The A.C.T.S. Academy is a program specifically designed to help homeschool students gain a variety of skills and experiences that will be useful in future ministry. The Bible teaches that all believers should be active in ministry and service within their own local church. Our goal is to equip young people with music, speech, drama and hands-on skill, and instill the need and desire to use that ability for the glory of God. The program covers all grades from K-12th and students from nearly 20 churches attend the Academy. Enrollment is open to any family that agrees with our doctrinal position and meets our enrollment requirements.
Music is a vital part of the Christian walk and we are scripturally commanded to use music to teach and encourage one another in truth. At the Academy each student is involved in choir. Two concerts are given each year for the students to put forward what they have been learning. Additionally, we have a traveling music team that ministers in local churches and nursing homes.
We believe that effective speaking is a learned habit rather than a short term crash course. For that reason our students begin addressing audiences at the very earliest ages. We strive to help each student reach their maximum potential so that their delivery will not hinder the message.
Acting is a wonderful tool to help break down shyness & self-imposed limitations. We produce two staged productions each year: one Jr. High, and one Sr. High. It is our goal to use these events to encourage our students in their personal growth and to give them knowledge that they might use to further the gospel.
We have a fully equipped woodshop where the young men can improve their trade skills. Our Home Ecominic’s class stretches the young ladies in various fields while emphasizing the biblical role of women in the family. Both classes emphasize that whatever the skill, it has usefulness in helping others.
