Joshua Institute Academy provides daily Elementary and Secondary schooling options for those who need a non-traditional learning environment. We believe that there are no exceptions to “fearfully and wonderfully made” in God’s eyes, that each student is uniquely gifted with strengths, and that transformation can happen by the renewing of the mind. The Mission Statement for the Academy describes how we put this into practice.
In partnership with families, we develop students in grades 2 through 12 with learning, attention, and language difficulties by shepherding them through a Christ-centered education. Before students can lean into their potential, they must first believe they have it. We take a whole person approach by looking beyond outward behaviors to get to the root of what may be causing our student’s learning difficulties. We challenge our students to achieve their fullest potential spiritually, academically, socially, physically, relationally, preparing them with the foundation of God’s unchanging truth so that they can serve Christ in a rapidly changing world.
The Academy provides personalized education plans created to meet the individual needs of students and are led by trained teachers and/or educational coaches. We incorporate a therapeutic and multi-sensory approach to strengthen areas of weakness while celebrating and developing students’ strengths. Individualized success plans for each student, developed in partnership with parent and student input, provide a roadmap for their personalized learning journey. We challenge students just above their comfort zone so that they grow, persevere, and experience success without being overwhelmed or discouraged to the point of giving up. By focusing on teaching students how to think, not just what to think, students learn critical thinking skills to apply in a variety of situations. All plans may be augmented by additional personalized learning services. Please see our Elementary or Secondary pages for more information.
