The love of Christ is shown to each child and can be witnessed in all aspects of their educational and social experiences. Each student in our school is treated as an individual and met at their academic and spiritual level.Winchester Academy is committed to providing a non-denominational foundation of Christian truths and values without integrating doctrine specific to any one denomination. This school is part of the body of Christ; therefore, it guides its students to find his or her special place in the body of Christ. As an educational institution it is our intent to guide students to discover and grow in this place.We are committed to fostering the developmental needs of our children through a rigorous curriculum, within a loving and nurturing environment that is based upon a Christian foundation. We recognize that all children develop at different rates, and we will teach to these individual needs. Winchester Academy has high expectations for all students, in accordance with the belief that all children can learn. Challenging material is presented and teachers assess understanding using a variety of methods.At the preschool level, objectives in the areas of social/emotional, mathematics, language, and gross/fine motor skills have been developed through a hands-on, developmentally appropriate curriculum. It is the intention of the school to expose preschool children to enriching learning experiences by providing them opportunities for growth in each of the objective areas.At the elementary level, the Virginia Standards of Learning are used as a baseline for all subject areas. Curriculum is focused on engaging the student in the academic process with an effort to encourage them to become lifelong learners. Our nurturing teachers focus on building an academic foundation that encourages children to take risks.At the middle school level, the Virginia Standards of Learning are the academic baseline for all subject areas. The program fosters students academically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually through a challenging student-centered curriculum and varied enrichment programs, provided by a motivated team of creative professionals.We encourage all of our students, regardless of their age or grade, to appreciate art and music, begin to learn a second language, and be exposed to up-to-date technology through computer use. We believe that this exposure will help them to become positive and productive members of our diverse society. We emphasize the importance of self-discipline, respect for others, and development of self-concept, through Christian values. We teach the essential skills of problem-solving, critical thinking, and peer interaction, which better prepares them for the life-long learning process. With the support of our parents and the community, we help our children to understand God’s grace through our example.
