Chapman Christian Academy
Our Institutional Education Program
Chapman Christian Academy elementary uses the Abeka Book curriculum. In the 7th through 12th grades, this curriculum is used for eighty percent of the classes, supplemented by the Bob Jones curriculum. If we see something in another curriculum that is impressive, it may be used.
Elementary grades are kept to between twelve to sixteen students per class, and junior high and high school classes seldom exceed twenty students.
Most students are in age appropriate classes. There is a fast track with exceptional students being offered advanced courses. At the other end of the spectrum, students that need some extra help or work more slowly than others do receive some modifications if deemed necessary. Both of these anomalies are only conducted under close supervision of teacher and parents.
Formal teacher meetings are conducted every two weeks where child's progress or lack thereof is discussed. Every day each teacher is contacted briefly after school for a daily oral report on how the day went, any problems, etc. Parents are contacted when deemed necessary. Report cards are issued every six weeks for elementary grades and every nine weeks for high school. All papers in the elementary are sent home to be signed and returned.

Our History & Philosophy
Why Choose Us
The basic philosophy of Chapman Christian is to provide a traditional education in the minimum amount of time. A Christian curriculum is used and a Christian world view is taught.
Child safety is the number one priority, coupled with highly qualified teachers working with relatively small amount of students per class. This ensures that each student is treated as an individual.
Chapman Christian Academy attempts to ascertain each of the student's individual needs through standardized testing, evaluation of grades from former schools, if any, and personal interviews with students and teachers. A program is then implemented that will hopefully help the child to attain their personal potential.
Chapman Christian Academy offers classes from K-4 to 12 th grade. Classes run from 7:45 a.m. - 12:00 noon Monday through Thursday. Chapman Christian Academy offers pure academics without lunch, study halls, home economics, physical education, etc.
Chapman Christian Academy hires only the highest quality people to work with the students that attend these schools. Although teachers are not required to be state certified, all high school teachers are degreed and professional people. Elementary teachers must either have a teaching degree or at least two years experience teaching in the elementary level. All teachers participate in in-house training that takes place during the year.
