Showing students we care about them helps us create a nurturing and supportive environment where learning can flourish. Our teachers are guided by 2 Peter 1:3-11 and as such, they strive to make every effort to add to their faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge, and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love, so that they can remain effective and productive as they affirm their calling in Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1: 3-11). Students learn very quickly that their teachers care about them, and in collaboration with parents, they are always willing to collaborate in establishing patterns of communication between the student, the school and the home.
Our Teacher Qualifications
In addition to the required bachelors degree, our teachers go through a certification process that systematically trains them to become masters in classical Christian educational philosophy and methodology. This training includes teaching and training in the philosophy of Christian education and biblical mandate that serves as a foundation beneath all Christian education. One of the resources used in this training is Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Tedd Tripp. We seek to cultivate in our families a sense of partnership and responsibility in the education of their children. Jointly, we strive to partner in becoming a community that is well-informed about the goals of our classical and Christ-centered approach. We work together to pursue biblical principles for educating and developing children (Proverbs 22:6).
A true classical, liberal, civic education recognizes with Lincoln that if we know where we are, by knowing where we have been, we shall then know “whither we are tending.” (A Classical Education for Modern Times, Terrence O. Moore)
ACCS Schools consistently achieve higher than public, religious and other independent schools. On average, students who receive a classical Christian education achieve 186 points above the median score on SAT tests. They also demonstrate a higher confidence and knowledge when speaki9ng on critical issues.
Furthermore, their reading, writing and math scores are significantly higher than the national average. Several nonpublic and parochial schools in Minnesota are now choosing to change to a classical curriculum.
