s righteous judgment. Yet God saves and gives new life to all who come to Him in repentance and faith, trusting in the Person and work of Jesus Christ, through grace alone. (Romans 3:23, Acts 3:19, Acts 20:21, Ephesians 2:1-3, Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 John 2:2, John 3:16, Matthew 11:28, Revelation 22:17)


6. We believe in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell and that all those who place their faith, hope, and trust in Jesus Christ will spend eternity in Heaven with the Lord, while those who reject Jesus’ free gift of salvation will spend eternity separated from the Lord. (Psalm 9:17, Matthew 5:3, 5:22, 18:9 and 25:31-34, Mark 9:42-49, Luke 12:5, John 3:18, Hebrews 12:23, 1 Peter 1:4, Revelation 14:10-11 and 20:11-15)


7. We believe that God created man and that He created them male and female. As such He created them different so as to complement and complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:4-6, John 4:16-18, Romans 1:18-32, I Corinthians 5:11, 6:9-11, 6:18-20, 7:1-3 and 7:8-9, Galatians 5:19-21, Ephesians 5:3-7, 1 Timothy 1:9-11)
