"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light".
1 Peter 2:9
Ekklesia Academy gets it’s meaning from the Greek new testament word, “Ekklesia” which means, “A called-out assembly or congregation of believers who God has called out of the world and into His wonderful Light.”(1 Peter 2:9). Ekklesia is our private, on-site school that is accredited with the Advanc-ED. It exists to provide high quality, Christian education to the students living at the Ranch. We strive for high performance in Academics, Behavior, and Christian Character. The students are encouraged in and made aware of their true potential and abilities. Most importantly, we strive to introduce our students to the love and freedom Christ offers them.
We use the ACE - Accelerated Christian Education and School of Tomorrow as our base curriculum. ACE has a strong focus on character and Bible training while providing rigorous standards of education. Along with ACE we include the theme, “From the Field to the table.” With the plan to teach additional subjects on animal care, farming, horsemanship, personal finances, car care, job seeking and training.
The school also offers language classes through Rosetta Stone, another individualized learning program often used by Fortune 500 companies for their employees. Rosetta Stone offers many languages that our students can learn.
Many students who come are 1-3 years behind in school. We analyze all incoming students to determine their true academic level and assess and fill in any learning gaps that may exist. Our individualized curriculum allows us to not only do this, but it also allows a student to complete 1-1/2 to 2 years of work in 1 school year, eventually catching them up to their chronological grade level, while ensuring mastery before moving forward.
