The Problems With Common Core
The trouble with the Common Core is not primarily what is in these standards or what's been left out, although that's certainly at issue. The bigger problem is the role the ...
Students come to us at various stages in their education and for various reasons, be it a desire for a Christian education, a feeling of being ignored, bored, or not sufficiently challenged in their previous school placements. At Trinity Christian Academy we meet the students where they are at in each of their subjects, not judging or criticizing. We work with them to address their needs and concerns, then challenge them to expand their horizons and reach for the stars to achieve higher goals than they thought they could, and invariably they do, because our teachers care, and encourage every student to do their very best and not settle for anything less.
Approaches to Learning
Trinity Christian Academy is dedicated to the ideal of providing a high quality Christian education to our students in each field of study, and in all grades: English and Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Foreign Languages, Fine Arts, Physical Education and Health, Government and Civics, Humanities, Art and Music, Drama, and many, many more.
We are also firmly committed to providing this quality education in an environment of Christ-centeredness where students learn about God, the world He created and all of His creation. All students are required to attend our opening clergy-led Chapel service in the morning and our student-led Chapel service at the end of the school day. In addition, regular Bible and religion classes are mandatory for all students. No specific denominational teaching is provided.

Facts About Private Schools
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."
Common Core and Data Collection
A particularly troubling aspect of the Common Core scheme is the emphasis on massive data collection on students, and the sharing of that data for various purposes essentially unrelated to genuine education. U. S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has said:
Hopefully, some day, we can track children from preschool to high school and from high school to college and college to career . . . . We want to see more states build comprehensive systems that track students from pre-K through college and then link school data to workforce data. We want to know whether Johnny participated in an early learning program and then completed college on time and whether those things have any bearing on his earnings as an adult.
Facts About Private Schools
Students in religious schools enjoy a significant academic advantage over their counterparts in traditional public schools and charter schools, according to findings from a metaanalysis of 90 studies on the effects of schools conducted by William Jeynes, senior fellow at the Witherspoon Institute in Princeton, New Jersey, and a professor at California State University, Long Beach.
The study also found that faith-based schools have narrower achievement gaps and better student behavioral outcomes.
Jeynes calls religious schools “the best hope for American education” and says the nation should “rethink its strategy of espousing charter schools and overlooking the benefits of faith-based education.”
