We teach our students to use the Bible as the frame of reference by which we interpret and define reality. We help our students develop a Biblical worldview from the arts to zoology and everything in between. For our students and staff, the Bible is a lamp to their feet and a light to their life’s path (Psalm 119:105) as they learn “to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” (11 Cor. 10:5) so that in everything, “Christ might be preeminent.” (Col. 1:18) Click the colored link below to help you compare us to other

We are delighted that you are interested in Impact Christian Academy where we do school “Differently”. While some may perceive that a private Christian school is a proverbial bubble isolating students from the “real world,” ICA takes seriously the biblical charge to “take captive every thought, to make it obedient to Christ,” and we share the philosophy with C.S. Lewis, that it is better to “irrigate the deserts” by training students to be discerning and shrewd in their dealings with the world. It is the same training method that Jesus used with His own disciples.

Students who come to the Arrowsmith Program are of average to above-average intelligence but are having difficulty learning academic and social skills efficiently and independently. The Arrowsmith Program addresses a wide range of specific learning difficulties (referred to as learning disabilities in North America) such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, auditory and/or visual processing disorders, attention difficulties and non-verbal learning difficulties. The Arrowsmith Program is also designed for individuals who do not have identified specific learning difficulties but are challenged with issues such as organization, processing, problem-solving, communication, memory and independence.
Foundations & Frameworks is a uniquely designed instructional reading program developed at Briarwood Christian School. Since its introduction in 2001 Foundations & Frameworks, which is informed by the science of learning and the brain, has been implemented in an increasing number of national and international schools. Studies using standardized measures support its benefits to learners indicating growth in reading comprehension, vocabulary, and critical thinking. Foundations & Frameworks incorporates research-based strategies into an instructional framework enabling the best practices of reading instruction.
The Learning Unleashed Program includes the use of mobile devices, digital textbooks, challenge and problem based learning projects, publishing and presenting student work, collaboration, and innovation. Learning Unleashed includes tools to enhance what we know from brain research on how the brain learns so that the learning experience of our students is more engaging and varied resulting in deeper understanding and longer retention. The LU program also teaches students to use the tools they will be using in college and at work.
