Alliance Christian Academy is a unique private Christian school that utilizes a university-type schedule and a teacher-parent integrated instructional approach. This approach is designed to produce a high level of academic achievement while enabling strong ties between parents and their children.
We are a University Model School, which allows us to partner with families in the education of our students. The professional classroom instruction of a teacher and the caring at-home mentoring of a parent are combined into a single, unified, college-simulated program.
How It All Began
In the spring of 2004, two couples met to discuss the need for a new alternative with regard to education in their community. Their initial desire was to find a preschool that blended strong Christ-centered, biblical teaching with excellent academics. Thus began the journey, with the support of a local church, and the idea quickly gained traction.
The school founders recognized parents' unique responsibility to be actively involved in the total education of their children. Prayerfully, the founders agreed to work together to start a new school that offered a new and different approach: one that incorporated positive aspects from other educational models while embodying its own special distinctions.
The result of these efforts was the formation of Alliance Christian Academy, a private school with plans to serve students in Pre-K through 12th Grade from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and its surrounding areas.
What We Believe
The sole basis of our belief system and worldview is the Bible. We believe that Scripture, in its entirety, originated with God and that it was given to us through the instrumentality of chosen men. We hold that Scripture is infallible and inerrant in the original manuscripts.
We believe that there is one true, holy God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of deity and the characteristics of personality.
Jesus Christ is the eternal second Person of the Trinity, who was united forever with a true human nature by a miraculous conception and virgin birth. He lived a life of perfect obedience to the Father and voluntarily atoned for the sins of all mankind by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone, He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died. He ascended to heaven and sat down at the right hand of the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own. He shall come again to earth, personally and visibly, to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
We believe that salvation is a gift received only by a personal trust in Jesus Christ, who was man's substitute for sin. This gift of unmerited grace is given by God without regard to human works or goodness. All those who accept this gift by simple faith are eternally secure in Him.
We believe that the Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and make the saving work of Christ available to men. He convicts sinners of their need for Christ, baptizes them into the body of Christ, imparts new life to them, and seals them until the day of redemption. Each believer is called to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit. In so doing, his faith will be manifested in works pleasing to God.
We believe the Scripture calls believers to gather together to devote themselves to worship, prayer, the teaching of God's Word, the observance of baptism and Communion as the sacraments established by Jesus Christ, fellowship with one another, and outreach to the world.
We believe that man was originally created in the image of God but fell into sin through disobedience to a divine command, bringing all mankind condemnation. Man's nature, therefore, is such that he is totally unable to please God. Unbelievers will be separated from God into eternal condemnation. Believes will be received into eternal communion with God and will be rewarded for works done in this life.
UNIVERSITY MODEL SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL
A University-Model School International (UMSI) is an educational program that takes the best attributes of home schooling and combines them with the best attributes of traditional, Christian education. In doing so, the UMS preserves and maintains the God-ordained parent-child relationship, while offering students the opportunity to achieve a high degree of academic excellence.
The primary goal of the UMS is to provide quality, cost-effective, college- preparatory education, accomplished in a way that gives parents more time for imparting the faith and values they hold precious. In our University-Model School program, students attend school three days a week and are in their home (the “satellite campus”) two days a week. While in the satellite classroom, students follow teacher-designed assignments under the direct supervision of their parents (the “co-teachers”).
The methodology of education provides excellent academics in preparation for college, while providing the best possible environment for training up competent men and women of exceptional character who will make a positive difference for Christ in the next generation.
