The curriculum for the Seventh-day Adventist educational system provides learning experiences that meet not only the general needs, but also the specialized needs related to the unique abilities, interests and expectations of each learner. Content standards were designed to encourage the highest achievement of every student, by defining the knowledge, concepts, and skills that students should acquire at each grade level. With common learning as its core, we also educate our children and youth in terms of their physical, spiritual, mental, and for service to the community and world. Broad areas of curriculum include religion, communication skills/balanced literacy, physical and life sciences, mathematics, social studies, health-safety and physical education, technology, practical applied arts and fine arts. These content areas include character building, witnessing-service, physical-spiritual-social development, career education, and a work ethic. At the secondary level, the curriculum is designed to serve a wide range of interests and abilities, each meeting rigorous national standards, providing critical preparation for college and the best possible preparation for future success.
The Appalachian Christian Academy family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.
