Curriculum Philosophy

The philosophy of Yorktown Christian Academy is based on the premise that man's ultimate purpose is to glorify God (I Corinthians 6:19, 20; 10:31). Yorktown Christian Academy exists to help each student to reach his full potential by guiding him in developing spiritually, morally, personally, socially, and academically (Luke 2:52). The faculty and staff recognize that only when a student accepts Christ as Savior and yields to His Lordship can he realize his own unique potential (Romans 10:10-13).

Education and learning are biblical imperatives (Deuteronomy 6:, 7; Proverbs 3:1-9); therefore all instruction at Yorktown Christian Academy is biblically based (Deuteronomy 4:2-9). The specific content grows from the following: 

  1. God's mandate at creation for mankind to have dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:1; 26-28), requiring learning in the areas of language, mathematics, the physical and natural sciences, technology, and the fine arts.
  2. The hostile environment resulting form the fall of man (Genesis 3:9-24), intensifying his need to understand more deeply all of the curricular areas, as well as the social and health related sciences and the study of God's written Word.
  3. The command for Christians to evangelize the lost and to disciple believers (Matthew 28:18-20), further elevating the need to master all of the above areas.

All subject areas are taught from a biblical perspective and correlate with state and national standards.
