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).
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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, 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.
