ABOUT AMBASSADOR

Student instruction is centered around the maturing of each Christian in his/her faith or the witnessing of Jesus, the Son of God, to those who do not believe.
 
Within this context, we provide an academic education that furnishes the skills necessary to further the student’s education and to function in our society. These skills include college preparation and the ability to grasp, analyze, and communicate varied concepts clearly and articulately. This education is provided while looking at the individual needs of the student within the educational goals of the school.
Ambassador Christian Academy is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Biblical Worldview


Underlying everything we do at ACA is a Biblical worldview. This means that we put ourselves under the authority of the Scriptures. Because of this, we consistently proclaim the gospel to our students by our words and actions. Ultimately, we endeavor to equip each student with a knowledge of Christ, and cultivate any spiritual growth that results. In addition, all of our curriculum is Biblically based to further each child’s knowledge in every academic area with a biblical worldview.




Individualized Instruction


What does this mean? It means that each child is allowed to learn at a pace that works for him or her within expected standards and goals set by the teacher. The teacher takes a very direct, hands-on role in facilitating each child’s learning and mastery of knowledge. Every day, our students have clear, measurable learning goals in each subject from Kindergarten through 12th grade. This individualized approach to teaching has several unique advantages over the traditional lecture driven classroom, including: -High individual accountability which develops a mature personal responsibility. -Constant instructor/student interaction, so feedback is provided to the student immediately. -Reading and research skills are constantly and consistently utilized. -High emphasis on collection, organization, and analysis of data with note taking, notebooks, and planners used daily.




Mastery


Because instruction at ACA is individualized, your child is able to use the most of his or her time developing the skills to learn in order to master each subject. We do not move onto the next lesson or step until the student has a confident grasp of the knowledge required for mastery. Not only that, the student successfully learns to learn.




Small Class Size


Our class size for all classrooms is 16 or fewer students. This allows our teachers to get to know and attend to the needs of each student, as well as to gain quick insight into the dynamics of every class in order to keep the classroom running smoothly.




Multiple Grades in One Class


We have structured the multilevel nature of our 1-3 and 4-6, and 7-12 grade classrooms with intention. Besides each student having the potential to be with the same teacher for several consecutive years, our classrooms are fertile ground for children to go from learning the ropes to taking leadership roles.




Behavioral Standards


A well-managed and fruitful classroom takes more than just correcting bad behaviors. While there are specific measures taken to curb negative attitudes and actions, we invest a great deal of energy into fostering respect and acts of kindness toward one another. Because of this, our classrooms become like a team, with the goal that each child would have in mind, “I have my classmate’s back!”





STATEMENT OF FAITH

The Holy Scriptures


We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and the New Testaments, to be the verbally inspired Word of God, written by men in God’s control, inerrant and infallible in the original manuscripts and the final authority in the faith and life. We accept the grammatical-historical system of interpretation of the Scriptures, and accept the historical record of the bible as accurate.




The Godhead


We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who are identical in essence, equal in power and glory, and possess precisely the same attributes and perfection.




The Person and Work of Christ


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became without ceasing to be God; that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that He might redeem sinful man. He accomplished this redemption by voluntarily giving Himself as a sinless substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, thereby satisfying God’s righteous judgment against the sin of the elect. He gave proof that He accomplished that redemption by his bodily resurrection from the grave. He then ascended to the right hand of His Father where He intercedes on behalf of His people.




The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit


We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine person who convicts the world of sin; that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead; that He places all believers into the one true church, which is the Body of Christ; that He indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of redemption, and bestows spiritual gifts upon them.




The Condition of Man


We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, in innocence and without sin. But in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited the guilt of his sin, a sinful nature, becoming spiritually dead and alienated from God so that man is a sinner both by nature and by choice. Man, of himself, is incapable of remedying his lost and depraved condition.




Salvation


We believe that salvation is the gift of God’s grace given to all who God has elected to salvation. It includes all that God does in saving the elect from the penalty, power and presence of sin and in restoring them to a right relationship with God. As such, it is solely the work of God from the initiation to completion. The regenerating work of the Holy Spirit is the cause not the result of the believer’s saving faith. It cannot be gained by good works, but is a free gift for all who put their trust in Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross. All who trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are forgiven and saved from their sins and made righteous before God and are born into the family of God. God’s purpose for saving His elect is so that they bring glory to Him by their lives.




Security, Assurance, and Responsibility


We believe that all saved, those in who God has accomplished His transforming work of grace, are kept by His power and thus, are secure in Christ forever. This assurance, however, is not the occasion for sin, for God in holiness cannot tolerate persistent sin in his children, and in infinite love He corrects them. True faith in Christ is expressed by a fruitful, God-pleasing life that endures until death.




Sanctification


We believe that God, in the Scriptures, has given us everything pertaining to life and godliness. This includes the salvation from the penalty of sin and just as surely the provision of sanctification (separation) from sin. Sanctification from sin affects both the positional and practical aspects. Positional sanctification is a result of the continuing work of the Spirit using the Word of God to provide nourishment for growth in maturity in Christ. While the process of practical sanctification is assured by the Word and the Spirit, it is yet imperfect in this life. There is some element of corruption in every part of the fallen nature that is the source for the war between the flesh and the Spirit. Spiritual growth occurs as believers feed on the Word and are in fellowship with other believers for encouragement and service.




Ordinances


We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ instituted two ordinances to be observed by all believers as a matter of obedience, not as a condition for salvation: Water Baptism, subsequent to the believer’s profession of faith, and the Lord’s Supper.




The Eternal State


We believe that at death the souls of those who have trusted Christ for salvation pass immediately into His presence and remain there in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the body of Christ’s coming for the Church, when the soul and the body will be reunited. We then shall be with him forever in glory. We also believe that at death the souls of unbelievers remain in conscious misery until the final judgment when the soul and body will be reunited and cast into the lake of fire, not to be annihilated, but to be separated from God forever in conscious punishment.




Eschatology


We believe, according to His promise, that Jesus will physically return for His people. This truth has been revealed to provide the believer comfort and encouragement in his life.
