“And He took a child and put him in the midst of them, and taking him in His arms, He said to them, ‘Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me…’ Mark 9:36-37 (ESV)

 

Who We Are. 

 Go Christian Academy is a ministry of First Baptist Church and is open to all children on a non-discriminatory basis. Our program is child centered and Bible based, using a wide variety of developmentally appropriate experiences for every child. At Go Christian Academy we want to offer parents a school for their children that is safe, affordable, built on academics, and spiritual learning, all centered on Jesus’ love.

We believe at Go Christian Academy that the Preschool and Elementary school years are the beginning of a student’s foundation for learning and that is where the love of learning begins. With that, it is our goal as educators to make sure that each student develops that love of learning and is well balanced academically, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

It is our desire to welcome each student as Jesus taught in this verse. “He took a child and put Him in the midst of them, and taking him in His arms, He said to them "Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me.."  Mark 9:36-37 (ESV)

Our Curriculum

The curriculum used by Go Christian Academy is WEE Learn for our ones – three-year-old classes. WEE Learn is produced by LifeWay Christian Resources. The WEE Learn Curriculum is designed to offer learning activities which are directed toward language, reading readiness, math, and social skills. This program is designed to help Pre-Kindergarteners develop as Jesus did – physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially (Luke 2:52).

We also use the ABEKA curriculum for writing and phonics, and Hands on Math for our Pre-K 4 classes. We use the full ABEKA curriculum in our Kindergarten classes including the Bible curriculum, and the ABEKA and Bob Jones University Christian curriculum for the 1st grade. 

The ABEKA and Bob Jones curriculum provides all subjects; math, science, social studies, language arts, writing, reading, phonics, and art. Both curriculums cover all Georgia Standards and have been approved by the Georgia Accreditation.

The Bible curriculum teaches the stories from the beginning of the Bible starting with Genesis and the creation and goes all the way through the New Testament teaching the life of Jesus and the life of Paul by learning scripture verses, with scripture questions and answers, and prayer.

Additionally, we offer Music and Movement and playground or gym time for our Ones – Kindergarten classes. Pre-K 4 and Kindergarten also receive Spanish and Technology.

Our 1st grade specials will include Music and Art, Technology and Spanish, and PE. Each student will have access to their own laptop that will be used for research and testing. They will visit the church library and be able to check out books weekly. Our church library is updated with age appropriate books and promotes young readers to develop the love of reading. Go Christian Academy will also offer the nationally recognized Accelerated Reader program for Kindergarten and 1st grade.

Our Teachers and Staff

Go Christian Academy Teachers are dedicated in loving and nurturing each student in their classroom with an encouraging and caring atmosphere. We consider ourselves at Go Christian Academy as one big family where all teachers have a genuine care and interest in their students, and work and pray over them to succeed and grow spiritually and academically. The Teachers at Go Christian Academy receive yearly training classes and up to date information to help them be more successful in the classroom.  We want to ensure that the learning of God, Jesus, the Bible, the church, self, community, world, and creation, along with embracing the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual foundation of each child is met, along with all the academics that are taught. 

Throughout the year we have “in-house” Field trips where different programs and events will be shared with the students in all classes. For example, Curious Moon Puppets, Barn Yard Animals, and Atlanta Zoo, along with an array of programs, parties, and other events.

Our Kindergarten and 1st grade will also attend two off-campus Field Trips a year that will fall in line with their unit of study.

Uniforms

At Go Christian Academy 1st grade and up will be required to wear a basic uniform. We believe this will help with positive student behavior, academic performance, and overall success. Not only do uniforms eliminate a distraction for students, they allow teachers to focus on academics as well.

It is our prayer that you will come along side us, and let us partner with you in helping build those foundations for your child.
