Victory World Christian School has an ongoing and intentional process of continually developing our school’s academic program by focusing on providing our students with an encouraging and loving atmosphere that serves as the canopy under which of our challenging academic environment exists. Every day, our teachers endeavor to celebrate with our students the excitement and wonderment of learning. Our students continually inspire us with their desire to learn. Our teachers and teacher’s aides welcome students to their classrooms before school, at break time, and after school without hesitation if one of our learners is having trouble with a particular concept, or learning process. We have tutors available for our students to help them become better readers and mathematicians.
What’s the outcome of your academic program?
For the first quarter of the 2016-2017 academic year, 62% of our students earned recognition on our All A Honor Roll or All A and B Honor Roll. While student grades are the result of their academic effort in our classrooms, our standardized test scores certainly confirm our student’s academic excellence. The results of our nationally normed standardized test scores for the 2015-2016 academic year showed that the average grade-level cumulative score was in the 80th-95th percentile at VWCS.
The Duke University Talent Identification Program has a specially designed academic honors program known as Talent Search for 4th – 6th grade students. The Duke TIP program web site described the program’s purpose as a way to:
- – Motivate students to focus on and take pride in their academic achievements.
- – Reward positive academic performance through special recognition.
- – Provide educational enrichment opportunities to students and their families.
- – Provide an above-level testing experience to better assess student abilities.
- – Offer independent learning materials for students and teachers seeking to augment classroom instruction with advanced courses developed by gifted education experts.
In order to qualify for the program, students in the 4th – 6th grade must score at or above the 95th percentile on at least one accepted grade-level standardized sub-test or total test battery. At VWCS, our students take the Terra Nova exam as our nationally normed standardized test. For the 2015-2016 academic year, 74% of our 4th and 5th grade students earned a test score at or above the 95th percentile in at least one, or more, grade-level standardized sub-test score.
One additional indicator of our student’s academic excellence is the President’s Education Awards Program. The President’s Education Awards Program “honors graduating elementary, middle school, and high school students for their achievement and hard work.” Check it out. To be eligible to be part of this program, graduating 5th graders must earn a grade point average of at least 90 on a 100 point scale over the course of their K4-5th grade education journey. In addition, there are school standards that students must meet to be eligible for this prestigious award, including participating in school sponsored service project, and standardized test score results. As of the end of the first quarter of the 2016-2017 school year, 50% of VWCS 2016-2017 graduating 5th graders are eligible for the President’s Award for Educational Excellence.
How does it work?
VWCS has excellent teachers; many with graduate degrees. All of VWCS teachers are certified either by the State of Georgia or the Association of Christian Schools International. We offer small class sizes for our students. Our students utilize some of the most current technology devices and software designed for education that is available today. Our 1:1 iPad program begins with K4 students, as does our 5 day a week foreign language class (Spanish). Our Robotics classes, Computer classes, Music classes, Drama classes, and Art classes each play an important role in our student’s education life. However, the most important aspect of our academic program is how the partnership between our school and our parents works like a well-oiled machine. Excellent two-way communications, a highly effective cloud based student support system, and a rigorous curriculum all play important roles in our student/parent/teacher team.
