We are a Classical Christian Homeschooling Tutorial
The Bible teaches in Proverbs 4:7, that wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, we should get wisdom. Proverbs 9:10, says that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. ACTS desires to help parents who are homeschooling cultivate wisdom in their children. We believe that a Classical Education that is Christ-Centered may be an optimal way to achieve this.
We are Classical because our methods of teaching are based on the Trivium, which applies to the three stages of a child’s cognitive development: The Grammar Stage, Grades 1-6; Dialectic/Logic Stage, Grades 7-9; and the Rhetoric Stage, Grades 10-12. Applying the Trivium to the Three Stages of a child’s cognitive development acknowledges that the Lord designed us to have specific traits or abilities at particular times in our lives and takes advantage of His design.
We are Christian because we use God’s truth as revealed in the Bible as the standard from which all things are measured, whether it be a situation during the day, an event in history, or the actions of a character in literature. Using the Bible as the standard from which all things are measured, develops a Worldview that is Biblical and Christian.
We integrate the subjects of the curriculum to help reveal the Lord’s sovereignty over everything and everyone in His Creation. We believe a Classical Christian Education trains a child’s heart and mind, cultivates wisdom, and glorifies the Lord in the process.
