Troy Christian implements an inclusionary model for delivery of support services for students with identified disabilities. Students eligible for special education services are supported by intervention specialist staff, who assist in designing accommodations and necessary modifications to curriculum and instruction within the typical classroom. In addition, intervention specialists and certified teachers of mathematics and language arts host “Skill-Building Sessions” for students with disabilities who are experiencing gaps in foundational concepts. Supports for clarification of task and assessments are also provided by our intervention specialists  and math / language arts teams. TCHS has formed an intervention assistance team, designed to help teachers identify specific instructional and learning impediments demonstrated by their students and to apply research-based intervention strategies.

Our goal is to always provide the very best academic opportunities for our students. Conflicts will occur, but we are committed to work with you for a solution. God has amazing plans for each of our students and our desire is to make sure each student is prepared as he or she works toward that plan. 

Our Student Course Book will be available the end of January with the scheduling dates and process. Our Guidance Department will be visiting grades 8 -11 in January and February to explain the process and help students prepare for making course selections.  In the January Parent Page, look for information on our online classes, Early College Program, and additional opportunities for students to meet their individual interests and needs. Another resource is the HS Grid worksheet for planning.

Our Guidance Department is available to assist you and your student as we partner to make the academic experience positive and relevant as we prepare our students to be S.A.L.T. in their world now.  Let us know if we can be of service.

FROM PRESCHOOL TO HIGH SCHOOL

The technology courses are arranged to provide a natural progression of skills and concepts. Through various projects, the students are provided the means of integrating these skills into other areas of their studies and lives.

Students in our Preschool through 6th grade start becoming familiar with technology in Preschool and continued through 6th grade. Our upper elementary school classes use MS Office application programs to enhance their classroom learning. Students may create PowerPoint presentations of the book they read or chart stock market results using Excel.

Our Jr. High students have the opportunity to advance their technology proficiency by taking courses that introduce them to the basics of Microsoft Office Applications. We also provide keyboarding for those students who did not have the benefit of being a part of our elementary school technology program.

In our High School Computer Application I course students learn the fundamentals of Microsoft Office Word, PowerPoint and Excel. In Computer Application II our students further their knowledge and become advanced users of Microsoft Office programs, including Access software for personal and educational use. Media Arts & Design, Programming for Game Creation & Design, PC Repair/A+, Computer-Aided Design, Web Design & Development and Business Math using accounting software are few of the other courses made available to our students. We also provide independent on-line study courses such as Visual Basic for those students who are interested in perusing computer programming. The Technology Department is also charged with providing support to Troy Christian Schools' numerous E-Learning courses developed in-house for our students.

VISION/MISSION:

Our vision is to assist Christian parents in discipling their own children in godliness and in the proper development and use of their abilities in order to honor God, benefit the Body of Christ, and bless and evangelize people in their circles of influence.

DESCRIPTION:

Home education is a lifestyle, not just a pursuit of courses. While philosophies, objectives, and methodologies may vary among homeschoolers, the mammoth proportions of the task induce a lifestyle. While we cannot help families with the entire scope of their calling, we hope to support and encourage them by providing leadership, resources, and opportunities.

We will help parents plan courses that will lead to graduation, encouraging and counseling through the course work. Students may enroll in courses equaling up to two credits on campus each year and may also enroll in modular classes designed especially for our home school students. These students are also invited to participate in the extra-curricular activities, events, and sports that our school has to offer.

Our system is based upon documentation, which is fundamental to credibility. We provide parents and students with curriculum guides that lead them through their classes and the necessary texts and materials to accomplish the courses. We ask that each family maintains a lesson planner, and we can show parents how to use it. The planner documents the work agenda, the work completed, and the time spent working. The student is responsible to develop cumulative portfolios (notebooks) of work in all courses. We show parents how to determine and record grades for each class. The planner, the portfolios, and the grade sheets comprise the documentation.

Home school parents are looking for opportunities. They want to be part of the Body of Christ, sharing their gifts with others and receiving the benefits of working with other talented people. We want homeschoolers to take advantage of the programs and the resources we have to share. In turn, we are blessed by what our home school parents have to share with others: their character, encouragement, friendship, insight, and teamwork. The blessings flow full circle.
