In order to meet increased enrollment and break ground on its $4.6 million dollar expansion, Appomattox Christian Academy has established a satellite site at the Ministry Center of Liberty Baptist Church located at 1709 Church Street in Appomattox (ACA-LBC). Effective with the 2017-2018 academic year, this satellite location will be home to the Appomattox Christian Academy Rhetoric School, Grades 9-12. In March, ACA announced its plans to expand the current campus located at 1916 Redfields Road. The expansion, set to begin in the fall of 2017, will include additional classrooms, a new gym, and a state of the art vocational center.
ACA to open satellite branch at Liberty Baptist Church
"ACA continues to be humbled by the support and encouragement we have received in our community," explains Mrs. Stacey Torrence, ACA Head of School, "The purpose of the ACA-LBC satellite location is to provide continued opportunity for growth while supporting the existing Rhetoric (High) School in a safe and well-ordered environment conducive to learning."
Grades 9th through 12th, are now coming of age and with that they are truly discovering themselves and beginning to understand God's calling to serve His purpose.
The Rhetoric stage requires much rigor in all core academics, as students must now support what they believe to be true with facts and not just personal opinions. They must now truly answer the question "why."
Ideas must be supported with research and expressed with a mature understanding of both Biblical and World view as they prepare for the next stage, leading to the level of University.
Students are concerned with what is happening in the world around them and desire to express their thoughts and concerns.
Teachers guide these students to an even greater understanding of the world they live in, by ministering to them and instilling a life-long love for learning.
The goal of the Academy is ultimately to produce integrity filled adults, ready to face the challenges of today's society, both the known and unknown.
