Bible Baptist Christian Academy K-12
Bible Baptist Christian Academy has been open since 1985. The school is located in the picturesque Perth Hills in the suburb of Mt Helena, 5-7 minutes from Mundaring. If you are looking for a Kindergarten to year 12 school with a Biblical world view, then this is the school for you.
The school uses a "back to basics" approach in literacy and numeracy, emphasising times tables, phonics and English grammar. This back to basics approach combined with the latest teaching strategies gives the students a balanced education.
The students are provided with goals, tailored to his or her strengths and weaknesses, using ACE resources. Students are placed at a level appropriate for their academic skills.
The Mastery based learning programme at the Christian Academy does not allow students to progress unless they have “mastered” the concepts being taught. Students must achieve 80% in mastery based units before they can proceed. A student who is struggling will receive one-on-one tutoring with their teacher. All students receive feedback and direct instruction.
The Christian Academy is a family-oriented K-12 school. Many of the parents help in the school as teacher assistants and provide hands on learning experiences for the students. This provides the parents with the opportunity to be involved in their child’s formal education.
The school has small class sizes with a 1:12 teacher student ratio. If a student struggles in a particular area, he will not get left behind. He will received one-on-one tutoring as he progresses through challenging concepts. The Christian Academy is committed to maintaining its small class sizes.
Students learn a Biblical world view. They are taught to be kind, tolerant, honest, considerate, respectful, punctual, appreciative and much more. The Science curriculum teaches that God made the world in six, literal days. In Australian History, students are taught our Christian heritage and in Literature, students read about Christian heroes.
The Christian Academy has other programmes that provide a rich learning environment for the students. In Drama the school puts on an end-of-year production for the parents at award’s night. The school participates in InTerm Swimming to compliment our Sport’s programme. In Music, the school provides the students with piano lessons. French and German is taught in Language classes, and ICT is integrated across all learning areas.
If you are looking for a family oriented school, with small class sizes and a Biblical world view, this is the school for your children. Students can enrol at the Christian Academy any time during the school year and in any grade from Kindergarten to Year 10.
Extensions are completed for the building, including two new classrooms, a library and disabled toilets. As part of the National Partnerships Literacy and Numeracy grant, the teachers are gaining valuable professional development and the school plans for purchase new literacy and numeracy resources. The school also has a computer grant to purchase more laptops for high school students and a languages grant to purchase French and German resources.
