Calvary Christian Academy or CCA is accredited by Accelerated Christian Education/ACE, Lewisville, Texas and has been awarded the highest level of recognition having earned "Model Status." CCA utilizes the Accelerated Christian Education or ACE curriculum.
The ACE program is used by over 7,000 schools in 125 nations. It is progressive individualized curriculum that begins with kindergarten and ends in grade 12. Each student entering the Academy is tested first, then placed in the curriculum at their level of ability. If a student completes their testing at a lower level than the grade they are coming in from, they will be placed in the curriculum or Paces at their prescribed level determined by the testing; and then will be given "gap" Paces to reinforce the knowledge that they did not retain or "learn" in their previous schools in an effort to bring them up to their age/grade level at CCA.
High School credits are earned by completing six Paces in each given subject area earning 1/2 credit (normally) per semester. A minimum of 24 credits is required to receive a High School Diploma from CCA. All High School students will be given the opportunity to take the MME test from the State of Michigan.
Passing on to the next grade level is based upon the completion of the required work, not by attendance alone.
Home based services include diagnostic testing, stanford testing, tutoring, beginning phonics, current events (grade 7-12), music lessons and spanish. You as the parent can decide which services would best meet the individual needs and budget of your home school.
