                                    A Classical Christian Education




Grace Academy exists to serve parents by equipping students with tools for a lifetime of learning so that
they are intellectually prepared, spiritually firm, and can think and reason within the framework of a
biblical worldview. We believe that God has given parents responsibility for the training, education, and
nurturing of their children (Deuteronomy 6:10). We are committed to a classical model of education
with high spiritual and academic standards and a strong emphasis on the “basics.” We strive to teach all
subjects as an integrated whole with the Scriptures at the center of our curriculum and with the ultimate
goal of developing well-educated students who know and love God.

The purpose of the education we offer is to give each student the “tools for learning” by focusing on
method as well as content. We believe that our children will be better able to serve God, understand life,
and succeed in their personal futures if they are equipped with a solid base of knowledge grounded in
Biblical truth. We want our students to learn “how to learn” and become lifetime learners.

The Trivium
Our instruction will be utilizing methods from the Classical Education model. The design of Classical
Christian education is to produce a student with the mental discipline and ability to read an in-depth
book, write discerning, thoughtful essays on the book, present lectures or debates on the contents of the
book, and evaluate its contents in light of the Christian worldview. Its goal is to teach the student to
think clearly and express himself persuasively. To accomplish this, we will be teaching children
according to three stages of learning and development: the Grammar, Dialectic, and Rhetoric stages.
These stages make up what is known as the Trivium. The word Trivium comes from the Latin prefix Tri
meaning “three”, and the Latin root “via” meaning the way. The word Trivium literally means three-
way, referring to the three ways of learning that coincide with a child’s cognitive development as he or
she matures.

   I. Grammar Stage (primary grades)
         During this stage, children compile information in an organized framework (or “grammar”)
         for each subject area. Children love to chant, recite, and memorize. Emphasis on repetition
         and rote techniques corresponds to a child’s ability to easily memorize and learn by rote
         during this phase of development. During these elementary years, we are focused on the
         fundamental facts and rules of each subject, the building blocks, the “a, b, c’s” of each core
         subject including phonics, English grammar, spelling, reading of the classics, Bible study,
         math facts, and penmanship. This is the time to fill them full of facts, such as the
         multiplication table, geography, dates, events, plant and animal classifications-anything that
         lends itself to easy repetition and assimilation by the mind. The material is presented to the
         students in an assortment of techniques to reach all types of learning styles. Through the use
         of varied repetition, a strong foundation is laid as the building blocks for future learning.

   II. Dialectic Stage: (middle grades)
          During the second stage, the Dialectic stage, the child begins to understand that which he has
          learned and begins to use his reason to ask questions based on the information that he has
          gathered in the grammar stage. It is during this stage that the child no longer sees the facts
                                                   2
           that he learned as separate pieces of information, but he starts to put them together into
           logical relationships by asking questions. No longer can the American Revolution merely be
           a historical fact, but it must be understood in the light of the rest of what the child has
           learned. For example, how can one reconcile the fact that some of the founding fathers can
           be held up as great men even though they were also slaveholders? Through more in-depth
           and careful discussion and examination of evidence, the students learn how to question, how
           to dialogue, and how to discern. This leads to the development of stronger critical-thinking
           skills. Formal logic is taught as a class. It is also integrated into each subject matter enabling
           students to learn the rules that guide sound thinking.

   III. Rhetoric Stage (upper grades)
           With the grammar and dialectic stages serving as building blocks, children in this stage
           progress toward articulating their views. Children are learning how to think out loud: they
           become concerned with expressing themselves and how their ideas are coming across to
           others.

           Although our students will enter the Rhetoric stage after graduating from Grace Academy,
           our educational goal is to prepare our students to enter these upper grades ready to learn how
           to 1) communicate clearly in written and verbal form, 2) thoroughly research all subject
           areas, 3) see interrelationships between subjects, 4) and apply a biblical worldview to daily
           living and future learning.

By recognizing and utilizing these stages throughout the child’s development, we are cognizantly
working with how God designed children, and their ability to learn.
Core Curriculum
Our K-8 grade levels will be focused on teaching methodologies rooted in the Grammar and Dialectic
stages. The span of our curriculum across these grade levels will include:

       Reading / Literature           History/Social Sciences        Physical Education
       English Grammar                Geography
       Bible                          Latin (3rd – 8th)
       Mathematics                    Science
       Logic (7th, 8th)               Art

During the K-5 Grammar stage, the curriculum focuses on teaching the facts, rules, techniques and
fundamentals of each subject. To facilitate accomplishing this, a portion of each day is devoted to
language learning (90minutes per day), and math (60 minutes per day). The Classical mind takes history
as its organizing outline of study, also integrating all subjects together to better understand the world
around us and God’s active role in it.

Reading/Literature: An intensive phonics program is used to equip students in grades K-2 with the
transferable principles of spelling and reading in all grades. Students are exposed to entire works of
quality literature by reading or being read to. Literature is taught to expand the student’s imagination
and creative potential as he/she delights in the great classics. Studying the classics helps to develop
critical thinking skills and provides a model and inspiration for thinking and writing. Outside daily
reading from a prescribed literature list is part of this program.



                                                     3
English Grammar: English is taught daily using a fun, yet rigorous, program. We seek to equip every
student with the skills for quality writing, including spelling, grammar, style, and clarity. A major
emphasis will be placed on good writing by requiring students to write often and correctly in the
different subject areas.

Bible: The Bible is taught as the inspired Word of God. Students are encouraged to develop a personal
relationship with Christ while internalizing biblical principles and character qualities. Portions of
Scripture are memorized at every grade level. We teach all subjects from a biblical worldview. Ancient
civilizations such as ancient Rome, Egypt, etc. will be studied to better clarify and understand God’s
world. A weekly chapel for all grades also gives us a time to learn more about God’s work as well as
how to praise and worship Him as a school body. Each day begins and ends with a time of prayer.

Mathematics: Math concepts and computation skills are stressed, demonstrating God’s order and
immutability in Creation. Students are trained to interpret and solve mathematical problems and transfer
them to real life situations. A foundation is established for the further study of higher mathematics.
Social Studies/History: A biblical and providential view of God, man, and government are introduced.
The importance of each individual in God’s plan is recognized as students study at each grade level on
specific occurrences and individuals, building a scope and sequence of historical events from creation,
ancient civilization, the Middle Ages to the 21st. Century. Numerous sources such as journals, historical
fiction, primary source biographies, and information books are used to tell the history of world cultures.
U.S. History, present world cultures and current events are a part of the curriculum as students compare
and contrast the changes that have taken place in this world and what has caused these changes or lack
of change in our world knowing God has been involved in it all since the foundations of the world.

Logic: (Grades 7 and 8) Logic is taught as a formal class as well as integrated in all subject matters.
These are the benefits:
   1.) Systematic study, which provides a beginning thinker with a set of rules that, will help him to
       decide whether or not he can trust the information he is receiving.
   2.) Basis for discernment and critical thinking.
   3.) Helps students to think more analytically and enhance math skills.
   4.) Gives the mind logical tools for organizing facts and images of the world.

Geography: The purpose of teaching geography is to help the student gain a sense of dominion over
his/her world. Basic geography skills are introduced at all grade levels, including the use of maps,
computer programs and globes.

Latin: As part of our classical education, starting in third grade, we teach Latin. We see the study of
this classical language as providing a discipline and a base for success in other subjects. These are some
of the benefits of studying Latin:

   a) Latin reveals immense insight into the roots of the English vocabulary and lays the foundation
      for learning other romance languages. (80% of the English vocabulary comes from Latin and
      Greek, and over 50% of English comes from Latin alone.)
   b) The study of Latin trains the student in precision thinking.
   c) Latin connects the student with our nation’s Greco/Roman cultural heritage.
   d) Latin enables the student to appreciate literature.
   e) It is the basis for all romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish, etc.)
   f) Helps us to better understand our own language as well as foreign languages in conjugating
      verbs, etc.
                                                    4
Science: Students learn about God’s character as revealed throughout natural creation and through the
laws which govern it. The various disciplines of science are taught, emphasizing hands-on activities and
methods of observation and research. The sciences will be covered to meet the three strands of the
California State Framework – physical sciences, earth sciences and life sciences at each grade level.

Art: We seek to teach the basic fundamentals of drawing, design, and color and to introduce the
students to the masters’ works of Western culture. Artwork will be integrated into other subjects
whenever possible.

Health/Physical Education: Biblical patterns of behavior through activities requiring cooperation,
teamwork, and sportsmanship will be stressed. Physical fitness, health and nutrition topics as well as
learning individual and team play in athletic activities will be emphasized.

As a Christian school, we recognize that God has given boys and girls, minds and bodies that enjoy
recreation and play, games, competitions and sports, art, music, drama and dance. We will seek to
instruct and provide opportunities for students in many of these areas, while also encouraging families to
participate in various community, recreational, athletic and arts programs.

The Kindergarten Classroom:
Our approach to the kindergarten classroom recognizes that reading, writing, listening, and speaking are
not disembodied skills. Each skill exists in context and in relation to one another and must not be taught
independently of each other. The kindergarten year is geared toward integrating and developing these
skills in a manner pointing toward success with future curriculum and Trivium stages. Learning
objectives focus on physical, social, personal, and cognitive development in an encouraging
environment that fosters a love for education. Our kindergarten program is an academic program which
gives students the foundation for beginning reading.

                         Grace Church of Napa Valley
                              Statement of Faith
The foundational spiritual beliefs of the leadership of Grace Church of Napa Valley are expressed below.
Concerning Faith, we believe:

    1. THE WORD OF GOD
       We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired in every word and without error in the
       original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in
       all matters of faith and conduct (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21). We believe the Bible is sufficient
       for every situation of life and ministry (2 Timothy 3:17; II Peter 1:2-4; John 17:17) and that it is complete
       with no further revelation being given by God for His Church (Revelation 22:18-19).

    2. THE TRINITY
       We believe that there is one living and true God (Deuteronomy 6:4), self-existent and self-sustaining. God
       eternally exists as one in nature (John 10:30), yet in three persons: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each
       deserving worship (John 5:23; 9:38; Matthew 28:19; Acts 5:3-5); and equal in every divine perfection.
       We believe God’s ways, judgments and moral character are infinitely perfect, above us and beyond our
       scrutiny (Isaiah 55:9-11; Romans 11:33-35). We believe God is perfectly righteous (Psalms 11:7), true
       (Romans 3:4), omnipotent (Revelation 19:6), omnipresent (Psalms 139:7-9), loving (I John 4:7-8), holy (I
       Peter 1:15-16) and omniscient (Isaiah 44:7; 46:10). We believe He is eternal, and created out of nothing
       all things that exist, simply by the word of His power. We believe the universe, including man, came to
       exist in a fully developed state as a result of this creative act of God, not by any process of evolution.
       (Isaiah 42:5, Genesis 1-2).

    3. GOD THE FATHER
       We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal being who is sovereign over creation, providence and
       salvation (Psalms 103:19; Romans 11:36). He concerns Himself mercifully with man, hearing and
       answering prayer (Luke 11:9-13) and saving from sin all who come to Him through faith in Jesus Christ
       (John 3:16; Titus 3:4-7).

    4. JESUS CHRIST
       We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who, being equal with the Father (John 5:19,22; 8:58),
       condescended to take on human flesh (Phil 2:6-8), being born of a virgin (Matt Luke 1:34-35), living a
       sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), and dying for sinners as their substitute on the cross enduring God’s wrath in
       their place (Galatians 3:13; 1 Peter 2:24; 2 Corinthians 5:21). He arose physically from the grave three
       days later and ascended bodily into heaven (Luke 24:36-43; Acts 2:31-33; Romans 4:25; Acts 1:9-10).

    5. THE HOLY SPIRIT
       We believe the Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4), possesses all the attributes of God including omniscience
       (I Corinthians 2:10-13), omnipresence (Psalms 139:7-10), and eternality (Hebrews 9:14). He was sent
       from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:8-11), to
       regenerate (Titus 3:5), sanctify (II Thessalonians 2:13), seal (Ephesians 1:13-14), and empower (Acts 1:8)
       all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ
       (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 6:19).

    6. MAN
       We believe man was directly and immediately created by God (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7,22). Though
       originally created in God’s image, through Adam’s sin man became sinful by nature and by choice
       (Romans 5:11-12; Ephesians 2:3; Romans 3:10-18). As a result of this sin he is separated and estranged
       from God (Ephesians 2:1-3) and under His condemnation (Romans 3:9-20; 6:23; Hebrews 12:26; Romans
       2:5-6; Ephesians 5:6; Revelation 20:11-15).
                                                         9
7. SALVATION
   We believe there is only one way to know and be accepted by God and that is by a repentant faith which
   receives Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, relying solely on what He did on the cross in paying the penalty
   for their sins (John 3:16; 14:6; Galatians 2:15-16; Acts 2:34-36; 1 Cor. 15:1-5). We believe that
   justification before God is a legal act of God in which He declares a believing sinner to be perfectly and
   eternally righteous before Him based upon the righteousness of Christ credited to the sinner at the
   moment of their faith in Christ, apart from any work or virtue of man (Romans 3:27-28; 4:1-5; Titus 3:5;
   Ephesians 2:8-9; Philippians 3:9; Jude 24).

8. THE CHURCH
   We believe all who have put their faith in Jesus Christ are members of Christ’s Church and we welcome
   their fellowship (Ephesians 2:11-3:6; 1 Corinthians 12:12). We believe the purpose of the Church and
   each Christian is to glorify God (I Corinthians 10:31) by loving others as Christ loves them (Ephesians
   5:1-2, 25-27; John 13:34-35), living godly lives (Matthew 5:16; 1 Peter 3:15), and by making disciples
   through evangelizing non-believers and teaching them to obey Christ (Matthew 28:18-20). We believe
   all Christians have equal access and spiritual privileges as priests to come to God in prayer through Jesus
   Christ, and equal affection from God as His children (I Corinthians 12:4-7; I Peter 4:10-11; Hebrews
   4:14-16; I Peter 2:8-9; John 1:11-13).

9. THE ORDINANCES
   We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the
   Lord’s Supper (Matthew 28:18-19; Luke 22:14-20). Baptism is a picture of union with Christ and a
   public identification with Christ as Lord and with His Body, the Church (Acts 2:38-42; 11:47-48; Romans
   6:1-4). The Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death (I Corinthians 11:23-
   33) and is only for believers (I Corinthians 11:28-32).

10. LAST THINGS
    We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will return physically and visibly to the earth (Acts 1:9-11;
    Matthew 24;29-31) to establish His kingdom (Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 19:11-19; 20:4-6). We
    believe there will be a bodily resurrection of all people: the saved unto eternal life (John 6:39; Romans
    8:19-23; Revelation 20:1-5) and the unsaved to judgment and eternal separation from God in hell (Daniel
    12:2; John 5:39; Revelation 20:11-15; II Thessalonians 1:8-10; Matthew 25:41). At death the believer
    immediately passes into the presence of the Lord (Philippians 1:23).

           a. Grace Academy is an integral and inseparable ministry of Grace Church. As such, Grace Church
                is the governing authority of the Academy and all of its philosophical and educational guidelines.
           b. The Statement of Faith of Grace Church will provide the theological framework for all of our
                instruction and the discrimination basis for our school policies.
           c. As parents/guardians, we will remain cooperative in supporting the doctrinal integrity of the
                school.
           d. As parents/guardians, we have an obligation to uphold and support the academic goals of the
                school, require our child to perform all duties and responsibilities given by teachers, and to give
                our child encouragement in the completion of all assignments.
           e. Grace Academy emphasizes parental involvement, by both parents, and participation in
                meaningful ways with school activities, events and educational goals.
   2. We do hereby state that we have made a thorough investigation of the school’s program, curriculum,
       discipline, dress code, etc., and we agree to positively support the school in the coming year.
   3. We agree to share any complaints and/or negative comments only with the people involved. Unresolved
       issues will be taken care of by using the school’s chain-of-command as identified in the Parent/Student
       Handbook (available online or through the school office).
   4. We understand that the standards of Grace Academy do not tolerate profanity, obscenity in word or
       action, disrespect to the personnel of the school, or continual disobedience to the established policies of
       the school (see Parent/Student Handbook), and that such actions may result in student dismissal.
   5. We understand that the school will not administer corporal punishment.
   6. We understand that we are responsible for and commit to pay any assessments made to cover damages to
       the school, including, but not limited to, book damage or property damage.
   7. We will support the school by involvement in Parent-Teacher Conferences, Open House, Parent-Teacher
       Activities and other school-sponsored meetings and activities.
   8. We understand and will fulfill our financial commitment to full and timely payments for the educational
       services the school is providing for our child.
   9. We agree to pay all legal and court costs if we feel it necessary to bring legal action against the school
       and lose the court decision.
   10. We understand the school’s legal obligation, as mandated reporters, to communicate occurrences/
       incidents of suspected child abuse to the appropriate authorities.
   11. We understand that failure of the parents or child to comply with this Agreement, the established
       regulations, discipline, parental commitment, or failure to meet financial obligations will forfeit the
       student’s privilege of attending Grace Academy.
