DHA's Academic Program is a weekly 2-day program that employs certified Christian teachers who will work with students on Mondays and Wednesdays from mid-August to May. Teachers will academically challenge and support students through guided instruction, group collaboration, and presentations. They will also provide student assignments that are to be completed on Thursday and Friday of each week. Parent educators will find encouragement and support as they oversee student assignments. They will also appreciate the accountability students receive as they stay on target each month. Students in grades K through 8th grade will study Literature Arts (Reading, Writing, Grammar, Spelling), Math, History/Geography, Science, and enjoy a brain break with a PE class. Parents are the primary teacher and will determine the final grades for students.

TEACHING TEAM


God has individuals with awesome skills, experience and the heart to work with children, ready to teach for the DHA Academic Program this next year! All of our teachers are certified teachers, but several have additional degrees, skills and experience! We are planning and praying for each student!

CURRICULUM

We want students in K-8th grade to be encouraged, motivated, and challenged academically through the year with both text-book and hands-on learning. K-2nd will be utilizing Horizons, Abeka and Little Minds curriculum. 3rd grade and up have a variety of curriculum they use such as Bob Jones, Abeka, Sonlight novels and more. Working in groups and partners helps with accountability and encourages students to stay on track and complete the assignments on time. They will have opportunities to make notebooks, poster presentations, speeches, work in groups, and more. Parents and DHA partner in the curriculum cost.  Families are given some books to purchase, while DHA provides additional support.

Grades K-2: Horizons, Abeka and Little Minds at Work Program- 

Horizons- is a brightly illustrated, engaging workbook curriculum filled with consumable lessons and hands- on activities. Designed with fast-paced lessons, this Christian curriculum uses a spiral learning method to help your student master concepts through the process of introduction, review, and reinforcement.

Little Minds at Work- A hands-on, fun, curriculum that encompasses high level standards and has rubrics to ensure students are retaining information. Students will create lots of hands-on activities, including personalized books.

Abeka- is a solid curriculum that has provided a good framework for years.  This engaging and colorful curriculum will help students feel confident in their learning.

Grades 3-8: Students will be using a mix of curriculums from trusted resources such as Abeka, Bob Jones, and Sonlight whole novels.

Parents are the primary teacher and will determine the final grades and track Missouri Law hours for students. DHA staff is available if you have any questions. Parents also have the ability to limit workload or maximize the assignments, depending on the individual student and their needs. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with MO law. https://hslda.org/content/hs101/MO.aspx We will also be available to assist you through the year.

TYPICAL DAY

DHA Academic students meet as a group for chapel each morning to say the Pledge of Allegiance, sing worship songs and listen to student led prayer before heading to class with their teacher. The younger students, grades K through 2nd, will bond with their teacher for the day. Grades 3-8 will have multiple teachers that specialize in their fields. Younger students will have a short recess time, while all students will get a 50 minute brain break during PE class! Classes are from 9am to 3pm, Mid-August to May.
