In all its levels, programs and teaching, Vail Christian Academy is based on these foremost truths from God’s Word: The authority, authenticity, and reliability of the Bible; the sovereignty of God; the creation of man in the image of God; the moral principles of the Bible; the centrality and authority of Jesus Christ and a personal relationship with Him.
A CLASSICAL EMPHASIS
We embrace a classical approach to education by incorporating formal classes in Latin, Logic, and Classical Literature in various stages of our program. Classical teaching methods range from class lectures, to debates, to Socratic (discussion-oriented) teaching. Independent learning skills are sharpened at all grade levels.
Emphasizing concrete thinking and memorization in grade school and analytical thinking in the middle grades is a time tested method of teaching that helps students master the skills of learning and helps them understand and think, with greater depth, about the world around them.
