Over 40 years ago, A Beka Book began with the mission of providing Christian schools with high-quality textbooks and teaching aids to help each school fulfill its educational goals. The hundreds of traditional educational materials from A Beka Book have been developed and refined over a period of 50 years and as a result, A Beka Book is recognized throughout the nation as the standard of excellence in the publishing of textbooks and other scholastic materials.
The A Beka Book approach to education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable. Our materials reflect sensible theory that is firmly anchored to practicality. These publications are built upon a firm foundation of absolute truth, sound scholarship, and are written by dedicated and talented scholars well grounded in the practical aspects of classroom teaching.
Our curriculum provides a stimulating and challenging experience for each student. Progress is tracked to ensure that each child is meeting their potential. At Grow Academy, we recognize that no two children learn in exactly the same way, so our teachers employ a variety of teaching methods to engage every student. Communication and cooperation with parents are key to making the most of a child's education. Consistency at home and at school reinforces the child's learning and helps with retention. Thus, in addition to challenging each child to be their best in the classroom, teachers communicate with parents so that the learning can continue at home. We also incorporate programs, such as music lessons, to keep children interested in their daily lessons and expand their knowledge and skills.
Building a child's self-esteem at a young age is essential to his or her success later in life. At Grow Academy, we treat every person with dignity, respect, and understanding. It is our philosophy that by following the Golden Rule and treating others as we would like to be treated, we teach the students to respect and appreciate themselves and others. It takes a thousand compliments to make up for a single criticism, so there is no room for unkind words or harsh tones. Rather, we teach children to communicate with adults as well as their peers by using language that informs without causing harm.
It is imperative to teach a child healthy habits at a young age because it provides the foundation for the rest of his or her life. At Grow Academy, we believe that this requires healthy eating habits and regular exercise. Our students have ample outdoor play time everyday to stretch their legs, run, and play. We also incorporate regular programs, such as ballet and karate, that make physical activity fun and interesting to our students. Our menu features healthy foods to ensure students receive the nutrients they need to fuel their bodies.
