Home Schooling : A Christian Educational Alternative

THANK YOU for your interest in our LANDMARK CHRISTIAN HOME SCHOOL. You are among the growing number of parents, nationally and worldwide, who are recognizing the need for Christ-centered educational programs for their children. Many parents are searching for an educational alternative which develops their child socially, morally, and spiritually, .... as well as academically.

Whatever your reason, we at LANDMARK CHRISTIAN SCHOOL can provide you with an individualized Christian value-based academic curriculum which has been proven world-wide. It is in use in over 7000 schools, 100 countries, and more than 50,000 Home Schools.

We can begin your child's educational plan with diagnostic tests to determine his or her academic levels of achievement in Math, English, Reading, and Spelling. From these tests and records, an educational program will be prescribed to meet your child's specific needs; rather than his or her chronological age or grade level.

The Administration believes that LANDMARK CHRISTIAN SCHOOL has been established to assist Parents in their task of "training up the child in the way that he should go."

Contact us today by mail or phone to take more control in educating your child in our Home-School program.

LANDMARK CHRISTIAN SCHOOL is one of the more than 120 Category IV Schools recognized by the State of Tennessee to provide Academic and Christian education.
We use the Accelerated Christian Education Program - A.C.E. and have been operating since 1990.

FEATURES OF OUR A.C.E. CURRICULUM HOME-SCHOOL

Our K-12 CURRICULUM is written by Christian teachers and educators from a Bible-based moral climate of absolutes. Parents with High School Diplomas or G.E.D.'s can be involved in their children's learning, without needing to "prepare daily lesson plans".

DIAGNOSTIC TESTING determines what ability level the student has actually reached academically in each subject. This is where he should begin working for successful progress.

SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL means the student can do most of the lessons independently with a minimum of Teaching, and without the need for detailed daily lesson plans.

SELF-PACED allows students at all different levels of ability and motivation to make progress through the academic material at their own natural rate of learning.

MASTERY LEARNING is a principle that a student is ready to learn skills and concepts when he has mastered previous skills and concepts. An 80% minimum score is required on each quiz and test to complete the unit.

LEARNER- BASED systems of learning put the emphasis upon what the student is learning rather than upon what the teacher is teaching. The teacher is responsible for supervision of progress, with a one-to-one, teacher-student learning climate.

EVERY STUDENT CAN SUCCEED because the academic material is easily adapted to the ability of most students, ...from the below average to those who are gifted. All students are challenged.
