9TH GRADE THROUGH 12TH GRADE
Alliance Christian Academy provides an academically rigorous program, through integrated studies and research. Moving beyond the introductory facts toward reasoning and more formal logic, this instruction teaches critical thinking and rhetoric skills.
Chapel at ACA is a foundational thread of who we are as a family community and illustrates our desire to grow our students to be character witnesses for Christ in the coming generations. We believe that, in partnership with our parents and families, we are able to not only lead students to Christ, but also lead them to develop a strong relationship with Him as they walk their path to learning who they are in Him, how they love Him, and where they are called to serve for Him.
Rhetoric School Chapel at ACA utilizes strong curriculums from Youthministry360 as well as other reputable youth programs. These programs are edited to suit the needs of our students where they are and to facilitate the depth of learning we strive for in our Rhetoric students. For our class time each day, the goal is to partner with parents in fostering ownership over their faith and in strengthening their hearts for service, with emphasis on how and whom they serve. Our purpose is to provide a strong foundation in Christ that our students may hold onto as they walk into the next phases of their lives. Each day is dedicated to a specific types of worship, including student-led live worship, high-energy worship, or time in individual prayer. We strive to lead our Rhetoric students beyond character education and into application points for their faith. We provide written materials designed to foster development of this discipline, including devotionals for families at home and small groups on campus.
In addition to the students' daily lessons and worship, our Rhetoric students meet with students in third- and fourth grades once a month and lead them in small groups assisting them with Scripture memory. Our Rhetoric students pray with the younger students, provide a safe environment for the younger students to share and recite their Scriptures, and play small icebreaker games together.
