Language Arts Philosophy

God is the author of all creation.  Colossians 1:16-17 says, "For by Him all things were created:  things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him, and for Him.  He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together."  The Language Arts Department of Yorktown Christian Academy believes by faith the purpose of man is worship, honor, and glorify God.

In light of this purpose, Language Arts endeavors to help students find their God-given voice to communicate with clarity, confidence, and commitment. Language Arts will teach students how to speak effectively, write skillfully, listen attentively, and read with discernment in all mandatory and elective courses.

From Pre-Kindergarten through the eighth grade, the department is committed to promoting academic excellence from the biblical mandates given to us in the Word of God. The department's diverse curriculum exposes students to foundational skills enabling communication in a manner producing results which honor and glorify God.
