What is the ABEKA Video Curriculum? ACA partners with Abeka Academy to provide pre-recorded video instruction from Pensecola Christian Academy’s master teachers. Pensecola Christian Academy has recorded their experienced master teachers as they teach all subjects in Grades K4-12th. Abeka continues to update these videos on a continual basis so as to keep them fresh, relevant, and up-to-date. These videos were recorded in such a way as to include not only the students present in the video but also to include the future students who would be watching these videos. In doing this, Abeka has been able to make this quality traditional education possible and affordable to students all around the world.
The students of ACA will mainly receive instruction from the master teachers via the ABEKA Video Curriculum. ACA’s on-site teacher/ administrator will train and enforce proper classroom habits, follow the progress of each class, check homework and class assignments, grade papers, help students in areas they struggle, listen to oral reading, and supervise daily procedures. Normal class problems are handled as in any typical classroom setting. Seat work, independent work time, lunch-room and restroom breaks are built into the master schedule.
The entire ABEKA program has been designed with your child in mind. With the help of the on-site teacher/ administrator, your child will be able to complete assignments and activities that relate to the ABEKA master teacher and students as though he were actually in the classroom.
Will students sit in front of a television all day? No, actual viewing time is only about three to four hours of a seven-hour school day. This gives the on-site teacher/ administrator time to give individual class help. The viewing time is divided up throughout the day by seat-work, study hall, breaks/ recess, lunch, and P.E.
