We at RCOA also believe that academics are an avenue that has the ability to develop Christian character. The development of good study habits, goal setting, and personal integrity is paramount.
The academic policies of RCOA are founded upon the following principles:
Responsibility – All persons in our school have specific responsibilities to fulfill towards themselves and each other. God charges parents with the ultimate responsibility to train their children. Deuteronomy 6:7.
Individuality – We recognize that not all students have equal aptitudes or interests, yet all are equally responsible to be faithful in using what God has given them.
Accountability – As a ministry that supports home learning families, we, and the parents, are accountable to God for the training of our students as far as our scope of influence extends into their lives.
Discipleship – Although we are individually responsible for our own actions, we are able to shape one anothers’ lives for good through correction, exhortation, and encouragement.
In addition to each family’s personalized K-9 Christian Foundations and 10-12 Christian Studies courses, students enrolled with RCOA are able to bring Christian Perspectives integrated into the British Columbia curriculum through the use of Christian Resources in all subject areas. Our goal is to facilitate quality education and to develop biblically creative and constructively thinking young people; young people who are prepared for vocational callings and other God-given responsibilities in life.
