Who We Are
All Saints Christian Academy is a community of Christian families that facilitates contemplative, intentional learning, with a particular emphasis on Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. Using the Christian classical tradition, we seek to develop a child’s educational experience through the lens of God’s Word and the beauty of God’s creation. We seek to bring together like-minded Christian families in a liturgical community context offering high-quality, creatively taught classes, punctuated by celebrations in learning, inspiring students to live out worship and virtuous action in community.
All Saints Christian Academy plans on opening this Fall 2019 and will be accessible by those living in Moore, Lee, Harnett, and Cumberland counties. As a blended model, ASCA will host on-campus days of instruction with at-home lesson plans provided by knowledgeable and classically trained instructors. Our on-campus days will be Tuesday and Thursday with an optional Friday twice a month. Parents will receive lesson plans for the at-home days while the on-campus days will include morning convocation, class instruction, and several other interactive opportunities. ASCA is committed to partnering with Christian families to provide an affordable classical Christian education.
Our schole group will meet at Countryside Presbyterian Church, 127 Ponderosa Road, Cameron, NC. For more information or to sign up for an upcoming information meeting, please contact Kristin Rizzo at 910-420-0324 or by cell phone at 201-417-0481 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Classes will be offered to students in four different stages of learning: Lower Grammar (K-2), Upper Grammar (3-6), Dialectic (7-9), and Rhetoric (10-12).
We exist in order to partner with Christian families in discipling our children for Christ by providing an affordable classical Christian education while offering restful learning opportunities, reflective contemplation, and the pursuit of Christian virtues.
Classical education is a liturgy of love and should be aimed at forming a certain type of person: wise, virtuous, and eloquent. We use the time-honored, unified, and fully integrated liberal arts curriculum and pedagogy to develop a child’s character and to nurture his humanity. The curriculum, employed within a community of like-minded homeschooling families, is a survey of the best spiritual, intellectual, and cultural traditions of our Western Christian heritage.
Education is a spiritual endeavor and we desire to be a community of practice— ordering our time together, our gathering spaces, and our habits—so that our children learn to love what is lovely. At All Saints Christian Academy, the starting and ending point for all studies is the Word of God. We trust that by avoiding the temptation to use classical curriculum for utilitarian ends, God will inspire our children’s minds, tune their hearts, and transform their souls. Because of His faithfulness, they will learn to love His Truth and to seek His Truth in love.
Excellence in academics need not be frenetic. As an official Scholé Group, we encourage one another to teach our children from peace, with the absence of anxiety. Instead, together we pursue enjoyable and memorable learning. In community, we dig deep into classical subjects, while also allowing valuable time for our students to contemplate and discuss the big ideas they have discovered within them. Providing opportunity for such deep engagement results in enjoyable, permanent learning which, we believe, instills a life-long love of learning.
Statement of Faith
- There is one sovereign God in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
- There is one book of truth: the Bible. It is God’s written revelation to man, authoritative, reliable, inerrant and without need of any other document(s) to complete its message. It is the only standard by which faith and practice are to be measured.
- The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.
- Man is created in the image of God. Through his relationship to Adam, man is a sinner by nature and does himself sin. He is thus alienated from God, his neighbor, and the world. All are sinners.
- Jesus Christ is the only Savior of sinners, the only way to the Father. He died as a substitute for sinners and was raised from the dead so that they might be reconciled to God.
- Eternal life is a free gift that is received through faith in Jesus alone. Eternal life is neither deserved by anyone, nor can it be earned by good deeds.
- There is one body: the church, with its many parts acting in unison.
- We believe that marriage is intended by God to be between a man and a woman, and that gender is determined by God at conception.
